2021 National Coin Week Youth Activity

The 2021 National Coin Week theme is “Money, Big & Bold.” All collectors 17 and under are invited to participate in this year’s young numismatist activity!


ncw yn activity 2021The challenge: create something edible – sweet of savory – that resembles money. Your item can look like a coin, piece of paper money or a bullion bar, or other numismatic object. Here are the rules:

Your money food can be any shape and any food. It does not have to be a round coin or a rectangle piece of paper money. 

No portion of your money food can be “pre-made” or “store bought.” For example, you cannot buy a large cookie at the store and decorate it yourself. Of course, you can purchase all of the ingredients you need. 

Your submission must consist of an image of the money you created, the recipe, and 1-2 sentences describing the name of the object and connection with money. 

Include your name, age and address. You do not have to be a member of the American Numismatic Association to participate. 

There are two age categories: 12 and under | 13-17.  All entrants will earn a prize and there will be a grand prize winner in each age category!

**We encourage a parent or guardian to supervise if your stove or any other heating element is used.

Make your monetary creation Big & Bold (and delicious) and have a great time! Entries must be received by April 30, 2021. No exceptions.
