Medal Collectors of America

Are you seeking to add a new specialty to your collecting activity? Exploring different areas is always fun to do. Further, if you are starting from scratch when you do this, your checkbook will not suffer as many items are expensive when you are just beginning in a new field. And if there are rarities in the field, they can wait until later.

One collecting area that offers a wide variety of both items and prices is medals. And, now check this out from the website of the Medal Collectors of America:

“Medal Collectors of America was founded in 1998 as a club dedicated to the study and collection of artistic and historical medals. Our goal is to encourage research and publication in the medal field, while bringing together all who are interested, through meetings, publications, and other activities. Our magazine, The MCA Advisory, is published quarterly in both print and electronic versions, and we encourage submissions from both newcomers and experienced researchers. We hold two meetings a year, which are open to all, featuring guest speakers on a wide range of topics relating to medal collecting. One is held in August in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association convention, and the second in January in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic convention. One of the greatest benefits to membership is the opportunity to acquire our annual medal, which is struck in very limited quantities and available only to members.”

The latest annual production is a wonderful medal by Heidi Wastweet. I ordered one and can hardly wait to get it.

The cost is only $57 for an annual membership. I invite you to join me as a member. Check the website at https://www.medalcollectors.org!
