Last week (July 21st) there was an announcement from the ANA that affects numismatic literature buyers. The ANA's MoneyMarket shop, which offers numismatic books and supplies to collectors, is now being operated on ANA's behalf by Wizard Coin Supply. -Editor Wizard Coin Supply of Chantilly, Virginia, will take over operations of the American Numismatic Association MoneyMarket, direct mail and online store operations on an interim basis, ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd announced today.
Under a four-month interim agreement, effective July 15, Wizard will provide customer contact, fulfillment and product handling of all direct mail and online supply and book sales.
The ANA started its MoneyMarket catalog operation in 1986 and later expanded it to include an online store. Due to rising postage and printing costs, however, the ANA would have been required to invest significant amounts of money into software and other resources to stay competitive and, instead, sought an agreement with a company better prepared to efficiently run its direct mail and online store operation.
"We are very pleased that Wizard Coin Supply will take over our MoneyMarket operations," said Shepherd. "For years, our members have purchased numismatic supplies and books through MoneyMarket. We expect Wizard will be able to provide the best-possible customer service and the same – if not better – selection of merchandise. Everyone wins."
Orders can still be placed online at www.money.org/shop at MoneyMarket, which will redirect customers to the Wizard Coin Supply online store at www.WizardCoinSupply.com. ANA members also can continue to call the MoneyMarket number at 1-800—467-5725, which will transfer them to Wizard Coin Supply for sales and customer service.
"We are pleased that the ANA has chosen to work with Wizard," said Wizard owner Wayne Herndon. "We look forward to bringing our expansive product selection, exceptional customer service and competitive pricing to MoneyMarket customers."
