The Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists and PAN Secretary, Patrick McBride (Benjamin Franklin re-enactor) have created a GoFundMe page to raise money to bring renowned Abraham Lincoln actor, Dennis Boggs, to the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money to be held at the Stephens Convention Center, in Rosemont (Chicago), IL on August 10 – 14, 2021. The money generated will cover Dennis’ fee, airfare, hotel stay, etc. Between GoFundMe and private donations, we have raised $2,300. Our goal is to raise $4,000.
Lincoln and Franklin have appeared together previously charming the young and old alike with their wit, humor and historical tales. They have together attended the Florida United Numismatists (FUN) convention in January of 2020 and the last ANA World’s Fair of Money, Chicago IL, in August of 2019. Many dealers, vendors, and attendees enjoyed posing for photos with these grand historical figures, but most importantly, the children whose eyes lit up and tongues tied in the presence of Mr. Lincoln www.MeetMrLincoln.comor Dr. Franklin www.FranklinAlive.com was priceless. Imagine being 10 years old and able to tell your teacher that you met President Lincoln or Dr. Franklin or BOTH! What is a more wonderful gift than giving to our children the desire to learn through living history? Young collectors are the future of the coin business, and we encourage you make a donation.
Small amounts are encouraged. Ten dollars each from 200 donors will easily reach our goal. Please consider a $5 Lincoln note or a $100 Franklin note to get these engaging characters to Rosemont this summer. Mailed donations are also gladly accepted. All monies are deposited into our PAN Foundation 501(c)(3) account and are tax deductible. Make checks payable and mail to: PAN 1985 Lincoln Way Suite 23 #225 White Oak PA 15131

The “2021 Silver Dollar Anniversary Coinage Act” is now Law.
We will have Morgan and Peace dollars produced by the United States Mint in 2021. PAN President Tom Uram reported that the legislation passed the House, passed the Senate, received the Presidential Signature and is enacted into law. Tom and fellow CCAC member Mike Moran along with PAN have been tirelessly working to get these significant coins minted. The coins will likely be produced in the forth quarter of 2021.
