Our sister organization Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) is accepting submissions for their annual awards competition. NLG Executive Director Patrick Ian Perez sent along this announcement. If you're not already a member, now's a great time to join, especially if you've published a work you'd like considered for this year's awards. Good luck to all!
Much has occurred over the past eight months in the background of the NLG. This message is to officially announce the opening of the 2023 NLG Awards submission period. The Board has made some minor updates to the awards this year.
We sadly lost our previous Awards Coordinator, David W. Lange in January and we thought it appropriate, due to David's outstanding reputation as a researcher and numismatic scholar, to rename the Book of the Year Award to the David W. Lange Memorial Book of the Year Award.
We also have created the David Lisot Memorial Video Award by combining the two previous video categories. David was a mainstay at major coin shows and events, documenting them and conducting interviews for many years. His footage is an essential part of numismatic history.
Importantly, Life Member John Albanese of CAC and CACG has stepped up to serve as the new Awards Coordinator. The submission deadline for entries is Monday, June 12, 2023. Submissions can be sent to:
1420 State Highway 206
Bedminster, NJ 07921
We are excited to announce The NLG Awards Luncheon will be Thursday, August 10th in Room 401 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, taking place during the American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We strongly encourage all members who will be at the WFOM to attend the awards lunch. Last year's event was wonderful, with many numismatic luminaries in attendance. It was well attended but there is always room for more! Please send an RSVP email to
