Another great year! 2017 was another great year for the PNNA, with the usual conventions in Tukwila and Portland, plus other activities, and a special gift received!

PNNA receives Eric P. Newman Society Gift! The PNNA was pleased to be one of over 40 numismatic organizations selected to receive a special one-time gift from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES). Newman, who passed away in November 2017 at the age of 106, was active in many numismatic societies throughout his long collecting career and understood the value of working with fellow collectors and researchers in order to advance the science of numismatics.

See the PNNA’s letter to the EPNNES acknowledging and thanking them for their gift.
