ANA Board Sets New Membership Rates and Tiers

by American Numismatic Association on March 19, 2009 · 0 comments

ANAThe American Numismatic Association Board of Governors has finalized new membership tiers, reducing annual dues for those who prefer reading The Numismatist online while increasing rates for those who want to have the magazine delivered to their door each month.

Under the new fee structure, which takes effect for members on June 1 and for nonmembers on April 1, a basic membership including online delivery of The Numismatist will be $28 per year — an $8 decrease.

Regular membership, which includes monthly mail delivery of the magazine, will be $46 per year — an increase of $10. Members in both tiers will otherwise receive the same ANA benefits including the privilege of submitting coins and paper money directly for grading and conservation services to Numismatic Guaranty Corp., Paper Money Guaranty and Numismatic Conservation Services and full use of the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library.

Members also receive discounts on numismatic loans from Collateral Finance Corp. and collection insurance from Hugh Wood Inc., as well as from Hertz Rental Car; savings on numismatic books and supplies; mediation services; and full access to ANA educational programs including Summer Seminar, which is limited to members.

All ANA members also will be admitted free to the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum and Dwight N. Manley Library in Colorado Springs and to all ANA conventions. Beginning April 1, nonmembers will be charged admission fees to visit the museum, use the library and to attend both the National Money Show™ and the World’s Fair of Money®. New member benefits will be added later this spring and throughout the upcoming year.


"We are restructuring rates to better reflect the true costs of delivering service to our members," said ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd. "Raising regular membership dues is necessary to reflect cost increases over the past several years.

At the same time, I am pleased to introduce our newest basic membership tier with a reduction in dues. This option allows members to enjoy all their member benefits including the environmentally friendly online magazine. The two tiers provide a choice that can work for everyone."


Annual dues for basic membership (online magazine only) were set at $14 for both juniors (17 and younger) and associate members. Regular juniors will pay $26 annually, and regular club fees were raised to $75, reflecting the many benefits clubs receive for their members who do not belong to the ANA. International members who are mailed the magazine will pay an additional $3 per month above the regular membership dues.


"Membership in the ANA is a great value," said President Barry Stuppler. "The ANA has the best educational programs in numismatics; owns and operates the hobby’s best museum and library, and runs two of the premier coin shows in the world. Members get a world of value for their investment, and we look forward to adding more benefits in the future."
