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

Supreme Court denies ACCG petition for certiorari

U.S. Courts have opted not to judge actions of the Executive Branch that ACCG and others have called "extralegal".

The Supreme Court has denied the ACCG’s petition for certiorari.  The denial has no precedential impact, leaving the disposition of the test case only binding in the Fourth Circuit.  Of approximately 150 petitions for certiorari on the docket March 25th, only four were granted. 

 The ACCG will continue to contest any related forfeiture action.  The guild will also pursue other opportunities to communicate its view that American collectors should continue to enjoy collecting ancient coins as freely as other collectors world-wide do.
