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

Ancient Coins for Education (ACE) - New Affiliate

The ACCG is honored to welcome ACE as our newest Affiliate Member.

December 13, 2004

The future of our hobby is in the hands of today's youth. The attitudes and interests that are developed now will be critical when these youngsters become the world's decision makers. If the hobby, as we know it, is to survive it will be because the general public is aware of what we do and understands why it is useful to society.

The Ancient Coins for Education program, with the motto "Helping to put ancient history into the hands of students everywhere", takes the ancient world directly to the classroom in an immediate and positive way. Through carefully controlled coordination with teachers, ACE provides the impetus for youth to learn about the past and rewards their achievement with genuine ancient coins that they can own and treasure for a life time. During the 2003/4 season, some 107 schools and academic organizations took part in the ACE program and its affiliated projects, seminars, etc.

The goals of ACE and of ACCG in respect to education are very similar and it is only natural that there should be a symbiotic relationship between the two organizations. With the decision of the ACE Board of Directors to join ACCG as an Affiliate Member, the future of that relationship is all the more assured. The ACCG task force on Education and Youth Programs is led by Kerry K. Wetterstrom, who will work with ACE to identify programs or activities of mutual interest. Scott Uhrick, ACE Director, has been named as the coordinator to work with Mr. Wetterstrom.
