The annexation of the South African state, Transvaal, by Great Britain caused the ?rst Anglo-Boer War of 1880-1881. The Boers won and the Pretoria Convention of 1881 restored full independence to the territory. The discovery of gold at Barerton in 1883, and three years later at Witwatersrand, caused the usual in?ux of population. Trade and internal commercial activity expanded overnight, leading to the cry for local coinage. President Kruger, recognizing the need, granted a banking concession to the National Bank of the South Africa Republic, imposing on its concessionaires the obligation to establish a mint. This presentation focuses on the coins produced by this republic from 1892 to 1902 when it fell to the British via the 2nd Anglo-Boer War. Lecture & slides. Speaker(s): Al Baber.

Do you sometimes wonder how other speakers communicate in such a logical, persuasive and entertaining fashion?

Sam Deep, a management trainer and numismatist, has distilled, expressly for the Numismatic Theater, what is normally a one-day public speaking program into the most essential principles of successful numismatic presentations.

In January 1989 three 1927 ?ve-cent pieces were purchased at a coin show. All three turned out to be specimen coins, perhaps proofs. All three were sold to coin dealers who still own the pieces. The signi?cance of these coins is that no proofs of regular issues were struck of?cially between 1916 and 1936. After examining all three coins, the speaker also concurs that these pieces were specially struck proofs. Walter Breen examined one piece and called it a proof. The purpose of this talk is to examine all known physical and documentary evidence regarding these coins. Speaker(s): Mark Van Winkle.
Margo Russell talks about the collection of coins at the American Numismatic Society. Speaker(s): Margo Russell.

Since 1964 when Leonard J. Ratzman's article, "The Buffalo Nickel, a 50-Year-Old Mystery," appeared in the Whitman Numismatic Journal supporting Chief John Big Tree, a Seneca Indian, as one of the three models of the obverse of James Earle Fraser's Indian Head nickel design, numismatic writers and collectors have been misled. Bob Van Ryzin shows that, when Fraser ?nally recalled the name of the third model, he named Chief Adoeette, a Kiowa, whose name translates as "Big Tree." He also discusses Chief Two Guns White Calf, a Blackfoot, who, in the late 1920's and early 1930's, was thought to have been the third model as well as other interesting stories. Speaker(s): Robert Van Ryzin.

Throughout the centuries, in?ation has destroyed currencies and caused the disappearance of many coins, from the Byzantine follic to the Carolingian silver penny. Mr. Kleeberg, curator of modern coins and currency for the American Numismatic Society (ANS), surveys the ?eld of modern coinage (i.e., post-1552), showing how coins and paper money re?ect the great in?ations of the period, including: the German "Kipper and Wipperzeit" of 1619-1623; the in?ation during the Seven Years Wars under Frederick the Great; the in?ation in North America under the Continental Currency; the assignats in France; the troubles with paper money in the 19th-century Austria; and the hyperin?ations in Germany in 1923 and in Hungary in 1946. Lecture with slides. Speaker(s): John M. Kleeberg.
Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson (1758-1805) was tragic the hero of Trafalgar and a legend in his own time.

With the disintegration of the Great Mughal Empire in India during the 18th century, various princelings, provincial governors and local chiefs assumed hegemony over their territories. The British permitted these "Native Princes" to retain their various titles. These princes created a bewildering variety of medals, decorations and badges to award allies, family members and subordinates for loyalty or faithful service. Noted researcher of Indian numismatics, William Spengler, sheds some light on this basically uncatalogued realm in this fascinating talk. Lecture with slides. Speaker(s): William F. Spengler.

Bob Robbins, an ex-history teacher, tells the story of ancient times through coins with plenty of anecdotes about the famous personalities that appear on ancient coins.

Speaker(s): Bob Robbins.
Many times in U. S. history has the American public said "no" to any change in coinage. Introduction of a new denomination , medal or artistic style has received negative reviews from the public, like the Susan B. Anthony dollar, introduced in 1979. This attitude concerning coinage was not a novel one. Almost two hundred years before, there had been protests about the ?rst Mint designs. Likewise, in the mid-19th century, cartoons lambasted the innovations of Mint Engraver James B. Longacre. Almost every change has caused waves of some sort. Such reactions are discussed in light of the history and taste of the time which formulates such perceptions and molds public opinion. Lecture with slides. Speaker(s): Cory Gillilland.
This is an interesting discourse on the charms and amulets of the Orient. Many problems are brought to light. Centuries-old China has produced a myriad of numismatic items that fail to offer any explanation to the Western world. This leads to confusion and a lack of interest in what can be a spellbinding area of our hobby. Join Ray in a journey about what the late Arthur Braddan Coole categorized as "Fu Lu." It leaves you with more questions than answers, but may open a new and fascinating door for your collecting interest. Lecture with slides. Speaker(s): Ray Mah.
