On Thursday, August 11, 2016 at the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) World’s Fair of Money, the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) announced the winners of its annual writing competition at the NLG Bash, a dinner banquet attended by scores of the hobby’s most celebrated writers and publishers.

Numismatic Literary Guild AwardsCoinWeek took home a record nine awards, including Best Online News Website, Best Online Spot News Story, Best Website Coin Article, Best Web Site Column, Best All-Around Portfolio, Best Non-Broadcast Audio Report, Best Non-Commercial Video, Best Commercial Video, and the James L. Miller Memorial Award.

“The broad range of awards that the NLG honored CoinWeek with shows our commitment to using technology and the media in new ways to bring people into the hobby and to educate them,” said CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan. “This approach is essential for the long-term growth and sustainability of the numismatic marketplace,”

It is the fifth year in a row that CoinWeek has received an award in the Best Online News Website category, and one that CoinWeek founder and webmaster Scott Purvis is quite proud of.

“Our goal has always been to provide our readers with not only the finest content from the best writers in the industry,” Purvis said, “but also to expand CoinWeek into a multi-media content distribution platform. Combined with CoinWeek’s success in developing and using social media to attract new younger collectors, CoinWeek has become the essential gateway in helping our sponsors connect and communicate with a new generation of collectors.

“We are very excited to be on the cutting edge of so many facets of the industry.”

CoinWeek’s Award Winners:

In addition, CoinWeek’s Charles Morgan and Hubert Walker won an award for their column Market Whimsy, which ran in The Numismatist in 2015. CoinWeek contributor Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez also won an award for “Survival of the Cent and Nickel”, as published in COINage magazine.

Other Notable Winners

Heritage Auctions cataloger Mark Borckardt was awarded the guild’s coveted Clemy Award. Bestowed each year in consultation with the previous year’s winner, the Clemy is the Guild’s highest honor. Borckardt’s award serves as recognition for a career of excellent writing and research.

The NLG’s Book of the Year Award recognizes the one book with the “greatest potential for impact in numismatics” published during the award’s eligibility window, and this year’s award was presented to the trio of Leonard Augsburger, Roger W. Burdette and Joel Orosz for their biography Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman.
