During what would have been the American Numismatic Association's (ANA) annual Summer Seminar event – June 29-July 10, the Association will instead offer free virtual courses through its new ANA eLearning Academy. Eleven courses that would have been offered during the week-long Summer Seminar will be offered in a condensed one- to two-hour online format. Courses are open to both ANA members and non-members; there is no charge to participate but preregistration is required.

Summer Seminar is a once-a-year opportunity that offers collectors a varied selection of week-long courses designed for discovery or continued study. COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 2020 event – the first time in the program's 50-plus year history. Although these online classes are not a replacement for Summer Seminar, they provide a sampling of select courses offered during the popular summer event. ANA eLearning Academy courses during this block include:
