ANA Announces 2008 National Coin Week Theme Contest
The American Numismatic Association is asking its members to provide the theme for 2008 National Coin Week, April 20-26. This contest is open to all ANA members, with the winning theme announced in early December. Individuals who submit the top three themes will win beautiful and valuable coins. Specific prizes will be announced in mid-November.
This year, National Coin Week will feature activities and exhibits that highlight youth across the globe. Submissions should reflect this topic by focusing on unity in a global society, and what role children and numismatics play in achieving this unity.
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 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 2007 – The Presidents are Coming! – celebrated the United States Mint’s Presidential $1 Coin Program.
The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30. Please include your theme idea and a brief description of why your submission should be chosen. Also include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and ANA member number.
Mail, fax or e-mail your idea for a theme to:
