Central States Coin Club Forms Scholarship For Young Coin Collectors

Central States Numismatic Society is proud to announce the formation of a new scholarship for young numismatic professionals to attend the ANA’s Summer Seminar. The Emerging Young Professional Scholarship sponsored by Eagle Eye Rare Coins in Tucson, AZ, is designed to help nurture and educate young dealers and help them build a professional network through attending Summer Seminar.

As Eagle Eye Rare Coins owner, Rick Snow, said, “It is difficult to get into the coin business without the help and guidance from established dealers. I could not have begun my career in numismatics without the support of the dealer I worked for prior to starting Eagle Eye Rare Coins in 1992, Elliott Goldman. It is my hope that this scholarship will help an emerging numismatist make that leap into a professional career.”

CSNS President Mitch Ernst added, “We all have heard that YN’s are the future of the hobby. Yet, no one has thought about helping the future of the dealer side of the hobby. It is our hope that this scholarship will help fill that need.”

Applicants must be thirty years of age or younger, prove they are employed in the numismatic trade, complete and return the CSNS scholarship application prior to the deadline of January 31, 2019. Applications will be found in the J/F/M 2019 issue of CSNS’ The Centinel. However, you can also request an application by writing to Mitch Ernst P.O. Box 24559 Omaha, NE 68124. You can also request an application by email at president@centralstatesnumismaticsociety.org  Full details of and information about the scholarship can be found in the application.
