Speakers for this month's NNP Symposium from the Newman Numismatic Portal have been announced.
The next NNP Symposium is happening later this month, April 27-29. The full schedule is available on our website now - take a look!
All of the presentations will be available to watch live and in-person at the Central States Convention in Schaumburg, or you can livestream them like normal! You'll still be able to ask questions and interact over Zoom just like past Symposia. If you do plan to tune in virtually, you need to register.
We have a few special presentations this year that we're excited to highlight.
THE HARRY W. BASS, JR. COLLECTION
by Greg Rohan
Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions, speaks on the Texas collector Harry W. Bass, Jr. and his numismatic endeavors. Bass collected widely, with specialties in U.S. gold, pattern pieces, and numismatic literature. A World War II veteran, Bass was active in oil and real estate and worked within the hobby to promote scholarship within American numismatics. He was influential in the computerization of the American Numismatic Society collection, one of the earliest such efforts in the formative days of the Internet. The Bass collection continues to draw headlines today, with the recent offering of the Bass reference sets by Heritage Auctions.
2:30 Central / 3:30 Eastern on Thursday, April 27

CRYPTO, CRIMINALS, AND THE FUTURE OF MONEY
with Q&A with Rob Rodriguez & James Passin
Beginning in Fall 2021, each NNP Symposium has included a 20-30 minute feature video on an important collection, followed by a Q&A with someone associated with it. This NNP Symposium's feature video will instead focus on cryptocurrency - what it is, how it works, and what its impact has been. Feel free to view past feature videos here.
