Our sponsors have long held the belief that there is power in education, and that the best way to pave a pathway to a brighter future for the hobby is to proliferate numismatic knowledge. To that end, we have organized the first entirely virtual numismatic event to further that mission.
The NNP Symposium is a line-up of presentations and meetings to be delivered via Zoom over a three day convention. Anyone can apply to present, and anyone can attend - all completely free of charge. Explore the menu at the top to peruse the schedule, register, or take a look at the guidelines to present in the future.
We're fully sponsored by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES), a non-profit foundation dedicated to enabling numismatic research. We're not selling anything, and all features of the NNP Symposium are freely available.
Also sponsored by EPNNES, the Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) is an open, online archive of over 40,000 numismatic journals, books, auction catalogs, and more. NNP Symposium presentations and exhibits will be available on the NNP following the Symposium.
"I believe the NNP Symposium was an incredible success. I suspect it’s done more for the hobby of numismatics than anything I can think of."
"Thanks for hosting this numismatic event. I was able to watch 19 of the sessions. All were very good, some were great. Drive time was very short, parking was free, food options were plentiful and reasonably priced, and overnight accommodations were like sleeping in my own bed."
"If it weren’t for wanting to see all of my numismatic friends in person, I’d say we could do away with the ANA convention and just have this symposium every year."
"These last three days were the closest I've come to having a coin convention experience since before the coronavirus hit."
"I just want to tell you what a fabulous event the Symposium was, as I’m sure you have heard a hundred times. It was an oasis in the COVID-19 desert — it got the coin collecting juices flowing again for those of us hunkered down waiting for the next show."
"The NNP hit a homerun with its effort. The symposium was such a success that I hope the NNP makes this an annual event."
