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

CNG, Amphora, Berk Pledge Support at NYINC

The ACCG is proud to announce receipt of the first pledges of support at the Benefactor level.

January 24, 2005

At the 2005 New York International Numismatic Convention, held at the world famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Mid-town Manhattan on January 13-16, three prominent numismatic firms pledged support of the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild at the Benefactor level. These leaders in supporting the goals of the ACCG include Classical Numismatic Group of Lancaster, PA and London, England; Amphora Coins (David Hendin) of Nyack, NY; and Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. of Chicago, IL. The membership category of Benefactor represents a commitment of $5,000 and is a lifetime designation. In addition to the standard benefits of ACCG membership which include voting privileges and receipt of Guild newsletters, Benefactors are extended the courtesy of a prominent link on the ACCG web site. Benefactors also receive personal updates on ACCG activities from the guild’s Executive Director.

The Board of Directors of NYINC graciously provided facilities for a meeting of the Board of Directors of the ACCG and for a public presentation outlining guild activities and goals both past and future. At the ACCG Board meeting, a guild Code of Ethics was approved by unanimous vote in the affirmative (see related story on this site). The public session was well attended by collectors and professional numismatists, including several concerned and supportive friends from the international community. Wayne G. Sayles, Executive Director of the ACCG thanked those in attendance, commenting that “Support of the ACCG from numismatists abroad is heartwarming and reflects in large measure the fact that collectors in many countries have already experienced and are empathetic with the plight of collectors in America. Their support exemplifies and reinforces the long tradtion of cooperation and friendship that bonds all collectors of ancient coins as part of a truly global fraternity.”

The next public meeting of the ACCG will be held in Kansas City at the upcoming convention of the American Numismatic Association.
