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 member David Markgraf and his colleague Carl Rekow recently volunteered as mentors to the students at Covington Latin School in Kentucky. ACE (Ancient Coins for Education) teacher Kelly Kusch reports that both David and Carl went above and beyond the call of duty in their roles as mentors by helping students identify ancient coins, bringing their own coins for 'show and tell', and giving a hands-on presentation on how ancient coins were minted. They also provided advice and displays for the Ancient Coin Exhibitions.

For their efforts, the students at Covington Latin School and teacher Kelly Kusch presented both David and Carl with cards of appreciation. The smiles on everyones faces, mentors included, show how enriching an experience mentoring can be... for all concerned.

The ACCG and ACE are committed to educational outreach, as are mentors David Markgraf and Carl Rekow. Mentors help bring ancient history to life through their passion for the hobby and their dedication to students in the ACE program.
