2019 IAPN BOOK PRIZES AWARDED

The International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN) has announced winners of their book prize for 2019. Peter Preston-Morley provided this announcement. Congratulations to the winners and all entrants alike - publishing a numismatic book is a singular achievement requiring months or years of effort. -Editor
