ANA Announces 2007 National Coin Week Theme Contest

The American Numismatic Association is holding a contest to decide the next theme for National Coin Week, April 15-21, 2007. This contest is open to everyone, with the top three themes announced in early December. Winners receive the following prizes: 
  • • First place – a one-ounce American Buffalo 24-karat gold bullion coin 
  • • Second place – a one-half-ounce gold American Eagle bullion coin 
  • • Third place – a one-fourth-ounce gold American Eagle bullion coin. 

All coins are certified and graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, the official grading and authentication company of the ANA. 

Each year during the third week of April, the ANA celebrates National Coin Week with exhibits, presentations and other activities at civic centers, libraries, and schools to let the world know about the joys of collecting and studying coins, paper notes, and other forms of money. Each National Coin Week has a theme chosen to engage people in learning more about money’s role in culture, art, history and science. The theme for 2006, A Penny Saved is a History Learned, celebrated the accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin and his contributions to numismatics. 

The deadline for submissions is Nov. 1. Anyone interested in participating should send their theme and, in 100 words or less, the reason why it should be selected as the theme for the 2007 National Coin Week. Be sure to include your name, address, telephone number, age, e-mail address and ANA member number (if applicable).
