ANA Money Museum to Deaccess Bulk Items from Collection.


The American Numismatic Association’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum will dispose of low-value bulk coins that have accumulated in the museum's vaults during the last 50 years. Stack’s Bowers Galleries will feature a number of these deaccessioned items in their Collections & Accumulations Auction, which will take place on Monday, Sept. 28, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. PST. Among these items are worn or damaged common-date U.S. Mint issues, bulk world coins, and other pieces already represented in the Museum’s core collection.


The goal is to improve storage and access while making space in the vaults for future objects that fulfill the Museum’s educational plan. Proceeds raised through the sale of these items will be used to support the collections, acquisitions and care program. This process will facilitate the ANA’s overall mission to represent the full range of numismatic history.


Lot viewing will be conducted at the Stack’s Bowers Galleries offices in Irvine, Calif. on Sept.15-18 & 21-25, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PST. A second viewing will take place prior to the auction on Monday, Sept. 28, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. PST.


Lot pick up will be conducted in the Irvine, Calif. offices on Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2015 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. PST.
