John Feigenbaum new PNG executive director

Business executive and lifelong numismatist John Feigenbaum is the new executive director of the non-profit Professional Numismatists Guild ( “I can’t wait to jump in and lend my 45 years of numismatic experience to support and grow this amazing organization and honor the work of my predecessors,” said Feigenbaum. He started his new role on Aug. 1, following a transition period that began in January with Robert Brueggeman who retired on July 31 after 28 years as PNG’s leader.

Feigenbaum has been attending coin shows since the age of five and grew up among coin dealers. He and his father built a rare coin company that was one of the pioneers in the field of mail order and online auctions with custom software designed to advance the hobby.  He now is looking at ways to expand PNG while helping the hobby and numismatic marketplace.

 “PNG, unfortunately and unfairly, has long been perceived as an ‘exclusive’ organization with its doors open to only a few, powerful dealers. I want to change this perception to emphasize that we are ‘inclusive’ and want all dealers to feel welcome to apply and join. We will do this while still maintaining our rigorous code of ethics, a pledge to dealers and collectors alike that PNG members hold the highest standards in their dealings,” stated Feigenbaum. In addition to his new role, Feigenbaum is chief executive officer of CDN Publishing, the company that produces the Greysheet and other numismatic price guides and reference materials.
