about the honoree

Harvey G. Stack, Co-Chairman of the renowned Stack's, has over 60 years of numismatic and public auction expertise. The ANS Board of Trustees is pleased to honor Mr. Stack for his expertise, participation and generosity in funding many ANS programs over the decades. Mr. Stack has been a Fellow of the American Numismatic Society for nearly 30 years and a member for almost 40 years. He has donated significant numismatic materials to the ANS as well as other numismatic organizations. In 1967, Mr. Stack represented the numismatic industry before the U.S. Treasury Department and was instrumental in bringing repeal of the onerous and long-standing gold coin import regulations that had unfairly impacted coin collectors throughout the country. In 1973, he was the sole industry representative to appear before Congress advocating passage of the Hobby Protection Act. In 1976, Mr. Stack was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to the U.S. Assay Commission which had assured the integrity of the nation's coinage for nearly two centuries. He has served as an expert witness for many agencies around the world. Mr. Stack appeared before Congress during the 1990's to propose his idea for the "50 State Quarters" commemorative program.
