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

Sound like a job you'd like to have? Well maybe the one sole positive is enough. That being a sense of pride and accomplishment in the defense of a just and venerable hobby that is seriously threatened. The ACCG needs really top caliber people to launch and manage a variety of projects. Most corporations in America today would pay dearly for the kind of people that we need. We can offer nothing in a tangible sense. In fact, we can almost guarantee a negative return on investment. Fortunately for the ACCG, and the hobby of ancient coin collecting, there are among us a huge number of exceptional people with talent and expertise in diverse areas. If you have ever entertained, even briefly, the thought of community service as a "payback" for personal prosperity, this is one place that you might find the opportunity.

There are several areas where the guild needs strong self-motivated leaders to create or enhance programs that further the purposes of the ACCG as stated in our bylaws. For Example:

With the sad and unfortunate passing of Rev. Chris Connell, we are without an Affiliate Member Liaison. The ACCG has nineteen Affiliate Member clubs throughout the United States. The communication, coordination and cooperation between these Affiliate Members and the ACCG, and indeed between the Affiliate Members themselves, is a need that we are presently unable to staff effectively. The ideal Liaison would have excellent interpersonal communication skills, the ability to take a general concept and turn it into a viable program, and the ability to organize and coordinate volunteers as a workforce where required.
Another program that currently lacks top level supervision and management is the Public Affairs program. Although much has been done in the past several years, a centralized and coordinated effort in dealing with press issues and public position statements is needed.

An individual experienced in membership and development, with the ability to organize and direct a coherent guild plan with specific objectives is high on the list of personnel needs.
Also, the ACCG needs a qualified financial officer to provide fiscal management and control. Ideally, this person would be a bonded professional in the field.

If you have any of these above skills, or other skills that you think the ACCG might find useful, and you are not offended by the salary and benefits package stated above, please contact Wayne G. Sayles, ACCG Executive Director at 417-679-2142 or email If you need more information, please ask. If you have the skills but can't justify the time, there is always the Paypal donation link at the bottom of our front page.
