Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing will speak at the Atlanta ANA National Money Show in February. -Editor
Dennis Tucker, author of American Gold and Silver: U.S. Mint Collector and Investor Coins and Medals, Bicentennial to Date, will give a program on "Collecting Modern
U.S. Mint Silver and Gold Medals for Fun and Profit" at the American Numismatic Association's National Money Show on February 27, 2020, in Atlanta.
The United States Mint has produced dozens of silver and gold medals since the national Bicentennial in 1976. They include some of the most beautiful collectibles ever designed
and engraved to represent the United States. Some have been runaway best-sellers, and some have even made national headlines. Many are sought by collectors around the globe. Some
are "sleepers"—underappreciated treasures with great potential waiting to be discovered. Tucker illustrates these medals and looks at new and upcoming programs in a colorful

The presentation, part of the ANA's "Money Talks" program, will be given at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Thursday, February 27, 2020, at 10:00 a.m.
Tucker is an award-winning author, a life member of the ANA, and a past governor of the Token and Medal Society. He serves the hobby as publisher of Whitman Publishing and
numismatic specialist of the Treasury Department's Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.
In 2011 silver medals were struck in Philadelphia and West Point to remember the heroes of 9/11.
Fewer than 10,000 of the Mint's World War I Centennial silver medals for the U.S. Coast Guard were minted and sold. Yet the Coast Guard has 42,000 active-duty members, 7,500
reservists, and 30,000 auxiliary members. Will this medal become a valuable rarity?

The U.S. Mint has produced quite a number of high-quality medals in recent years. Many may be overlooked in the market today, but future generations of collectors will enjoy
them. This may be a great time to acquire some. -Editor
