Preserving our freedom to collect


The Ancient Coin Collectors Guild has become a driving force in the ongoing effort to protect coin collectors and museums in which coins are stored from being forced to give up these items to foreign governments under the premise the coins are the cultural patrimony of the claimant nation. — Richard Giedroyc, World Coin News April 26, 2010

ACCG Benefit Auction Planned

An online auction of ancient coins will be held in August 2008 to raise funds for ACCG legal initiatives.

April 23, 2008

An Ancient Coin Collectors Guild benefit auction is currently being organized to raise funds for anticipated legal expenses in opposition to State Department imposed import restrictions on ancient coins. The online sale, closing on August 17, 2008, will be hosted on the Vauction site and auction lots will be exhibited at the Classical Numismatic Group bourse table at the American Numismatic Association convention in Baltimore from July 30th through August 3rd. Individuals wishing to donate coins for this sale may contact Wayne G. Sayles, ACCG Executive Director, for details by telephone at 417-679-2142 or by email at A goal of 150 lots has been established and some exceptional coins have already been pledged. All donations are welcome. Coins of lesser grade or value may be combined into multiple coin lots. All donations should be arranged as early as possible, but not later than June 15, 2008 in order to provide time for proper cataloging and processing. Donors names will be indicated with each lot, but donors wishing to remain anonymous may do so as well.

This is an excellent opportunity for all members and non-member supporters of the ACCG to demonstrate their support for the hobby in a way that is perhaps less taxing than cash donations.

As coins are donated, they will be catalogued and posted as a preview at the Vauction web site. Click the following link to view these lots.

The ACCG is an IRS designated 501c4 non-profit organization involved primarily in lobbying activities. As such, donations may not be tax deductible. If this is a factor in your decision please consult with your tax preparer.
