The April 2023 NNP Symposium is nearly upon us. The schedule has been finalized.
Sponsored by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES), the entire event remains free and virtual, open to anyone to attend. New this spring, you can also attend in person at Central States.
Whether virtual or in person, join us on April 27-29 for a great group of numismatic presentations.
If you won't be attending the Central States show in Schaumburg, IL, nothing will change! Every presentation will be livestreamed on Zoom, and you'll be able to ask questions during the Q&A portion. We won't have any overlapping presentations this time, but nothing else will be different from past Symposia.
We have three special presentations this year that we're excited to highlight.
The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection by Greg Rohan
Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions, speaks on the Texas collector Harry W. Bass, Jr. and his numismatic endeavors. Bass collected widely, with specialties in U.S. gold, pattern pieces, and numismatic literature. A World War II veteran, Bass was active in oil and real estate and worked within the hobby to promote scholarship within American numismatics. He was influential in the computerization of the American Numismatic Society collection, one of the earliest such efforts in the formative days of the Internet. The Bass collection continues to draw headlines today, with the recent offering of the Bass reference sets by Heritage Auctions.
2:30 PM Central / 3:30 PM Eastern on Thursday, April 27
U.S. Mint Coin Designs and the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee by Lawrence S. Brown Jr., MD
Dr. Lawrence Brown was appointed to the Citizens Coin Advisory Committee (CCAC) by the Treasury Secretary in 2019 and was appointed in 2022 and reappointed in 2023 by the Treasury Secretary to serve as CCAC Chairperson. A lifelong coin collector since the age of 12, Dr. Brown is a physician specializing in Addiction Medicine and Public Health. Brown will speak on his experiences as CCAC Chairperson and the role of the public, the numismatic community, and the CCAC in guiding the design of American coinage.
1:00 PM Central / 2:00 PM Eastern on Thursday, April 27
Crypto, Criminals, and the Future of Money with Q&A with Rob Rodriguez & James Passin
Beginning in Fall 2021, each NNP Symposium has included a 20-30 minute feature video on an important collection, followed by a Q&A with someone associated to it. This NNP Symposium's feature video will instead focus on cryptocurrency - what it is, how it works, and what its impact has been. Feel free to view past feature videos at the bottom of the page here.
2:30 PM Central / 3:30 PM Eastern on Friday, April 28
