Richard Jewell, editor of the PAN journal, The Clarion, hosts the PAN Lecture Series. The topics are numismatic and range from very basic information about rare coins and collecting to specific areas of interest.
Our speakers are considered by their peers to be experts in their specialized field of interest. The lectures are free and open to the public and are followed by a question and answer segment or interactive discussion. They occur on Fridays and Saturdays during the PAN Coin Show and Conventions each spring and fall.
Some of our guest speakers over the years have included noted numismatic authors, coin designers, US Mint chief engravers, and prominent national dealers in rare coins.
UPDATE 9/23/16 – The PAN Fall Coin Show & Convention has a great line up of speakers scheduled: U.S. Mint 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti will be the PAN Banquet Speaker on Friday evening October 28th at the Lemont Restaurant, Pittsburgh, PA. John will also be on the PAN Show bourse floor, Friday October 28th, for a book signing of his popular American Silver Eagles: A Guide to the U.S. Bullion Coin Program. He will also sign any items that you would bring to the show. A 2016 American Silver Eagle with his autograph seems like a good choice in light of the 30th anniversary this year.
PAN Lecture Series Speakers: Dennis Tucker, Douglas Mudd, Cliff Mishler
Our Rare Coin Basics Lecture will be offered again at the Fall Show. It was very popular and well attended at the last Spring Show. It is designed to help those that are just starting in numismatics. It will be presented by Pat McBride, along with a few PAN board members.
At times your interest in coins may take you off the main road of what you like to collect and learn about. Let us help you along that unfamiliar road. You may find our PAN Lecture Series to be an interesting journey.
