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

Under the guild Bylaws, the Board is empowered to appoint a replacement to serve out Mr. Hendin's term. In a unanimous consensus, the board has approved the nomination of Tom Palmer to serve the remainder of Hendin's term and Mr. Palmer has graciously accepted. Tom will also assume the position of Treasurer held my David Hendin since the founding of the guild in 2004.

Tom Palmer has long been a collector of ancient coins and is a very active member of the numismatic community. He will be familiar to many through his recent bid for a seat on the Board of Governors of the American Numismatic Association where he polled more than 2,000 votes in an exceptionally large field. Tom's background was mentioned briefly in an article posted here in which the ACCG endorsed his recent campaign. In addition to his role as Treasurer, Tom will be working directly with ACCG Affiliate Member organizations to improve direct communications and enrich the symbiotic relationship between these groups and the ACCG.
