Since 1982, in order to encourage the publication of books of scientific and general interest,
the International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN) has awarded an annual honorary prize for a numismatic work published the previous year. During the annual IAPN General Assembly, members hold a vote to select a winner from among the many titles submitted to the competition.
The IAPN Book Prize consists of a medal, a diploma and a monetary award. Prize winnersare formally presented with their awards during future IAPN gatherings.
Books suitable for the prize must be submitted to the Chairman of the Publication Committee at least 90-days before the General Assembly of the Association convenes.
Previous IAPN Book Prize Winners and their publications are listed below.
