Educational programs on stage at ANA show in Jacksonsville

From early Florida money to learning the value and caring for your coin collection, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) is offering free programs on these and many more topics at its National Money ShowSM 2002 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, March 7-9.

ANA Education Director Gail Baker says, “We are extremely fortunate again at this year’s Numismatic Theatre to have a wonderful lineup of top numismatists. Our educational programs always have been superb, and I am certain this year’s nearly 20 hours of free programs will once again be the best.”
