The Best Education in Numismatics

Posted on 5/13/2011

The ANA Summer Seminar remains the best educational experience in numismatics. 70 percent of Summer Seminar students return every year. Learn more about Summer Seminar and take a look at one of the courses being taught by a PMG expert.

For many, the American Numismatic Association's (ANA) Summer Seminar, is a life-changing event. It has catapulted the careers of many of the nation's most successful numismatic collectors, authors and dealers, and guided young numismatists to become hobby leaders.

Now celebrating its 43rd year, Summer Seminar features a lineup of classes to meet virtually every collector's needs, including ancients, paper money, counterfeit detection, grading, the Civil War, digital photography, Lincoln cents, hobo nickels, medals, tokens, and more. Students meet and learn from the hobby's most prominent scholars, rising young stars and successful business leaders - including a PMG Grader!

Your class experience is a true seminar: students gathered in small groups where everyone actively participates. You'll learn not only from instructors who are recognized leaders in their fields, but also from the collective experiences of fellow students, who range in age from 13 to 90.
