The free online event will be held November 2-4, 2023.
The Newman Numismatic Portal today announced that the next NNP Symposium will take place November 2-4. This is a free, online event that brings together a variety of numismatic speakers and covers a wide array of numismatic subjects. Featuring approximately 30 presentations, attendees will easily find topics of interest. This is the seventh such event, which was launched in fall of 2020 in response to the pandemic.
In the area of U.S. numismatics, the feature presentation will cover U.S. material in the cabinet of the American Numismatic Association (ANA). Beginning with the 1804 dollar and 1913 Liberty nickel, the ANA collection includes important items in multiple areas of U.S. numismatics. Doug Mudd, the ANA Curator, will be on hand to answer audience questions following this presentation.
Among other presentations, Dror Goldberg of the Open University of Israel will speak on his recently published book, Easy Money: American Puritans and the Invention of Modern Currency. Katie Ameku, Ray Feller, and Steve Feller will present on Japanese-American relocation center monies of World War II, providing a numismatic lens on internment camps of the period. Lianna Spurrier, who produces the NNP Symposium on behalf of the Newman Numismatic Portal, will speak on Japanese bar money issued from 1599 to 1869. Presentation slots remain open, and interested speakers are encouraged to contact the NNP Symposium at https://nnpsymposium.org/for-presenters.
