DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Board of Directors for Numismatics International (NI) announced today that it will be conducting a three-day seminar in June with the theme of World Coins on Their Own Terms. The Numismatics International Seminar will be held June 7-9, 2013 and will feature workshop sessions covering topics such as:

“The Numismatics International Seminar will be an opportunity for coin collectors at all levels to expand and share their expertise, drawing on the resources of the NI Library and Reference Collection, and to enjoy the company of others who share similar interests”

  • Identification and Attribution: using examples from the NI reference collections;
  • Detection of Counterfeits: a skill no coin collector can afford to be without;
  • Grading Standards and Techniques relevant to diverse world issues; and
  • Buying and Selling, with a live auction of lots submitted by participants.

“One of the remarkable things about numismatics – which is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects – is that specialized knowledge is not confined to tenured academics or big-time dealers,” said Carl Young, NI president. “Important scholarship is performed, and discoveries are made, as often as not by ordinary hobbyist coin collectors who have made a special study of some phase of the subject.”

The Numismatics International Seminar will be held at the Courtyard Dallas DFW Airport North/Irving, 4949 Regent Boulevard, Irving, TX 75063. The cost is $150 for NI members, $250 for all others, until May 15 on a space-available basis.
