Hello, welcome to Numismatics with Kenny. My name is Kenny Sammut and I am a young numismatist and a volunteer District Representative as well as a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association. The American Numismatic Association or ANA for short is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect coins, paper money and related items.

I created this video for all collectors including children from 5 to 17 as well as seasoned numismatists to consider joining the ANA. There are a number of excellent benefits you will enjoy as a member and the cost to join is very reasonable.
Benefits include:

• Access to the largest lending numismatic library in the world
• Numismatic educational opportunities through the Florence Schook School of Numismatics
• Free admission to the Edward C Rochette Money Museum in Colorado Springs
• Free admission to the annual ANA National Money Show and the World’s Fair of Money
• Opportunity to attend the Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs
• Discounts on books and coin-collecting supplies from the Wizard Coin Supply
• Discounts on members-only savings on products and services from a number of well-known companies

For young members, there are several additional great benefits:
• The Dollar project where you will learn why coin collecting is such a great hobby and will have a chance to earn free coins
• The coins for A’s program. You will receive great coins for excellent report cards – just 3 A’s or more
• Participate in the Ancient Coin project and earn ancient coins
• Apply for a partial of full scholarship to attend the Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs. For me this has been a wonderful benefit as I have attended the last four summers
• Participate in the American Early Copper Coin Project. Earn awards such as early American large coins, reference books, supplies and more
• Receive YN dollars for your participation in coin related activities. These YN dollars can then be used in the monthly YN auctions or the annual online YN auction – I have received a lot of great coins with this benefit

One of the best benefits of all is a subscription to the monthly ANA’s membership magazine – The Numismatist.

You have the option of purchasing a Gold, Platinum, or Life Membership. The platinum membership includes the printed version of The Numismatist which will be mailed to you each month or the Gold membership which includes the electronic version of The Numismatist which can be read online.

Choose the best membership choice for you or your child. Discounts are offered to young collectors.

The coin collecting hobby has been a wonderful experience for me over the past eight years and I encourage everyone and especially young people to take some time to get involved in the hobby:

• Go to the bank and purchase rolls and then search them for neat finds.
• Attend a coin show
• Stop by a coin dealers store
• Join a coin club
• Share the hobby with a parent and child. My dad and I spend a great deal of time together because of coin collecting
• Most of all, get involved in the ANA and become a member – Being a member has been an important reason why my enjoyment and passion for the hobby has continued to grow.

Thank you for watching and I hope you join the ANA. Again, please find the membership link below. Print and fill out the membership form and send it directly to the ANA. If you would like more information about becoming a life member, please email me at

Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Donates $50,000 to the ANA’s Summer Seminar

Earlier this week, the American Numismatic Association announced the exciting news regarding the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society donation of $50,000. You can read the release below. As many of my readers and followers know, I have been reaching out to numismatists to request a numismatic item be donated to the 2018 ANA Summer Seminar Young Numismatist Scholarship auction. The proceeds pay for young numismatists to attend future ANA Summer Seminars (the cost of the seminar, travel, and room and board).

As you will note in the press release below, the society will match the proceeds earned during the two auctions (the YN auction is held each of the two summer seminar weeks).

If you have not donated a numismatic item for the auction and would like to, please do so by June 8, 2018 so it will arrive before the summer seminar begins. Here is a link to a printable donation form which includes the mailing address of the ANA – Click here for a printable donation form

Or, you can send me an email requesting the donation form or to ask any questions:

Proceeds earned from the sale of your donated numismatic item(s), at the auction, will now be doubly helpful!

Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Donates

$50,000 to Support ANA’s Summer Seminar Program

The Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society has donated $50,000 to support the American Numismatic Association’s Summer Seminar. The donation includes a “matching” funds campaign to match the proceeds of the Young Numismatists Summer Seminar Benefit Auctions.

The money also provides for the establishment of all-expense paid scholarships for Young Numismatists to attend the event. Titled the “Eric P. Newman Young Numismatist Scholarship Program,” the contribution will help students who otherwise may not be able to attend Summer Seminar, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Eric P. Newman, who became a member of the ANA in 1935, is widely remembered and respected for his work as an author, researcher and speaker. In 1958, Newman and his wife, Evelyn, established the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES), which is dedicated to helping fellow numismatists realize their own potential.

As an ANA Summer Seminar instructor, Newman was an advocate for the program, which seeks to equip numismatists with the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful within the numismatic community.

Held annually on the campus of Colorado College in Colorado Springs (adjacent to the ANA), Summer Seminar is a once-a-year opportunity for numismatic learning and camaraderie that offers students a varied selection of weeklong courses designed for discovery or continued study. For many students, Summer Seminar is a life-changing event; it has catapulted the careers of several of the nation’s most respected collectors, authors and dealers.

“The ANA is so grateful to the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society for their gracious donation,” said Kim Kiick, executive director of the ANA. “This donation supports the importance of numismatics and helps young collectors to grow and advance in their numismatic journeys. We welcome that support.”

The Summer Seminar Benefit Auctions are coordinated entirely by Young Numismatists – everything from acquiring auction items and cataloguing collected items, to organizing and conducting the auction.

Last year, the auctions raised $27,519. The donation from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society will double the amount raised this year by matching auction revenue dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. Anyone is allowed to bid on items. Proceeds support Young Numismatists scholarships and other seminar events. Auction items are still being accepted for the two-week event, which kicks off on June 16. For information on donating an auction item, call Amber Bradish at (719) 482-9865 or email

Andy Newman, who is the son of Eric Newman and president of the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, noted that his father was a huge supporter of young collectors. “Dad cared deeply about building knowledge and involvement in young numismatists. He loved giving numismatic badges to Boy Scouts and instructing at the ANA Summer Seminar,” he said. “He would be greatly honored by this association of his name with this fine program.”

“The support from EPNNES for Summer Seminar serves to honor Eric Newman as a distinguished and lifelong leader in the field of numismatics,” said ANA President Gary Adkins. “It also allows the ANA to continue to offer high quality resources and programs to its members, as well as enhance and grow these offerings. We’re very thankful for the support.”

The American Numismatic Association is a congressionally chartered, nonprofit educational organization dedicated to encouraging the study and collection of coins and related items. The ANA helps its 25,000 members and the public discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of instructional and outreach programs, as well as its museum, library, publications and conventions.
