(February 24, 2022) Launched in August 2020, the Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) Symposium brings together a diverse selection of numismatic presentations into a concentrated, three-day, Zoom-based format. Previous Symposia featured talks on a variety of topics including U.S. federal coinage, tokens and medals, paper money, and ancient and world numismatics. The complete set of nearly a hundred presentations from previous events, produced by Lianna Spurrier of Numismatic Marketing, are available for viewing at https://nnp.wustl.edu/library/multimediadetail/539070.

Newman Portal is pleased to announce the fourth NNP Symposium, which will take place via Zoom on April 8-10. While the course of the COVID pandemic remains unpredictable, online events have proven a reliable way of sharing numismatic knowledge across a widespread audience. Even more so, many numismatic organizations are seeing increased member engagement as in-person events are opened to virtual audiences.

Viewers from previous Symposia noted “It's a good opportunity for those who cannot travel to an American Numismatic Association convention or a major show where presentations may be held” and “Thank you for the fantastic job on the Symposium. I attended as many as I possibly could and will finish the ones I missed as soon as they are posted.”

The NNP Symposium invites individual presenters and numismatic organizations to register for a Symposium meeting slot. Inquires may be sent to https://nnpsymposium.org/for-presenters . Dealers are welcome to participate and might use this time to introduce their business or present selected inventory highlights. The NNP Symposium staff will ensure smooth delivery of all content by moderating each session and providing Zoom training to attendees and presenters prior to the event.

A sampling of committed speakers as of press time includes Chris McDowell, editor of the Journal of Early American Numismatics, Wayne Homren, editor of the E-Sylum, and Jesse Kraft, Assistant Curator of American Numismatics at the American Numismatic Society. The feature presentation will be a behind-the-scenes look at the Dell Loy Hansen collection, one of the greatest collections of U.S. coins ever formed, and still growing.

NNP Symposium attendees should register at https://nnpsymposium.org and will receive periodic updates including overall schedule and meeting links. Symposium registration is free, in keeping with the NNP philosophy of providing numismatic information on a free-and-forever basis.
