As I continue to catch up from my week off, I am going through my email and found a note from the American Numismatic Association saying that the deadline for submitting your theme idea for 2008 National Coin Week, April 20-26, is this Sunday. The ANA is looking for themes that focus on unity around the world and the role children and numismatics play in achieving this unity. The ANA is offering a one-half ounce gold American Eagle proof coin for the winning theme. Second place will receive a one-quarter ounce gold American Eagle proof coin. The third place selection will receive a one-tenth ounce gold American Eagle proof coin.
If you are an ANA member and interested in participating, send your theme idea, description of why it should be chosen, and ANA number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
