Tonight, I received an email letter from the American Numismatic Association announcing a new dues structure. The new fee structure will introduce a Basic membership tier that will include online-only delivery of The Numismatist for $28 per year—a reduction of $8 from the current membership fee. The Regular membership tier will be $46 per year, an increase of $10, will include having The Numismatist mailed. According to the ANA, “Members in both tiers will otherwise receive the same ANA benefits including the privilege of submitting coins and paper money directly for grading and conservation services to Numismatic Guaranty Corp., Paper Money Guaranty and Numismatic Conservation Services and full use of the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library.”

In addition to the membership changes, non-members will be charged for admission to the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum and Dwight N. Manley Library at the ANA Headquarters in Colorado Springs as well as admission fees to attend both the National Money Show and the World’s Fair of Money. Members will continue to receive free admission.

The following is the new dues structure included in the note:
