In celebration of National Coin Week (NationalCoinWeek.org), April 18-24, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) is offering free online eLearning Academy webinars that tie into the theme of this year's event, "Money, Big & BOLD." Sponsored by the nonprofit ANA, National Coin Week focuses on the historical, cultural, artistic and economic importance of money as well as the enjoyment of coin and paper money collecting.

The theme of the 98th annual event was inspired by the Morgan dollar, Peace dollar and Eisenhower dollar, all of which have milestone anniversaries in 2021. The daily, one-hour courses begin at 5 p.m. MDT and include:

Registration for the online webinars, which are free and open to the public, can be made at info.money.org/ncw-webinars. The webinars are made possible by Greysheet, the Official ANA eLearning Academy Partner.

"The designs, denominations and metallic content of coins can tell us a great deal about civilizations, past and present, such as famous and not-so-famous political and historical figures, important events and landmarks," explained Andy Dickes, National Coin Week coordinator. "Every coin or piece of paper money in your pocket, wallet or purse has a story to tell."
