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

Benefit Auction open for bids

The ACCG Benefit Auction is now live online and bidding is active.

August 06, 2008

With 208 lots, representing about 450 ancient coins and related objects, the ACCG Benefit Auction is off to a strong start. Spirited bidding characterized the first two days of the auction, which runs from August 4 to August 17, 2008. The sale is being hosted by VAuctions, a companion to the popular VCoins web site. Lots may be examined and bids may be executed at

Donations for this sale came from both the collector and dealer communities, with a very wide range of material. Some exceptionally rare pieces are being offered, including a bronze minima of Libius Severus, a billon tetradrachm of Severus Alexander from Alexandria and a bronze coin from Palmyra struck during the first century BC. The sale also includes many lovely silver tetradrachms struck in Greek cities during the Classical and Hellenistic periods. Roman coin collectors will be pleased to find a very nice run of imperial portrait coins in all metals.
The sale is being held without reserves or buyer's fees, which augurs well for some exceptional bargains. All proceeds of the sale go directly to the funding of ACCG programs. The guild has no employees and operates entirely through the donated resources of it members.
