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.
Our popular Rare Coin Basics Lecture will be offered again at the Fall Coin Show. It has been very well attended at previous shows. The talk is designed to help those that are just starting out in numismatics it is also a good refresher for those seasoned numismatists. It will be presented by PAN Life Member 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.
