Fall issue of ANA's "Discover Guide" now available
The latest edition of American Numismatic Association's (ANA) "discovery guide" - The World of Money - offers more ideas for introducing the joys of coin collecting to the general public, young and emerging collectors, families and educators.
"Our first issue last spring was a great success," says ANA Education Director Gail Baker. "We printed 28,000 copies and distributed them to our junior and student members, as well as clubs. They proved so popular, we decided to issue fall and spring editions, and, because of the interest in our first issue, we have printed 100,000 copies this fall and will send them to all ANA members."
Presented in a friendly, easy-to-read format, the articles are timely, interesting and fun, and the eight-page, 11 x 17-inch "newspaper" is packed with "Know more!" references to web sites, books and periodicals. The new issue features brief articles on the United States Mint's 50 State Quartersâ„¢ Program, ancient coins, the Roosevelt dime and euros, as well as a two-page feature on "The Tale of the Coin" - short stories on a wide variety of coins, including the Peace dollar, coins from England's penal colony in Australia and the "$5 nickel." The new ANA discovery guide also features an article on the recent "Sing a Song of Sixpence" ANA Museum exhibit and information about educational programs offered by the Association.
"The ANA discovery guide is a great publication to help introduce prospective collectors to numismatics," Baker says. "It also is the perfect give away for the National Open House we are suggesting clubs conduct for National Coin Week (April 20-26, 2003)."Copies of "Discover: The World of Money" are available in bulk to ANA members, clubs, educators and public speakers for little more than the cost of postage and handling: 50 copies, $10; 100 copies, $17.50; 250 copies, $30; and 500 copies, $45. (There is a 10% discount to ANA members.)
