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

Oxford hosts lecture series on ethics of collecting

Varied views are heard in an open forum.

October 16, 2004

Oxford University is currently hosting a series of eight weekly lectures, culminating in a workshop on the topic "Who owns objects? The ethics and legality of collecting". The question will be addressed by speakers from a variety of professional perspectives, encompassing the roles of archaeologist, curator, dealer, collector and legislator. The dealer perspective will be presented by Dr. Ursula Kampmann on November 1, 2004. The title of Dr. Kampmann's lecture is "Dealing in coins: problems and opportunities for a serious and responsible coin trade". She is a well known friend of the collector, a respected scholar and a professional numismatist. The lectures and conclusions of the workshop, scheduled for December 6, will be published at the conclusion of the program.
