Educational Journal Presents Advanced Studies in Numismatics
(Colorado Springs, Colorado) The American Numismatic Association’s new quarterly publication, ANA Journal, offering scholarly, in-depth articles on numismatic topics, will be introduced April 7-9 at the association’s National Money Show™ in Atlanta.
The peer-reviewed journal features articles based on the scholarly research of coins, tokens, paper notes and other forms of money.
“This publication lays a new foundation for our educational mission as we continue to build our identity by developing and expanding programs for members while reaching out to new collectors,” said ANA Executive Director Chris Cipoletti.”
The inaugural issue highlights the proceedings of the Maynard Sundman/Littleton Coin Company Lecture Series presented at the ANA World’s Fair of Money® in San Francisco in July 2005. Featured are keynote speaker Q. David Bowers (Great Collectors & Their Collections), Peter Huntoon, Ph.D. (73 Years of National Bank Currency), Douglas Mudd (Image and Republican Sovereignty), Christopher Pilliod (History of Die-Making in the United States) and Wendell Wolka (The Dark Side of Antebellum Banking).
“The introduction of any publication is a special event, but this first issue of ANAJ is particularly remarkable,” said ANA Outreach Director Lane Brunner, Ph.D. “It is a strong complement to the ANA’s acclaimed monthly magazine, Numismatist.” The 52-page, Spring 2006 edition of the softbound journal will be available in limited quantities at the ANA Table #100 in Atlanta at the special, introductory price of $16.95; an annual subscription is $65.95.
