On August 3, during the American Numismatic Association (ANA) World’s Fair of Money Convention in Denver, Colorado, Liberty Coin Service Communications Officer Patrick A. Heller was honored three times. The ANA recognized him as the 2017 recipient of the Exemplary Service Award. From the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) he was honored as the 2017 recipient of the Best Dealer Newsletter or Magazine and Best Radio Report.
Tom Coulson, CEO of Liberty Coin Service, said, “The Exemplary Service Award is given to those who have served the ANA and its Mission. Pat has served on ANA committees for twelve years, including eight years as a chair or co-chair. For the past three years, he volunteered his time as an ANA-certified numismatic exhibit judge. In addition, he has been extremely active in promoting the ANA’s mission to use money as an educational tool. Over the decades, Pat has made hundreds of presentations at schools, taught classes on coin collecting, and made countless presentations across the country to Scout organizations, 4-H groups, numismatic clubs, churches, and a variety or adult organizations. He was previously honored by the ANA with a Presidential Award in 2008 and with the Harry Forman Numismatic Dealer of the Year Award.”
