Heritage Auction Galleries is awarding a complimentary second year of membership with the American Numismatic Association to young collectors who become junior members at 2008 ANA conventions. The offer will be honored at the Phoenix National Money Show™, March 7-9, and at the Baltimore World’s Fair of Money®, July 30-August 3.
“Everyone agrees that reaching out to youth is vital to the future of numismatics,” said Robert Korver, Director Emeritus of Heritage Auctions. “This initiative is a way to get young people involved and excited about our great hobby. We’re proud to promote the ANA’s mission.”
The junior membership offer is part of a larger effort by Heritage to strengthen numismatics through support of the ANA. This April, Heritage will award one life membership, five fiveyear memberships and 20 one-year memberships to people who completed its 2008 Auction Survey. Additionally, 10 ANA members will win $100 gift certificates to MoneyMarket, the ANA’s gift shop and online catalog. Heritage provided similar support in 2007.
“Our spring and summer conventions have always been a terrific place to attract young people to the Association,” said Ken Hallenbeck, ANA Executive Director. “This generous offer by Heritage ensures that young collectors can enjoy all of the educational benefits of membership at minimal cost.”
Heritage Auction Galleries has been the official auctioneer for numerous ANA conventions, including the 2008 Phoenix and Baltimore shows. For more information on upcoming auctions and programs, visit www.HA.com.
