Professional Numismatists Guild logo - 2024

The Professional Numismatists Guild (, a nonprofit organization composed of many of the marketplace’s top rare coin and paper money dealers, has announced 14 new member-dealers have joined and three former members have re-joined the group in recent months.

"In early January, we announced changes in the membership categories, as well as half-priced dues for the first two years for new members. This is attracting excellent-quality candidates who embrace the organization’s consumer protection motto of Knowledge and Integrity, and who now are following PNG’s strict Code of Ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise," said PNG Executive Director John Feigenbaum.

The three PNG membership categories are Gold, Gold Associate intended for employees of Gold category members, and Silver intended for non-dealers who are involved in numismatic-related projects such as marketing, museums, trade shows, and other work.
