Original CCN consultant top vote-getter in ANA election

Former CCN consultant and past president of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Clifford Mishler received the most votes of seven governors recently elected to the ANA’s board.

Also a former CEO of Krause Publications, a prominent publishing firm created by CCN founder and late Wisconsinite Chet Krause, Mishler is a long-time friend and supporter of the Canadian numismatic community; in fact, Mishler spoke at the opening ceremony of last year’s Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA) Convention, and in 2014, he received the RCNA President’s Award for his widespread promotion of the hobby.

Mishler is a resident of Iola, Wisc., where Krause also lived before his death in 2016.

Retired U.S. Army Colonel and past consultant for the U.S. Secret Service Steven Ellsworth was recently elected as the ANA’s 61st president.


In the recent ANA election for the 2019-21 term, voting members also chose retired U.S. Army Colonel and past consultant for the U.S. Secret Service Steven Ellsworth as their 61st president.

Ellsworth was the official ANA delegate at last year’s RCNA Convention and spoke on numismatic security (“Retired U.S. Army colonel offers a plan on numismatic security,” CCN Vol. 56 #16).

The new board will be sworn in at the annual ANA Banquet this August during the World’s Fair of Money in Illinois.
