    Numismatic Notables: Beth Deisher

    This episode features a wide ranging discussion with Beth Deisher, Coin World editor from 1985-2012. From her time in Iran as a member of the International Farm Youth Exchange to working against counterfeiters in her “retirement,” Deisher offers opinions on the evolution of coin collecting and the related media coverage over the last generation. Deisher played an important role as an advocate for coin collectors in Washington, D.C., and was instrumental in the formation of the States Quarters program and the Citizens Coin Advisory Committee. Deisher has had an insider’s view of the legislative activity related to the U.S. Mint and reveals tidbits such as Donna Pope’s crash course in numismatics upon her appointment as Mint Director in 1981.
