Beaumont, TX (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
Mike Fuljenz, author, numismatist and President of Universal Coin & Bullion is a winner of 24 Numismatic Literary Guild awards for his numerous books and reporting on rare coins. Three of his books are now being given away to Libraries, collectors or dealers who want to learn more about Indian Head Quarter Eagles, Type II Double Eagles or Type III Double Eagles. UCB will even pay for the postage. The reason for the benevolence is to help promote the 84th annual National Coin Week, (Week of April 15-21) sponsored by the American Numismatic Association (ANA).
The ANA is the largest non-profit educational organization dedicated to enlightening and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. The ANA helps people discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of programs including education, museum, library, publications, conventions and seminars. Mike Fuljenz, an ANA presidential service award winner, taught seminars on gold coins from 1982 - 1998 for the ANA in Colorado Springs. During the same week the American Library Association (ALA) observes National Library Week. This convergence of these celebrations prompted Universal Coin & Bullion to give away 1500 of Mr. Fuljenz's books to foster a better awareness of these two events and what they represent.
Mr. Fuljenz and his staff from Universal Coin & Bullion hope that all who request these books will eventually donate them to their local library. Because of the rich history and merits behind these particular United States gold coins, it would benefit the numismatic community to have coin guides of this type available in local libraries to better acquaint coin collectors about these coins.
Mr. Fuljenz who is an ardent writer, concise, and whimsical hopes his books will excite others to take up the hobby of coin collecting. It's no surprise that a book written by a president of a large coin dealer, like Universal Coin & Bullion, promote the merits of investing in collectible gold coins, but in truth Fuljenz writings provide valuable insight into this hobby. These award winning books include descriptions of special collectible coin markets, tips on what to look for in coins, and a helpful introduction to collecting and investing in gold coins or gold bullion.
