Eric P. Newman Medal

Eric P. Newman, America’s foremost numismatist, collector, and scholar celebrated his 100th birthday on May 25, 2011. In his honor and in recognition of his numerous achievements, the American Numismatic Society commissioned Philadelphia artist Amy Kann to create a bas relief portrait of Mr. Newman. At his birthday celebration held in NYC, ANS Chairman of the Board, Kenneth L. Edlow, presented Mr. Newman with the framed relief portrait.

The two-sided limited edition medal will utilize the design of the original 7.75 x 9.875 inch bas relief portrait of Mr. Newman on the front. The reverse depicts Mr. Newman seated and reading at a desk. The Newman medal will be struck in both bronze and silver after the subscription closes on January 13, 2012.
