Collectors who have been on the fence about joining the American Numismatic Association (ANA) — perhaps even collectors from Canada, such as yourself — now have another good reason to sign up.
The ANA is offering a limited-edition Mint State (MS)-69 American Silver Eagle for new members who join at the association’s platinum level. The Silver Eagle premium, specially labeled by the Numismatic Guaranty Corp. (NGC) for the ANA’s 125th anniversary, is also available to current members who renew for an additional three years.
Only 2,500 of these encapsulated MS-69 Silver Eagles commemorating the ANA’s 125th anniversary will be issued.
Another limited-edition 125th anniversary coin — this a MS-70 NGC specimen — is also available with a new ANA life membership, which will run you between $600 and $1,200 depending on your age and subscription options. Only 250 of these MS-70 specimens will be issued, making it a sought-after collectible.
“The ANA is celebrating 125 years of numismatic education, camaraderie, and promotion of the hobby,” said ANA President Jeff Garrett. “We hope our 2016 Silver Eagle membership campaign will entice new collectors to discover what the ANA has to offer, and serve as a gesture of appreciation to our loyal members.”
