ANA Money Museum to host exclusive program for EAC members

The American Numismatic Association will host a special program May 2 in Colorado Springs, Colo., at the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum exclusively for attendees of the 2014 Early American Coppers Convention.

The EAC Convention will be held in Colorado Springs at the Doubletree Hotel from May 1 to 4.

EAC members will get to participate in a private show-and-tell session with Money Museum Curator Douglas Mudd as well as explore the museum’s three galleries and the Mini-Mint, where a special token will be minted for EAC attendees.

“Having the EAC convention in Colorado Springs this year is exciting,” Mudd said. “It has provided a great opportunity for EAC members to get a glimpse of the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum’s holdings of early American copper coins.”

The Money Museum will also show one of its popular traveling exhibits, “Money in Early America,” at the convention.

Bourse floor hours at the Doubletree are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain Time on Friday and Saturday, May 2 to 3, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 4. Admission is free. Other presentations scheduled for the conference include:
