Welcome to The Exchange, a blog for ANA members to exchange ideas


Welcome to The Exchange, a blog for and about ANA members. It's a place for collectors like you to exchange ideas, research, commentary and other information with each other here at 


The success of this particular blog will depend greatly on those who wish to start discussions -- i.e. we're looking for a few good writers to get the ball rolling in sharing ideas, research, commentary and other information. 


If you're interested in blogging here at, drop me a line at or leave a comment below so I can get you set up. 


When it comes to blog topics, the sky is truly the limit. Numismatics is a wide field, and this blog will reflect that. I've gotten the ball rolling with a few topic areas (i.e. categories), but I've probably missed several along the way. But that's the great thing about blogs: They're always growing. It only takes a second to add a new category. 


So if you want to blog on any particular collecting area, we'd love to hear from you. 


Maybe your niche in numismatics has more to do with research. Maybe you'd like to share some good research avenues for other collectors. We'd love to hear from you, too. 


Or maybe your thing is education. I've long admired the efforts made by members of our association to ensure the hobby continues to grow for future generations - nobody takes care of the young numismatists like ANA members. If you'd like to blog about your educational efforts, recruitment drives or other local activity, we would love to hear from you, too. 


Or maybe you're really into the news of numismatics. Maybe you like to read and comment on auction lots, or you like to report on bills before Congress that will affect the hobby. You guessed it - we want to hear from you, too. 


Or maybe you're not the type who wants to start a conversation, but you'd like to comment on something someone else wrote. That's easy to do as well - just hit the "comment" button and let us know what you think. All we ask is that you keep the conversation civil and refrain from using swear words and resorting to name-calling. In other words, if you wouldn't say it in front of your mother, don't say it in a comment either. 


Welcome to The Exchange. Now, let's start sharing some ideas. What do you want to see here? Hit the comments and let me know, please.

Wonderful! Of course, I'm a fan of early copper and early americana in general, so I'd love to see a presence here for that. Also, I have a particular interest in the auction business. Thank you for asking!
