ANA Summer Seminar registration deadline is approaching

For the first time in two years, interested collectors and enthusiasts have the opportunity to register for a live, in-person American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar, to be held June 18-30 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Billed as “the best numismatic vacation ever”, the seminar offers courses and events covering many different facets of numismatics.

The registration deadline for the summer seminar is May 22.

The summer seminar will take place in two sessions, the first scheduled from June 18 to 23, the second from June 25 to 30.

In late 2021, the ANA announced a return to in-person learning for its 2022 educational events; the 2020 and 2021 summer seminars have been canceled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vaccination records and masks are not mandatory for the 2022 seminar.
