2013 National Coin Week contest winners named

Congratulations to Young Numismatist Garrett Ziss and the Nashua Coin Club (New Hampshire), grand prize winners in the ANA's 2013 National Coin Week activities. Ziss, a Pennsylvania native, receives a 2008 American Buffalo proof tenth-ounce gold $5 piece for winning the American Numismatic Association's Video Trivia Challenge. The Nashua won the same grand prize for winning the ANA's Buffalo Nickel Club Trivia Challenge.


The theme for the 2013 National Coin Week, April 21-27, was "Buffalo Nickel Centennial: Black Diamond Shines Again," a tribute to the 100thanniversary of the Buffalo nickel. Clubs & collectors across the country presented programs, exhibits and meetings to commemorate the Civil War and its money. The ANA provided buttons, bookmarks and educational materials to more than 75 clubs who registered.


Congratulations to all of this year's contest prize winners, and especially to the six clubs that received a perfect score on the Club Trivia Challenge.
