The Central States Numismatic Society renewed its commitment to the Industry Council for Tangible Assets in April by giving $2,167 – $1 for each member – to the group at its 79th Anniversary Convention.
CSNS President Mitch Ernst said, “As the leading hobby organization in the Midwest, Central States feels a deep responsibility to the collector community to support ICTA in its fight to remove burdensome sales taxes on numismatic and bullion items, combat counterfeiting and educate the public.”
Convention Chairman Kevin Foley said, “This organization is at the forefront of defending the interests of the entire numismatic community.”
Thirty-seven states now do not charge sales taxes on bullion and numismatic material. ICTA hopes to add Tennessee to the list next year after three years of work.
