“Conflict and Courage: Money and the Military” will be the theme for the 94th annual National Coin Week, April 16-22. The theme was provided by American Numismatic Association member John Hunt.

The ANA will host a variety of National Coin Week activities online and at the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colo.

These include an online trivia challenge. Every day from April 18-22, a new clue will be released on Participants submit their answers online for a chance to win a 2017 one-tenth ounce gold proof coin and other prizes.

There is also the annual coin club trivia challenge, where ANA member clubs test their numismatic knowledge and compete for prizes.

An open house will be held at the Money Museum in Colorado Springs on April 22, which will include free admission, activities for children and adults, and the minting of the 2017 National Coin Week medallette in the museum’s Mini-Mint.
