PNG offers online multimedia classes

Extensive multi-media classes are now available online to collectors and dealers via the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG).

Developed by Karl Newman in conjunction with the University of Rare Coins and PNG’s Edward C. Milas School of Numismatics, the classes include two levels. The “Level 100” course provides broad-based basic knowledge about numismatics (topics include purchasing, selling, marketing and auctions, third-party certification, coin shows and numismatic organizations and industry resources), and the “Level 200” course highlights metallurgy and technology in the science of numismatics, the minting process and errors and the history of monetary systems and development of coining.

These online classes were originally created only for participants in PNG’s internship mentoring program.

“We are making these available online to anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of numismatics, from the minting process to the business of buying and selling coins,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

The enrolment fee is $300 US with pricing including both classes. Students who pass both levels receive certificates of completion.
