The third medal in a series marking the club's hosting of the

the copper version from 2011.

the other side of the medals, inscriptions read: AMERICAN NUMISMATIC
ASSOCIATION CONVENTION and CHICAGO, followed by the appropriate year date.

medals remain available. The proceeds go toward covering the cost of
producing engraved medals suspended from a neck ribbons for every
speaker at ANA’s “Money Talks” series of education presentations.
