THE ANS COINAGE OF THE AMERICAS CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

Last week I asked if anyone could provide a list of the printed proceedings of the American Numismatic Society's Coinage of the Americas Conference (COAC) -Editor


David Gladfelter writes:
There have been 15 COACS for which the proceedings have been published. The publication schedule has lagged considerably in recent years, so that the proceedings for the 1999 conference (on Money of the Caribbean) was not published until 2006. The price of these publications has also increased, from $15 per volume for the first 6 years, then $25 per volume for years 7 through 14. Volume 15 had another price increase. Don’t know why the Mark Newby volume costs $125 or why it is being published ahead of the proceedings of the conferences held in 2000-2007.


James Higby kindly provided the following list of COAC Proceedings published to date. Thanks! -Editor

This list answers my other question from last week - the St. Patrick COAC was held in 2006, not 2007 as stated in the press release for the proceedings. -Editor


David Gladfelter adds:
As you know, ANS also publishes a bibliographic periodical, Numismatic Literature. It used to cost approximately $3.00 per issue. In recent years the price per issue has gone up to $40 and the print run has been substantially reduced. This reflects a conscious decision by ANS to discourage reliance on the printed version in favor of the on-line version.
