ana 2020 fun seminars

The American Numismatic Association has built a reputation for high-quality, hands-on numismatic training through our Technical Series Seminars. We believe the quality of training can be measured by the knowledge of your instructor, and we are proud to have some of the best instructors in the industry. Our small class size allows you to forge connections with fellow students and instructors alike, providing an opportunity for professional camaraderie and networking.

The ANA's Florence Schook School of Numismatics is offering two educational courses held in conjunction with the 65th annual Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Convention. "Counterfeit Detection: Classic Fakes & Chinese-Made Counterfeits" and "Learn to Discern: Grading U.S. Coins" will be offered prior to the FUN show, Jan. 7 and 8.

The FUN Convention begins Jan. 9 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
