    ANS - American Numismatic Society

    It's an organization you hear less about than some others, but that doesn't diminish its importance. The ANS has been around since 1858 and is dedicated to the furtherance of knowledge in the field of numismatics. Their mission statement -

    "The mission of the American Numismatic Society is to be the preeminent national institution advancing the study and appreciation of coins, medals and related objects of all cultures as historical and artistic documents, by maintaining the foremost numismatic collection and library, by supporting scholarly research and publications, and by sponsoring educational and interpretive programs for diverse audiences."

    Want to know a dealer you can trust in your area or an area you will be visiting ? Then consult the Dealer Directory. Want to read a book that you can't find ? Then borrow it from the ANA Library. Want to learn how to properly grade coins or detect counterfeits ? Then take an ANA Home Study Course or attend a seminar.
