Join the American Numismatic Association (ANA) in celebrating two of the hobby’s titans—Mark Salzberg and Rick Montgomery, leaders of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)—at the ANA Legacy Dinner, a fundraising event to benefit the ANA Legacy Series. The event will take place at the National Money Show in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, March 9, starting at 6:00 p.m. in the Sunburst Room at the Orange County Convention Center, located at 9800 International Drive.
The Legacy Series, moderated by Barbara Gregory, editor-in-chief of The Numismatist, acquaints collectors with the legends, heroes, and icons of numismatics, celebrating their lives and contributions.
The event honors Mark Salzberg and Rick Montgomery, whose careers have significantly impacted the numismatic community through their vision, integrity, and trend-setting approaches to the hobby and the coin-grading industry.
The ticket price of $110 (ticket prices increase to $125 after February 3) includes a three-course dinner highlighted by a duo of tenderloin filet and grilled prawns, followed by the Legacy Series interview with Mark Salzberg and Rick Montgomery.
For additional information or to register for the event, contact Christie Vigil, the ANA’s membership services representative, at 719-482-9815.
The Legacy Series program was introduced in 2015. Past installments have celebrated the lives of professional numismatists Q. David Bowers, Ray Dillard, Fred Weinberg, Steve Ivy, Jim Halperin, and David Sundman. The taped interviews shed light on the accomplishments, successes and early memories of the hobby’s top luminaries. All interviews are recorded and posted to both the ANA’s YouTube channel and www.money.org.
