Chicago notes highlight depression-era Bank Holiday display at the Money Museum

Tales from the Vault | ANA Official Post | ANAStaff

This August the ANA concludes a three-year run of holding its annual World’s Fair of Money in Chicago, a city that has played a significant role of the Association’s history. The organization was founded in 1891 at the Commercial Hotel on the corner of Lake and Dearborn streets downtown, and the ANA’s “Branch No. 1” evolved to become the Chicago Coin Club in 1919 and is the longest-tenured ANA member club. The 1920 annual ANA convention, held at the Art Institute of Chicago, was noteworthy: Samuel Brown astonished attendees by displaying five 1913 Liberty Head nickels for the first time, and Farran Zerbe called for a circulating coin celebrating peace – spearheading the eventual creation of the Peace Dollar.
