2020 Mid-Year Appeal

May 2020

Dear Friend,

All of us at the ANS are profoundly appreciative of your steadfast dedication to this wonderful institution, and never more so than in the strange spring of 2020.

This time of year, we traditionally ask you for your financial support. Although the entire ANS staff has been working remotely since the middle of March, we are actually busier than ever. Much of our collaborative effort has been going toward making available to our members and the public at large an unprecedented amount of major new online content. We have also been focusing on the critically important task of updating and improving the collection database.

Among the highlights of the Society’s recent online efforts are these:

And these are just some of the activities going on right now, along with our publications of books and journals.

We are fortunate to benefit from a long and distinguished history, dating back 162 years, and I am certain that we are building a thriving resource for many generations of numismatists, scholars, and enthusiasts to come. We pride ourselves on having been able to retain our entire staff during this crisis. Working together, we are demonstrating that our revered history can coexist with resilience, innovation, and dynamism.

But we cannot continue our hard-won success without your support. So please send us your donation. No matter what its size, it will help us stay strong for the future.

I look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, I hope you and your family and friends are keeping safe, and well.

With the very best wishes and much gratitude,


Dr. Gilles Bransbourg
Executive Director
