Florence Schook School of Numismatics

ANA President Florence Schook dedicated much of her life to educating young collectors and stressing the importance of knowledge in the enjoyment of the hobby.

The American Numismatic Association strives to carry on her commitment to education by offering the best educational programs in the hobby. Whether you’re new to the hobby or a seasoned collector, there’s a program offering that will expand your knowledge and enrich your enjoyment of the hobby.

Attend the annual week-long Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs to learn about grading, counterfeit detection and more; join us at a one- to three-day workshop in select locations throughout the country; participate in live online webinars, sit in on a Money Talks presentation at one of our national shows; and/or complete the Numismatic Diploma Program and learn the basics.

The knowledge you’ll gain will enhance your understanding of the hobby, introduce you to an enormous body of numismatic resources, and help you become a smarter, more sophisticated collector.
