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

SFANS joins ACCG affiliates

The San Francisco Ancient Numismatic Society joins a prestigious group of collector groups in support of ACCG.

January 23, 2005

On January 8, 2005, the San Francisco Ancient Numismatic Society, one of the most prominent ancient coin collector groups in North America, applied and was accepted for Affiliate Membership in the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild. "We are very appreciative of this show of support from the San Francisco society. The members of this group are among the most knowledgeable and dedicated collectors in the U.S." said Wayne G. Sayles, Executive Director of the guild. The SFANS holds regular meetings on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 2:15 pm at Fort Mason, San Francisco. Meetings generally include a numismatic program and an informal session for discussion and trading of coins and related items. The group has co-sponsored several "Classical Numismatic Conferences" at the University of California - Berkeley along with the American Numismatic Society, The Graduate Group in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology and The Classics Department at the University. These conferences are one of the few venues in the U.S. where archaeologists have agreed to participate in a scholarly forum with private collectors. Their success provides a model upon which similar programs might be undertaken.
