Numismatic Educational Partnerships and
Complimentary Memberships, References and Services
Kagin’s has always made numismatic education a priority. We recognize that a more informed collector makes for a more dedicated and satisfied client.
We greatly appreciate the following publishers, associations and service organizations willingness to partner with us in furthering The American Numismatic Association’s mission and our goal in providing successful purchasers with the following free educational benefits.
The American Numismatic Association
All successful buyers are eligible for a free ANA one year virtual membership if not currently an ANA member. A free virtual Life Time ANA membership is available to anyone purchasing $250,000 or more.
Whitman Publishing Company
Every successful purchaser will be eligible to receive a 2020 Mega “Red Book” or Guide of U.S. Coins. This is considered the general reference for all American and U.S. coins.
The Newman Portal
We encourage all numismatists to avail themselves of this extremely valuable numismatic resource. They have worked extremely hard to digitize numismatic works not available to most. Here are two links to the just digitized, Kagin Auction Catalogs (since 1940) as well as Private Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States and Treasury Notes of the War of 1812, by Donald H. Kagin, Ph.D.
Professional Coin Grading Service
PCGS is providing links to their highly popular and educational PCGS Price Guide for virtually all coin lots in this catalog. In addition all consignors will be able to get their coins graded in this and future Kagin’s Auctions.
The Professional Numismatist Guild
The PNG is a 50 year old society of professional coin dealers who meet strict professional experience, ethical, financial, and consumer recourse (compulsory arbitration) requirements.
A number of members specialize in representing collectors in grading, pricing and strategically bidding at rare coin auctions like Kagin’s Auctions for a de minimis fee of 5%. We believe it is the best 5% investment in the numismatics industry. For information about this organization and a list of these dealers go to www.pngdealers.org.

Bidders of the California Fractional Gold will be eligible for California Pioneer Fractional Gold written by Walter Breen & Ron Gillio and edited by Robert D. Leonard Jr for a reduced price of$150 ($275 value) while supplies last.
