The American Numismatic Society (ANS) has officially opened its new headquarters in lower Manhattan, New York. The ANS indicates its educational and research facilities are now available to international scholars, students and members of the general public — ANS has one of the world’s largest numismatic libraries and a vast coin collection.
Open as well is the ANS museum and exhibits. The new address is:
American Numismatic Society
75 Varick Street, 11th floor
New York, NY 10013
In addition to the opening, the ANS is also in the middle of a new website re-design. While not yet complete, the site looks cleaner and is easier to navigate.
The American Numismatic Society organized in 1858 and incorporated in 1865 in New York State. It operates as a research museum and is recognized as a publicly supported organization, supported by membership fees and contributions, sales of publications, and foundation, corporate and government support.
