Members encouraged to take advantage of current price point

American Numismatic Association (ANA) members have until April 1 to take advantage of the current School of Numismatic Diploma Program price, after which the cost to enroll in the program will be $499, a $24 increase from the current price of $475. The price change reflects increased printing costs.

The School of Numismatics Diploma Program provides individuals the opportunity to obtain a “Numismatic Scholar” certificate by completing a series of correspondence courses, hands-on seminars or a combination of the two. Those who attend acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to appreciate and enjoy the hobby of numismatics.

Requirements for the Diploma Program consist of registration, the completion of six correspondence courses and a 200-question, closed-book final exam. Students should be able to complete the program within two years and successfully pass all individual tests for each correspondence course before applying to take the final exam.

ANA members have the option to take the complete Diploma Program or sign up for individual courses. The current prices of the courses and their increases are as follows:
