Educational Seminars – ANA School of Numismatics Coming to Virginia


Become a smarter collector and learn how to preserve your investments

Coin Grading, Problem Coins & Conservation (two-day seminar)

The ANA School of Numismatics is offering an educational course held in conjunction with the annual Virginia Numismatic Association (VNA) Convention. “Coin Grading, Problem Coins & Conservation” will be offered prior to the VNA show.

The biggest mistake collectors and dealers make is buying coins they shouldn’t have purchased in the first place — coins that have grade, surface or conservation issues that they didn’t see. This two-day seminar will help students avoid costly mistakes by developing their grading skills and teaching them to spot a wide variety of surface problems, enhancements, alterations and conservation issues that can adversely affect a coin’s grade.

The material covered is comprehensive and suitable for novice and experienced collectors. The seminar uses images, discussion and hands-on examination of hundreds of certified graded and details graded coins in the ANA’s Grading Sets.

  • Instructor: Brian Silliman, professional numismatist, Brian Silliman Rare Coins and former NGC and ANACS grader/authenticator
  • Time: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 21-22, 2016
  • Tuition: $248 for ANA and VNA members; $348 for non-members. ANA Life Members receive $40 off.
  • Location: Fredericksburg Expo Center, 2371 Carl D Silver Pkwy, Fredericksburg, VA, 22401
