Canadian Numismatic Advisory Board accepting applications

Whitman Publishing is accepting applications for appointment to its Canadian Numismatic Advisory Board (CNAB).

Board members are appointed for two-year terms, and membership is open to professional numismatists, hobbyists or anyone with an interest in Canadian numismatics—this includes collectors, dealers, historians, researchers, students, museum curators, coin designers and more.

The application deadline is Feb. 1.

The CNAB was established to advise the publisher and editors of Whitman Publishing on topics relating to Canadian coins and tokens, medals, paper currency, and related numismatic items. These include colonial and provincial coinage; bank and trade tokens; money of the French regime; private and semi-regal tokens; pre-decimal and decimal coinage of the 1800s; British colonial items, circulating and otherwise; patterns; bullion coins; error coins; coinage sets; and circulating issues of the Dominion of Canada from its formation in 1867 to date.

The board also advises on grading, auction records, photography, authentication, third-party certification, the Royal Mint and other related topics.


Candidates should have an interest in Canadian history as well as “demonstrable experience” in the study of Canadian numismatics; a history of honourable professional and personal conduct; and successful standing in their communities, according to a statement issued by Whitman last month.

Candidates must be free of professional, political or financial interests that could negatively affect their ability to provide impartial advice.

Board candidates are invited to submit a description of the skills, abilities, talents and credentials.

Those wishing to be considered for participation on the CNAB should submit a resume and cover letter describing their reasons for seeking appointment and qualifications for membership by email to or by mail to Dennis Tucker, Publisher, Whitman Publishing, PO Box 191884, Atlanta GA 31119.

Submissions must be postmarked no later than Feb. 1, 2019.
