Member Volunteer Challenge



During his Inaugural Address on January 20, 1961, President John F. Kennedy famously challenged his fellow Americans to "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." This year ANA members have the opportunity to accept Kennedy's challenge, become engaged in their communities and win a gold coin or other great prizes!


ANA members can enter by volunteering at a non-profit such as a school, park, senior center, museum or other worthy service-based organization, and documenting their experiences. It can be an organization you have helped in the past, or somewhere new. Entries can be in video (under 3 minutes) or image & written (150-300 words with image) format.

Members who best promote the merit of his or her non-profit and the importance of volunteerism will receive a 2014 American Eagle quarter ounce gold proof coin; silver commemorative coins and 2014 proof sets will also be awarded.


  • 1st Prize: 2014 American Eagle quarter ounce gold proof coin

  • 2nd Prize: 2014 Civil Rights Act of 1964 proof silver dollar and 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters silver proof set

  • 3rd Prize: 1996 National Community Service proof silver dollar and 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters proof set
    *Other prizes will be awarded.

Entries must be received at the ANA by May 5. Please send videos, images and text via email to or by mail to:
American Numismatic Association
National Coin Week
818 N. Cascade Ave.
Colorado Springs, CO 80903


Please include your ANA member number, e-mail address, and the official name and contact information for your non-profit or service organization -- winning entries will be verified! Some participant entries will be shared on ANA social media and The Numismatist. The final decision for prizes will be judged by the ANA.
