What's going on at the ANA? - December 2012 - January 2013


Welcome to another edition of "What's going on at the ANA?"


I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and started your new year with a few positive New Year's resolutions that include numismatic progress and enhancing the relationship between the ANA and your fellow numismatic collectors.


BREAKING NEWS-For the first time, we will have an ANA Clubs & District Reps meeting at the FUN show (see http://www.funtopics.com/fun-convention.html for additional info).


The meeting will be held on Saturday morning, 8-9 a.m., in room S331A. I hope to see as many of you as possible. Please note that the meeting start time has been moved to 8 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m., since some members have other functions that start at 9 a.m.


As I did in previous newsletters, I will continue with the advantages of being a member of the ANA. This month's advantage: Discounted Krause Publications Subscriptions


By being a member of the ANA, you can save up to 83 percent off newsstand prices for Bank Note Reporter, Coins, Coin Prices, Numismatic News and World Coins News subscriptions.


You can also sign up for an annual or monthly subscription to the www.numismaster.com online database of U.S. and world coin and paper money price guides and save 25 percent off the regular price.


So, what else is new & exciting? Please see the following:

The 2012 Money Talks lecture series is available on DVD. More than 50 titles have been filmed in high definition and professionally edited to create the perfect way for collectors to learn more about the numismatic hobby. These DVDs make great gifts or can be used to increase attendance at coin club meetings. Price for each DVD is $24.95 plus $5 shipping and handling.
