The American Numismatic Society (ANS) has announced its next installment of the Money Talks seminar series. The seminar is titled From Acorn To Sapling: The American Numismatic Society Before Huntington and will be held on Saturday, August 1st at 1:00 PM Eastern.

The ANS’s symbol is the mighty oak grown from a tiny acorn. But the tree didn’t become fully rooted until after 1905, when Archer Huntington—who gave the Society a building, a professional staff, and a firm commitment to scholarly publishing—became president. We will look at the Society during its pre-Huntington, “sapling” years, taking into consideration its members as well as other nineteenth-century numismatic groups.

The Money Talks lectures generally are one hour in length and ANS members can contact Emma Pratte at membership@numismatics.org to register for the event and get the link to the video conference.

Access to the Money Talks seminar series is limited to ANS members. The lecture series, which are now held via a webinar, gives members of the society unique insights and updates to Numismatic projects, finds, and research from some of the top Numismatist in the world. 

Generally, 2-3 weeks after each Money Talk lecture, the ANS publishes it on their YouTube channel – but that is not always a guarantee. 

Information on joining the American Numismatic Society can be found on the Membership page of the Society’s site. Member gives access to the Money Talks lecture series as well as other benefits, including:
