CSNS makes changes to benefit organization

The Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS) has made several organizational updates aimed at benefiting the organization and its membership.

Based in the Midwestern United States, the CSNS updated its logo, which shows the 13 states within the region, to include the phrase “Building Collector Community.”

The group also updated the design of its quarterly magazine the Centinel, which now features a larger size, new editorial content and a new editor in Barbara Gregory, who formerly edited the Numismatist, the monthly journal of the American Numismatic Association (ANA).

CSNS Vice-President Brett Irick plays a prominent role in organized numismatics in both the United States and Canada.

Lastly, the CSNS plans to host a large convention in 2023, building on the show held this April – its first three years – following pandemic cancellations in 2020 and 2021. For next year’s 84th annual CSNS Convention, slated for April 27-29, organizers hope to expand beyond the 272 dealers and 340 booths featured on the bourse this spring.

The CSNS also has a Canadian connection in the form of Vice-President Brett Irick, who plays a prominent role in organized numismatics on both sides of the border. In Canada, he serves as the area director and club services chair of the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association and as the vice-president of the Windsor Coin Club. In the United States, he also serves as a member of the ANA’s exhibits committee.
