Welcome to The Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists
The Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) is a non-profit educational state organization founded in 1978. It is an association consisting of individuals and coin clubs throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States. PAN is a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association. The association is dedicated to promoting the hobby of coin collecting through coin shows, lectures, seminars, a published journal, and an electronic newsletter.
PAN membership is open to any individual or club interested in the study and collection of coins, currency, medals, tokens, and related material. The cost is $12 per calendar year. You are able to receive our journal, The Clarion published three times per year and the PANeNEWS, our free electronic newsletter.
Numismatic Book Dealer and PAN Charter Member, John Burns passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in his sleep Saturday early morning January 11th, 2014 while attending the FUN Show in Orlando, Florida. He had no close living relatives. This memorial fund was created to have his remains returned to Pennsylvania for a respectful ceremony and to move forward with his estate until such time that his book inventory and belongings can be sold to retire his debts. When his estate is settled the memorial fund will be repaid and the money will be used to further numismatic education. One of the fund goals is to create the Burns Numismatic Reference Library that would be set up for collectors to use during coin shows. It would be a gathering place to learn and share numismatic knowledge. Reference books would remain on the show floor and would not be for sale. John's passion was books and knowledge. This physical remembrance would keep that passion alive and add another educational dimemsion to coin shows. We would begin at the PAN shows and with enough funding be able to set it up at the many shows that John Burns traveled to and "held his numismatic court" in that unique way that so many have experienced. Any amount of money no matter how small will move this idea forward. We are in anticipation of your help.
The PAN Coin Shows and Conventions occur every spring in early May and every fall in late October at the Monroeville Convention Center, 209 Mall Blvd, Monroeville, PA 15146. There are more than 130 tables and 90 dealers eager to buy, sell, or trade coins, paper money, tokens, medals, gold, silver, and bullion. It is a free admission and parking event.
PAN offers a very active kids program as part of the coin show. Children under 18 years of age learn about rare coins through talks, filling date folders, giveaways, and a kids auction using PAN Dollars that are earned and provided. The program is presented on Saturdays during the coin show and convention and is family friendly with a very positive environment for learning and fun! It is more than a coin show. It is an experiance!
