Coinages in the Persian Empire
February “Money Talks” | Coinages in the Persian Empire
Join us on February 29 for the first “Money Talks” of 2020. Until a few decades ago, the Achaemenid (Persian) Empire (ca. 550–330 BC) was primarily known through Greek writers such as Herodotus. Archaeological research and publications of a wide variety of Achaemenid sources have dramatically enhanced the picture of both the Empire and its coinage in recent years. Chief Curator Peter van Alfen and Research Curator Ute Wartenberg offer a discussion of some of this new research, which considers the historical and administrative aspects of the coins, while also examining the iconography and portraiture.

For immediate release

Dr. Peter van Alfen is awarded the 2019 Burnett Anderson Memorial Award for Excellence in Numismatic Writing at the 2020 Annual Gala on January 16, 2020

On Thursday, January 16, 2020, Mark Anderson presented the 2019 Burnett Anderson Memorial Award for Excellence in Numismatic Writing to Dr. Peter van Alfen, at the Annual Gala of the American Numismatic Society.

ANS Chief Curator Dr. Peter van Alfen has served at the American Numismatic Society for nearly two decades, during which time he has written or edited a dozen award-winning books and exhibition catalogs, and has written over 70 articles. In addition he has served as editor of the ANS Magazine, as editor of the American Journal of Numismatics, and as director of the Eric P. Newman Graduate Summer Seminar in Numismatics. Initially trained as an ancient philologist and archaeologist with specializations in Nautical Archaeology and the Bronze Age, he turned to numismatics late in his graduate studies. His publications on the ancient world reflect his diverse academic background, including broader contextual studies of Mediterranean and Near Eastern fiscal, trade, and monetary systems from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine period, as well as closer studies of coinages from ancient Arabia, the Levant, Asia Minor, and Greece. In more recent years, he has devoted considerable attention as well to medallic art, publishing studies of medallic art related to the First World War, the Olympics, ophthalmology and the history of medicine, and New York City.

The Burnett Anderson Memorial Award is intended to recognize quality and integrity in numismatic wordsmithing of every kind.  The award was created by Krause Publications, the parent company of Numismatic News, World Coin News, Bank Note Reporter, and COINS magazine and named after longtime Krause correspondent and Washington Bureau representative Burnett Anderson. The medal was first given posthumously to Mr. Anderson in 1999, at the 108th anniversary convention awards banquet of the American Numismatic Association (ANA).

Before serving at Krause Publications, Mr. Anderson worked as a newspaper reporter, a foreign correspondent, and for 25 years the United States Information Agency. During his almost 20 years at Krause he wrote extensively on numismatics and other collectible areas, and his work appeared in several Krause periodicals.

In presenting the award to Dr. van Alfen, Mark Anderson, son of the late Burnett Anderson, remarked, “The Burnett Anderson Award for Excellence in Numismatic Writing is a cooperative product of three very fine but diverse institutions: the American Numismatic Association, the Numismatic Literary Guild, and the American Numismatic Society, tonight’s host. They do not always agree on everything, but for the last twenty-one years they have agreed on an outstanding author, journalist, or researcher deserving recognition of their career contributions to the numismatic field. In 2019, they agreed that Dr. Peter van Alfen should be the 21st recipient.

“My father would have strongly supported Peter’s receipt of this award, for what he has brought to numismatics, for the many activities he has stewarded in his career at the ANS, and especially for the fine scholarly product and high standards he brings to the written word.”

Today the award recognizes researchers, authors, and journalists for their career contributions to numismatics. Previous awardees include: David T. Alexander, Q. David Bowers, Kenneth E. Bressett, Thomas K. DeLorey, Beth Deisher, Paul A Gilkes, David C. Harper, Robert W. Hoge, Wayne Homren, R.W. Julian, Ursula Kampmann, Chester L. Krause, Clifford Mishler, Eric P. Newman, Donn Pearlman, Edward Reiter, Edward C. Rochette, Margo Russell, and Scott A. Travers.

The American Numismatic Society, organized in 1858 and incorporated in 1865 in New York State, operates as a research museum under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is recognized as a publicly supported organization under section 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) as confirmed on November 1, 1970.

CALL FOR PAPERS:
Coins as Social Artifacts

Organized by the Numismatics Interest Group of the Archaeological Institute of America
For the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America

January 7-10, 2021
Chicago, IL

Coins are more than just indicators of a monetized society. All the activities for which people use coins are embedded in social relations and the social aspects of their use often influence the life histories of coins. From the many socially and politically influenced decisions that are involved in the making of coins (e.g., the intentionality of types for different purposes), through manipulations and alterations that suggest functions or meanings beyond their original intended purpose (e.g., piercing, graffiti, integration into other objects), to ramifications of the findspots on our interpretation of ancient societies (e.g., ritual deposition, spatial structure of coin losses), coins play an active role in social actions of many different kinds. This session welcomes papers that explore the ways in which the archaeology of coins can illuminate the meanings and roles they played in society beyond the purely economic.

Please send an abstract of no more than 500 words to Martin Beckmann (beckmam@mcmaster.ca) by February 24, 2020, in order to allow time for anonymous peer review. Please remember to make your abstract anonymous. Papers will be 15 or 20 minutes (please specify requested time) and all presenters will have to be AIA members in good standing at the time of the meeting. Please distribute this call for papers to anyone you think may be interested in submitting a proposal.

You can bid on any item listed here by sending an email with your name, lot number, and bid amount to membership@numismatics.org. The ANS website will be updated daily with the highest current bid.
