January 1, 2001 – The PNNA welcomed the official start of the 3rd millennium A.D. For over 2,500 years humankind has used the medium of medallic art both for money and to commemorate important persons, places and events. There is every reason to believe that our fascination with using and collecting numismatic items – medallic or otherwise – will continue well into the 3rd millennium. Join us and share in the enjoyment of this great hobby!
