Kraljevich and Goldstein have paired to teach courses in colonial numismatics at Summer Seminar since 2004.

Goldstein is the curator of Mechanical Arts and Numismatics at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Virginia, a position he has held for almost 13 years. He is also an award-winning researcher and writer whose work has appeared in numerous numismatic publications, including The Numismatist.

“I’m one of the luckiest guys alive,” Goldstein said after receiving his honor. “I get paid to do for a living something I would do anyway. I’m just flattered.”

Kraljevich built a career as a writer, researcher and cataloger before founding John Kraljevich Americana in 2007. He has attended Summer Seminar regularly for more than 25 years, as a student and later as an instructor starting in 2000. He was the ANA’s Young Numismatist of the Year in 1993 and was honored with the Glenn Smedley Award in 2011.

“I’m touched beyond belief,” Kraljevich said. “Summer Seminar has meant so much to me over the years. So many friendships come from here.”
