Tom Mulvaney sworn in as newest member of Board of Governors
Tom Mulvaney, a longtime coin photographer, rare coin buyer,
auctioneer and consultant, was sworn in as the newest member of the
American Numismatic Association Board of Governors on Jan. 9, 2015, at
the Florida United Numismatic Convention in Orlando, Florida.
Mulvaney's appointment came after board member Mike Ellis tendered
his resignation earlier in the day.
Ellis will continue as an instructor for the Florence Schook School
of Numismatics, which includes teaching at Summer Seminar and
numismatic events across the country.
Mulvaney, who has been an ANA member for 42 years, ran for a seat on
the current Board of Governors during the 2013 election but did not
receive enough votes to be elected. In accordance with ANA bylaws, the
top vote-getter who fails to win election is eligible to replace any
board member who resigns or is removed.
Mulvaney is a Life Member of the ANA, and he teaches a popular
course in digital photography at ANA Summer Seminar. He was awarded
with an honorary doctorate in numismatics in 2011. He is a past winner
of several ANA awards, including the Medal of Merit (2006),
Presidential Award (2009), Exemplary Service Award (2010) and the
Glenn Smedley Award (2011).
Professionally, Mulvaney's photo work has appeared in dozens of
reference books and catalogs, including the "Encyclopedia of U.S.
Gold Coins," where he photographed thousands of coins in the
Smithsonian's National Collection. Mulvaney's career highlight came
when he worked with legendary numismatic author David Akers for the
sale of the John Jay Pittman Collection, which realized nearly $30
million in sales over a three-year period. Two of the three catalogs
Mulvaney produced for those sales won "Catalogue of the
Year" from the Numismatic Literary Guild.
Mulvaney's term will conclude at the 2015 World's Fair of Money,
along with the rest of the current board, when a newly elected ANA
Board of Governors will begin a 2-year term.
