Join the American Numismatic Association (ANA) in celebrating two of the hobby’s titans — Steve Ivy and Jim Halperin, founders of Heritage Auctions — at the inaugural Legacy Dinner, a fundraising event to benefit the ANA Legacy Series. The event will take place at the National Money Show in Dallas, Thursday, March 3, 2016 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, located at 650 S. Griffin Street.
The Legacy Series, moderated by Barbara Gregory, editor-in-chief of The Numismatist, acquaints collectors with the legends and heroes of the numismatic hobby, and celebrates their lives and contributions.
The event honors Steve Ivy and Jim Halperin, whose careers have significantly impacted the numismatic community through their vision, leadership and trend-setting approaches to the hobby and the auction industry.
The ticket price of $125 includes a three-course dinner highlighted by a duo of tenderloin filet and Maryland crab cake, followed by the Legacy Series interview with Steve Ivy and Jim Halperin.
The Legacy Series program was introduced in 2015. Past installments have celebrated the lives of professional numismatists Q. David Bowers, Ray Dillard and Fred Weinberg. The taped interviews shed light on the accomplishments, successes and early memories of the hobby’s top luminaries. All interviews are recorded and posted to both the ANA’s YouTube channel and money.org for viewers to explore.
Don’t miss this opportunity to honor two of the hobby’s icons, while learning more about their challenges and crowning achievements.
