Book SummaryDigital edition, courtesy of American Numismatic Society.
During the past 150 years, the American Numismatic Society has been a leader in the publication of art medals in the United States. Generally employing the finest medalists available, the Society has set an example few can match. In addition, with the exception of the United States Mint, no entity in this country can boast so long and distinguished a contribution in this area. Founded in 1858, the American Numismatic and Archaeological Society, as it was known from 1864 to 1907, believed the issuance of medals to be a part of its mission from the earliest years of its existence.
