national coin week 2017
Next year marks the 100th anniversary of United States involvement in "The War to End All Wars," World War I. To honor the connection between numismatics and the military throughout history, “Conflict and Courage: Money and the Military” has been selected as the theme for 2017 National Coin Week, April 16-22. The 94th annual event will focus on everything from ancient coins celebrating battles, to siege money of the Renaissance, to scrip, MPCs and commemorative coins around the world.
Congratulations to ANA member John Hunt, who provided the winning theme submission. He receives a 2005 Marine Corps 230th Anniversary silver dollar.
The ANA will have online promotional and educational materials including a student activity, reading list, sample press release, proclamation and interactive brochure. Exhibit panels and a wealth of articles from The Numismatist will be available to print for use at schools, libraries and club meetings. For more information visit www.NationalCoinWeek.org.
