YN Mail-Bid Auction in Full Swing 

Young members of the American Numismatic Association are actively bidding on a wide variety of numismatic collectibles in the ANA YN Mail-Bid Auction, an opportunity for collectors age 22 and younger to bid on items for their collection. 

All lots in the auction are sold for “YN Dollars,” that are earned by performing various numismatic activities at school, club or community events. 

Pictured is a 1986 PCGS-PR69D Cameo Jefferson Nickel, just one of the great numismatic items that are up for bidding. 

All bids must be received by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30. The auction catalog with complete directions for bidding and earning “YN Dollars” is available online at www.money.org. Click on “Young Numismatists” from the “Explore the World of Money” drop-down menu and on “YN Mail-Bid Auction.”
