Symposium Overview

From the earliest times engravers created the first dies, molds or printing plates, certain examples have been recognized for their outstanding artistry and beauty.  From the ancient coins of the “Naxos Master” to Augustus Saint-Gauden’s Liberty design for the 1907 $20 or Will Hicok Low’s design for the front of the 1896 $5 silver certificate or the Renaissance medals of Pisanello, this year’s Sundman lecture submissions should be based on masterpieces of numismatics.  Papers that emphasize new research and scholarship will be prioritized.

Submission Guidelines

If you wish to be a speaker at the symposium, please submit a summary of your lecture, not to exceed 500 words. Each summary should contain an introduction, a brief discussion of the subject, and sources and research method. Electronic submissions are preferred, but not required.
