The American Numismatic Association (ANA) has released its catalog of courses that will be available this summer at its annual Summer Seminar series in Colorado Springs, Colorado. These week long seminars are offered for two weeks beginning at the end of June. I attended in the summer of 2010 and it is an experience that I will never forget. I honed my grading skills by learning to grade from professional graders from PCGS and NGC. I ate meals with Cliff Mishler (former ANA president), Kenneth Bressett (editor of the Red Book), Bill Fivaz (author of the Cherrypicker's Guide) and many others. If you're a beginner and looking to dive deeper into coin collecting or an advanced collector looking to specialize on a topic, you will find something that will interest you. From half cents to gold coins to patterns, and everything in between, the Summer Seminars have it all!
If you act now, ANA members who register for Summer Seminar and pay campus fees by March 29 will receive a $50 discount.
