Liberty Coin Service's Communications Officer Patrick A. Heller has received and accepted an invitation from the United States Mint to participate in the Mint's 2017 Numismatic Forum on October 17 at the Mint's headquarters in Washington, DC. The theme of the event is "Numismatics--The Road Ahead." Participation is by invitation only and is likely to be only 50-60 people.
Said LCS CEO and owner Tom Coulson, “We are honored that Pat has once again been recognized by the US Mint with this invitation to meet with US Mint staff. Liberty Coin Service is committed to supporting the hobby of coin and paper money collecting. Consulting with the staff of the US Mint is just one more way we promote the use of money for educational purposes and recreation. Pat participated in the Mint's first Numismatic Forum in Philadelphia last October, the only participant from Michigan, then wrote an article on the event posted at http://www.numismaticnews.net/article/mint-holds-forum that contains extensive feedback and suggestions to the US Mint.”
