ANA 116th Anniversary Convention a summertime hit
August 14, 2007

I have just returned from the 116th Anniversary Convention in Milwaukee. It was a hit from many viewpoints.

For U.S. Collectors, the Mint brought the 10 special gold Sacagawea Dollar Coins which were struck and sent into space on a shuttle.

The Bureau of Engraving and printing brought their exhibit of high denomination bills, a uncut sheet of the 100,000 dollar notes are a treat, but also included bonds of 100,000,000 and 500,000,000 dollars!

About 15 world mints has representation. The Royal Mint brought their new Boy Scout Centennial coins, and the Royal Canadian Mint in attendance with their 220 pound, 1 million dollar gold coin. It has to be extracted from the traveling case by an automobile engine hoist!

Krause Publications was well represented too, with introduction of numismaster.com, the Standard Catalog of World Coins on the net, and a three-DVD set of the three Standard Catalogs spanning, 1801-present.

My fellow KP staff member David Harper was recognized with the Burnett Anderson award presented for lifetime achevement in writing, and I was recognized by the Numismatic Literary Guild for the efforts on the 25th edition of the Standard Catalog of U.S. Paper Money, KP's first full color U.S. paper money book.
