American Numismatic Society
New York, NY
"The mission of The American Numismatic Society is to be the preeminent national institution advancing the study and appreciation of coins, medals and related objects of all cultures as historical and artistic documents, by maintaining the foremost numismatic collection and library, by supporting scholarly research and publications, and by sponsoring educational and interpretive programs for diverse audiences."
On June 18, 2004, The American Numismatic Society officially opened its new headquarters at 96 Fulton Street (and the corner of William Street) in lower Manhattan.
The 35,000 square foot former bank building also encompasses the world's largest numismatic library. The library embraces two full floors. There are educational and research facilities now available to international scholars, students and the general public who are interested in studying coins, medals and other treasures in the Society's superb collection.
On June 18, 2004 phase one of this historic move was completed with the offices, library and a 2000- square-foot high-security vault. The second phase of the development - the opening of an exhibition hall - is planned for completion in 2007/8. The ground floor serves as a conference and educational center for lectures, symposia and other public events.
The ANS was formerly located in the landmark Audubon Terrace Cultural Complex, 155th Street and Broadway, New York City, NY. The neoclassical building was home to the Society and its collections since the building opened in 1908 until the move in June 2004.
