First NNP Symposium seminars online

More than 40 virtual seminars presented via Zoom during the recent Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) Symposium are now available online—for free.

The event was held on Aug. 28-30 and drew more than 1,000 registrants.

“These last three days were the closest I’ve come to having a coin convention experience since before the coronavirus hit,” reads one review posted to the event website.

Among the best-attended seminars was an hour-long session led by Greg Rohan, president of the U.S.-based Heritage Auctions, who discussed COVID-19’s impact on the numismatic market.

Florida’s Matthew Tavory, a grader with Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, and Michigan’s Isaiah Hagemen, author of the 2018 book The Sample Slab, also hosted an hour-long presentation. The co-hosts spoke on the detection of counterfeit slabs.

The Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS), a specialty club for collectors of rare numismatic books, periodicals, auction catalogues and related ephemera, also hosted its annual meeting virtually during the NNP Symposium. Founded in 1979, the NBS publishes the weekly E-Sylum and the quarterly Asylum, the latest edition of which features an article entitled “Canadian Numismatic Bibliography: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” by Darryl Atchison, a Fellow of the Canadian Numismatic Research Society.

The NNP Symposium – the first of what’s to be an annual event – was sponsored by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, which also funds the NNP.
