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

The seventh annual public meeting of the ACCG was held at the Waldorf hotel in Manhattan on Saturday, January 8, 2011.  At the top of the agenda was a presentation by Clifford Mishler, president of the American Numismatic Association, to ACCG board member and Legislative Affairs task force leader Peter K. Tompa. Mr. Mishler honored Tompa with the prestigious ANA President's award for his substantial contributions to the hobby.  Mr. Tompa has been the "pointy end of the spear" for ancient coin collector advocacy in Washington for more than a decade.  He is a founding member of the ACCG Board of Directors and a Trustee of the American Numismatic Society as well as a member and supporter of the ANA.  The ANA in recent years has become a stalwart companion in the defense of ancient coin collecting.
