ANA starts electronic newsletter for young numismatists

“Your Newsletter,” an electronic communication device designed for Young Numismatists (YNs), has been launched by the American Numismatic Association (ANA).

“We were looking for a way to improve communication with YNs on an informal basis,” says ANA Education Director Gail Baker, who is spearheading the project. “Many young collectors are very conversant with the Internet and E-mail, and we think this weekly newsletter is right up their alley.”

Baker notes that the electronic publication, named by long-time YN advisor Larry Gentile Sr., is designed to keep YNs up-to-date on projects, events and activities offered by the ANA and its member clubs. It also provides a forum for exchanging ideas, interests and stories, and includes games, quizzes and special opportunities to earn “YN Dollars” that can be spent – either in person or by mail bid – at special auctions held for young numismatists every summer.

“Your Newsletter” is a cooperative information device,” Baker adds. “All young collectors and adults who work with YNs can have the newsletter E-mailed directly to them, or they can read it on the ANA’s web site ( We advise our subscribers that the newsletter is intended for personal or private use and commercial distribution is prohibited.”

The ANA offers a wide variety of programs and services for its Junior and Student members, age 22 and younger, all at a reduced membership fee – $15 annually.
