The best education in Numismatics - period.
For many, Summer Seminar is a life-changing event. It has catapulted the careers of many of the nation's most successful numismatic collectors, authors and dealers, and guided young numismatists to become hobby leaders.
Now celebrating its 45th year, the 2013 Summer Seminar features a lineup of classes to meet virtually every collector's needs, including ancients, paper money, counterfeit detection, grading, the Civil War, digital photography, hobo nickels, medals, tokens, and more. Students meet and learn from the hobby's most prominent scholars, rising young stars and successful business leaders.

- Class 16-The First Coinage of the New World (1536 - 1821): has been cancelled due to extenuating circumstances
- Mini-Seminar B-Introduction to Coins of the Revolución (1913 - 1917): has been cancelled due to extenuating circumstances
- The course "Colonial Americana: An Exploration
beyond the Coins" was incorrectly listed as being part of this
year's Seminar. The correct course is "The Coins of Pre-Federal
America," which is the pre-cursor class to the "Colonial Americana"
course. The full course listing reads:
The Coins of Pre-Federal America
From Jamestown to the Constitution, America was beset with an overwhelming array of circulating coinage, both foreign and domestic. Beginning with a discussion of world coins adopted for use in early America, this course will focus on types avidly collected as U.S. colonial coins. Related topics, from counterfeiting to grading to archeology, will be discussed intensively in free-wheeling style. Instructors: John J. Kraljevich Jr., columnist for The Numismatist and professional numismatist, John Kraljevich Americana; and Erik Goldstein, curator of Mechanical Arts and Numismatics, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
Your class experience is a true seminar: students gathered in small groups where everyone actively participates. You'll learn not only from instructors who are recognized leaders in their fields, but also from the collective experiences of fellow students, who range in age from 13 to 90.
Summer Seminar dates for 2013 are June 22-28 for Session I and June 29-July 5 for Session II.
