Guth is an award-winning author and researcher whose works include “Coin Collecting For Dummies”, “The 100 Greatest Women on Coins,” and the “Encyclopedia of United States Gold Coins 1795-1933” (co-authored with Jeff Garrett). A Certified Public Accountant, Guth has expertise in U.S. and world coins, operates GermanCoins.com and is a former President of Professional Coin Grading Service and PCGSCoinFacts.com. “For decades, the NLG has been the biggest supporter of numismatic writers, giving them the recognition they deserve for what is often a labor of love,” said Guth. “I look forward to continuing the NLG’s record of service and to preserve, build, and expand the NLG so that every numismatic writer will have the opportunity to hone their craft in a supportive environment.”
Under Pearlman’s interim tenure as NLG Acting Executive Director extensive work began to streamline and update the annual awards competition categories “to bring them into the 21st century,” Pearlman explained. “It has been an honor to serve the NLG during the past year’s transition period. The NLG Board members and I are grateful that Ron has accepted this important role in helping to promote numismatic education,” said Pearlman.
