An Important Message Regarding Import Restrictions
on Numismatic Objects from Italy

Dear ANA members:

An issue has recently come to light that could damage our hobby. The Untied States government is about to decide whether cultural property of Italian origin should be restricted from entry into the U.S. unless accompanied by Italian export permits. On May 6-7, the Cultural Property Advisory Committee (CPAC) will hold hearings regarding the 5-year renewal of an already existing agreement.  Although ancient coins have been exempted twice before in these renewals, there is good reason to believe that Italy and members of the archaeological community will this time seek to add coins to the list of restricted items.

The ANA is opposed to new import restrictions on numismatic objects, and wants its members’ opinions to be heard by the government. The Ancient Coin Collectors Guild (ACCG), an ANA member club, has a convenient way for collectors to contact the CPAC; access the “ACCG Fax Wizard” link below and follow the instructions to let the CPAC know how you feel.

The "ACCG Fax Wizard" is quick and easy. Enter your basic information, select from a list of perspectives, click on "Sample Letters" and "Talking Points" to cut and paste the body of your letter, and send it directly to the CPAC. Don’t delay – the deadline to voice your opinion is April 22.

This is an important issue for all numismatists, regardless of collecting interests. Thank you for your time and efforts.
