On Tuesday, September 9, Ed Moy, former Mint Director and author of American Gold & Platinum Eagles: A Guide to the U.S. Bullion Coin Programs, was honored by the Standish Foundation 4 Children at a charitable gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The Standish Foundation 4 Children works with the health care industry to create a positive healing environment for children.
The Foundation is headed by Andrea Mangione Standish, wife of PCGS Senior Grader and Vice-President of Business Development Michael “Miles” Standish.
At the event, more than 150 people, including former Congressmen, government officials, and staff from the U.S. Mint.
Praising Moy and his career of public service was former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr, and former Deleware Congressman, Mike Castle.
Castle worked alongside Moy on a number of coinage related issues, and is most known in numismatic circles for being a sponsor to the legislation that brought about the 50 State Quarters® program.
Moy spoke about his tenure as Mint Director and the important role that the U.S. bullion program plays in the precious metals investment market. He also thanked members of the U.S. Mint’s Washington, D.C. staff, many of whom had come to the event to congratulate their former boss on his post-Mint literary and business successes.
Moy currently works as the Chief Strategist for Sherman Oaks-based Precious Metals firm Fortress Gold Group.
