Important information for our coin collecting community regarding COVID-19:

This is an unsettling time for all of us. Many venues and events are being closed/cancelled out of an abundance of caution. The ANA headquarters building and Edward C. Rochette Money Museum is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19. We will continue to provide updates as they become available. Museum patrons are invited to visit our galleries virtually in the interim. The ANA is offering additional digital resources during the pandemic, including free access to over 130 years of archived issues of The Numismatist. You can explore our full digital content library here.

ANA is following protocols established by the Centers for Disease Control, our state public health department and Colorado's Governor by reducing onsite staff. Many employees are now working remotely to serve our members. Returned phone calls, emails and requests for information may take slightly longer than usual; your patience is appreciated.


The ANA regrets to announce that our 2020 Summer Seminar has been cancelled due to coronavirus safety concerns.

American Numismatic Association Cancels 2020 Summer Seminar

The American Numismatic Association (ANA) announced that the 2020 Summer Seminar, scheduled for June 27-July 9 in Colorado Springs, Colo., has been cancelled due to coronavirus (COVID-19) safety concerns. 

"While it seemed inevitable with each passing week, we were officially notified by Colorado College today that they are suspending all summer programs and camps in order to 'restrict participants who have traveled to or from affected areas' associated with the coronavirus pandemic," says ANA Executive Director Kim Kiick.

Held on the campus of Colorado College adjacent to the ANA, Summer Seminar is a once-a-year opportunity for numismatic learning and camaraderie that offers hundreds of students from around the world a varied selection of week-long courses designed for discovery or continued study.

This is the event's first cancellation in its 50-plus year history.

"I know the students, instructors and staff are very disappointed in not being able to have a Summer Seminar this year," says ANA President Steve Ellsworth. "However, we are in agreement with Colorado College's decision and they have assured the ANA that they will work to reschedule Summer Seminar for 2021. We feel a huge loss of fellowship with our students and seminar instructors, as well as our team who has worked for months to make this beloved event a success. But our first priority is for the health and safety of our attendees and our community, so this is the right decision." 

Scholarships that were awarded for the 2020 Summer Seminar will be honored for the 2021 event. Anyone who has pre-registered for the 2020 event will receive a full refund.

The American Numismatic Association is a congressionally chartered nonprofit educational organization dedicated to encouraging people to study and collect coins and related items. The ANA helps its 25,000 members and the public discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of education and outreach programs, as well as its museum, library, publications, conventions and seminars.
