The American Numismatic Association has announced a collaboration between its flagship publication, The Numismatist, and The Coin Dealer Newsletter (CDN), providing ANA members with what it calls “a reliable retail pricing tool for collectible U.S. and Early American coinage.”
Beginning in June, ANA members can access the “Collector’s Price Guide” in The Numismatist. Each monthly eight- to 10-page supplement will offer up-to-date values for a variety of U.S. coin types and denominations on a regular rotation, with early coppers, cents and nickels in June, silver in July, and gold in August, according to the ANA.
“The Numismatist is one of the great publications of our hobby and the cornerstone benefit of ANA membership,” said ANA President Jeff Garrett. “The new CDN retail price guide will make The Numismatist an indispensable resource for collectors. This partnership is one of the most important developments for the organization in many years.”
The ANA says the “Collector’s Price Guide” is intended as a hobby resource only and should be used in combination with other numismatic references as part of a practical, informed purchasing plan. CDN Publishing is solely responsible for the content of the guide.
“An online version of CPG was launched a few months ago in response to dealers who have long been frustrated by the disconnect between established Greysheet pricing and unrelated retail values that don’t reflect wholesale levels,” said CDN Publisher John Feigenbaum. “CPG values are derived from the Greysheet and move in direct reaction to the wholesale market so collectors and dealers can finally be in sync.”
“It’s a dream come true to have coin-pricing information available in The Numismatist,” said ANA Executive Director Kim Kiick. “This is a huge benefit to our members, and we are grateful to John Feigenbaum for approaching us with this opportunity.”
