If you've been a member since 1965, then I think that they should GIVE you a life membership!
coins to NGC for grading and not having to be an NGC member. The best
benefit is the Numismatist magazine. 3-4 must read articles each month.
Whenever the WFoM is in Denver I attend and I take the bus trip to
Colorado Springs to spend time for an afternoon at the headquarters. For
myself I enjoy the membership.
Yeh, me too.
There are some that dislike the ANA leadership but I don't know why they have that opinion. Maybe it has something to do with the way they spend ANA money?
1. Allows purchase of Hugh Wood insurance.
2. Required to join North American Collectibles Association which then allows purchase of Ship-and-Insure insurance for valuables shipped by most carriers.
3. Numismatist, both current and past issues of this great magazine.
4. Two large shows per year.
5. Required to join CAC.
6. Coin museum at HQ.
7. Mail lending library with extensive holdings.
8. Not so obvious is representing and defending the hobby to the public, to government officials and to legislators.
ANA is very different from ANS (American Numismatic Society) to which I also have belonged for many years. ANS is primarily a research organization although is has some functions in common with ANA … coin museum, magazine, and representing numismatics to the world.
I recommend joining both, but if you’re collector and choosing only one, choose ANA.
I don't understand this. I'm not a member of CAC but I am a member of ANA.
If you want to join CAC, you first have to be a member of ANA. Cal
Both have been a great help. Thanks, guys and gals.
If you've been a dues-paying member for 50 years, they'll send you The Numismatist free, no more dues to get it. That's what happened to me, at any rate.
Just habit to send them a check. And I still support the hobby.
