Stack’s launches program for professional numismatists

The U.S.-based firm Stacks Bowers Galleries has announced a new one-week seminar, the Professional Numismatist Program, which will see its first session kick off from July 30-Aug. 5.

The program’s mission statement is “to provide practical tools and build professional connections for the next generation of young adult numismatists,” according to a recent statement from Stack’s, whose numismatic history spans 90 years.

Life-long collector Devin Hipp, of Virginia, will serve as the lead instructor alongside fellow numismatists Greg Roberts, Jason Carter, Matt Orsini, John Pack, Rick Ponterio, Vicken Yegparian, Peter Treglia, Aris Maragoudakis and more. Together, they will cover topics such as advanced coin grading, wholesale trading and valuation, bullion trading, cataloguing, auctioneering and world numismatics.

Stacks will fully fund the Professional Numismatist Program with all expenses – travel, lodging, food, beverages and entertainment – provided by the firm upon acceptance to the program. Stack’s may also offer paid positions and internships for “exceptional students,” according to the firm.

“If you have ever considered making your hobby your profession, here is the perfect opportunity to observe and acquire the skills necessary to be successful in this exciting field.”

Applications must be submitted by May 1.
