Last October, Steve Woodland reviewed Serge Pelletier's new book Numismatics for Everyone. This announcement from Lighthouse Publications notes that it has now been short-listed for IAPN book of the year. Congratulations.
Pelletier's Numismatics for Everyone short-listed for International Association of
Professional Numismatists' Book of the Year Award
Serge Pelletier's Numismatics for Everyone = La numismatique pour tous has been short-
listed for the prestigious Book of the Year award of the International Association of Professional Numismatists
(IAPN). It is one of the 15-20 books that will be considered by the members of the IAPN at the upcoming general assembly in June.
Since 1982, the members of IAPN have been awarding the title of
Book of the Year to a book published on
numismatics during the previous year. Past winners include:
DELZANNO, Roberto. Sveriges Guldmynt 1512-2020.
STEVENS, Paul, The Coins of the English East India Company: Presidency Series. A Catalogue and Pricelist.
MANVILLE, H.E. Tokens of the Industrial Revolution 1787-1828.
SCHER, Stephen. The Currency of Fame. Portrait medals of the Renaissance
Copies of each book are exhibited at the Assembly so that delegates may familiarise themselves with them prior to
the vote, explained Peter Preston-Morley, Chair of the IAPN's Publication Committee.
The winning author is then
invited to receive his or her prize, a cash award, together with a winner's medal and a diploma, at a reception later
in the year.
To be short-listed for such a prestigious award is an honour in of itself, said Serge Pelletier, the author,
since the book was nominated by a member of the IAPN.
