Usually, the International Association of Professional Numismatists organizes its General Assembly every year in a different country in the world, but last year because of the pandemic we resolved to cancel the General Assembly scheduled for Marseille in 2020. As the year 2021 has echoed the year 2020, with the pandemic still present, the Executive Committee had to organize a virtual General Assembly for the first time in the history of the association. It took place on September 11th and 12th, 2021.

Zoom session – First day

The first highlight of this IAPN G.A. was the vote for new candidates to become members of our association. This year is quite exceptional because we now have 10 new members, who are as follows:

  • AMOS Media (Mr. Rick AMOS) Associated Member.
  • CNG LLC (Mr. Mike GASVODA) Regular Member.
  • Mariano COHEN (Mr. Mariano COHEN) Regular Member.
  • HERITAGE Auctions (Mr. Cristiano BIERRENBACH) Regular Member.
  • KÖLNER MÜNZKABINETT (Mr. Christoph HEINEN) Regular Member.
  • LUGDUNUM GmbH (Mr. Jonas FLÜCK) Regular Member.
  • MDC – Monnaies de Collection (Mr. Nicolas GIMBERT) Regular Member.
  • MORUZZI Numismatica (Mr. Umberto MORUZZI) Regular Member.
  • Shanna SCHMIDT Numismatics Inc. (Mrs. Shanna SCHMIDT) Regular Member.
  • VILMAR Numismatics LLC (Dr. Constantin MARINESCU) Regular Member.

Welcome to all of them!

Other decisions were made regarding membership : Mark TELLER will become a corresponding member as of January 1st, 2022, and Eric McFADDEN was appointed Honorary President of the association for his years of service as President of the IAPN and the IBSCC (the association’s anti-counterfeiting committee).

Another highlight of our general assembly was undoubtedly the IAPN Book Prize for 2020 (the vote for 2021 was postponed till next year). This prize rewards a numismatic work published the previous year, in this case 2019. That year was abundant in worthy candidates, and it was among more than 16 books that the book by Mr. Robert DELZANNO won 1st place.

Regarding international trade, our president Daniel SEDWICK gave us a report about several new developments in the U.S., namely the application of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) measures to antiquities dealers; activities of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee (CPAC) and new Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs); and efforts to enforce the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act (CAFRA) of 2000. In Europe, we responded to the EU’s “have your say” forum for implementation of AML measures.
Other topics were debated regarding the life of our association.

The next assembly of our association in 2022 will take place in MALLORCA in Spain, organized by our Spanish members Jesus VICO SA and AUREO & CALICO S.L. at the end of May. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bviEAryMdc&ab_channel=IAPNDigital

Proposals for the following years’ General Assemblies include Marseille in France for 2023, organized by Maison PLATT, and San Francisco in the U.S. for 2024, organized by STEPHEN ALBUM Rare Coins.

12.03.2021 - Stolen Coins – March 10 – Frankfurt

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to inform you that a series of coin shipments sent from Switzerland to Germany, all going through customs at Frankfurt Airport, have been stolen.
Four shipments were sent by registered mail on 2 March 2021 and all went through customs at Frankfurt Airport on 6 March. In each case the, as yet unknown culprit, removed the sticker with the attached documentation, opened the parcel, and removed the inner package with the coins. The empty parcels were then returned to the Post to be distributed to their addressees, all in differing German cities. The fact that the shipments were delivered to different German addresses, as well as the fact that we had no other problems with any other shipments during this period, makes it clear that the theft had to have happened after the parcels were exported from Switzerland, most likely in the sorting center at the Frankfurt airport.
The German police authorities are currently investigating this series of thefts.
Should you see or be offered any of the coins listed below, please let us know and we will contact the authorities.
Best wishes from Zurich,
Alan WalkerNomos AG

We attach a list of the stolen coins:
