ANA Exonumia

Do you collect ANA Badges and Medals? If so, how do you collect? Convention badges, official medals, member tokens, dealer tokens, everything?

I collect the 1969 ANA convention medals because they feature a design by Frank Gasparro that was considered for the small dollar after the Eisenhower Dollar was discontinued. I really like this design and am glad I was able to obtain this set of medals.

I...want...that...medal. Pardon my drooling. I collect tokens lightly, but I love ANA convention medals.

I stumbled upon a few ANA exhibitors medals on Ebay amd entered only one bid on each. Two I was successful and the third I was out bid but got a second chance "bid" and made an offer and got it too, These were all designed by Ron Landis so they were side bars for my Raniassance medals that he designed and produced. There are whole bunch of ANA ribbon medals and other ANA items on Ebay.

I started a Collection page for my collection. Not an extensive collection, but I do have some early material that I will slowly get posted. You have to go to my page and scroll to the bottom to find it.

Stay tuned the Greater Houston Coin Club is about to unveil its 60th anniversary medal which will be available to its members. Daniel Carr is striking the medal for them.

In regards to the ANA medals and tokens are you including the Summer Seminar tokens that are distributed at the Thursday banquets when the certificates are handed out and other recognitions are passed out. If so you have a whole lot of those to collect and the imagery on them is nice and artistic.

I am not a ANA medal convention collecter, but over the years I picked up a few.  I subsequently traded them for other coins.  I still have one, a 1920 silver medal/badge from the Chicago annual convention.  In addition to the ANA logo, there is an image of Fort Dearborn.  It was struck by Bastian Brothers Co. of Rochester, New York.


The official photograph records the images and names of 67 participants at the 1920 convention, including Henry Chapman, S.H. Chapman and B. Max Mehl.

I also discovered that I have a 1950 ANA convention badge.  That convention was in Milwaukee.

ANA medal and badge collectors need to get to know David Sklow.  He had done some very informative programs on both topics and is quite knowledgeable.  Many times these items are in his auctions at Fine Numismatic Books. The website is finenumismaticbooks.com.

Excellent advice! David Sklow is brilliant; a virtual encyclopedia of numismatic knowledge, especially when it comes to anything literary or ANA. I guess that's why he's the ANA Historian! I don't know of too many more people than him to contact about ANA history, including ANA convention badges and medals.
