Starting today, American Numismatic Association (ANA) members and nonmembers can stay on top of breaking industry news, access exclusive articles, read fan-favorite columns from The Numismatist, and listen to audio versions of articles on the go. The team behind the ANA’s official publication, The Numismatist, is launching the Reading Room – a new ANA member benefit. This virtual portal, accessible from mobile devices, tablets, and desktop computers, offers:
- News articles delivered weekly, including stories not appearing in the magazine
- A weekly “Notable News” article covering numismatic headlines
- Two monthly “Reading Room Exclusive” articles covering various topics
- Access to “U.S. Coins,” “Paper Money,” “Tokens & Medals,” and “Counterfeit Detection” two weeks before the digital edition of The Numismatist is published
- Exclusive feature articles published throughout the year
The ANA will also send a monthly eBlast – the “Reading Room Rundown” – that will include links to the editor’s top five stories, a relevant article from the archive (with audio), and notable news from the world of numismatics. These emails can be easily shared with friends and family to promote interesting stories related to the hobby.
“Much like our flagship publication, the Reading Room is an inclusive space, and collectors of all interests and experience levels will enjoy its content,” says Editor-in-Chief Caleb Noel. “The site is easy to navigate, articles link directly to social media and email, and most importantly, it’s tailor-made for the tech generation. Most articles are under 1,000 words, and we’ve provided audio versions of all Reading Room Exclusives narrated by yours truly so you can listen on the go. And this is just the beginning; next year, my team and I will debut tons of new content and digital exclusives that I know you will enjoy.”
Through December 15, ANA members and non-members alike will have access to the Reading Room. However, following December 15, the Reading Room will become an ANA member benefit only. Visitors to readingroom.money.org can start exploring the new publication.
