A little known annual event, National Coin Week, is sponsored by the American Numismatic Association of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The ANA was chartered by Congress in 1912, and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating people to study and collect money and related items.
This year National Coin Week will be observed April 20-26, and the theme is “Celebrating Civic Service” and the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Half Dollar.
