The American Numismatic Association is pleased to announce that Classical Numismatic Group, LLC (CNG) will be conducting an Official ANA Auction at the National Money Show® to be held at the iconic Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado, 10th-12th March 2022. CNG also has been selected to conduct an Official ANA Auction at the Phoenix National Money Show in 2023.

Established in 1975, CNG is an international firm with offices in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and London, England with a focus on ancient, medieval and British numismatics, as well as U.S. coins.

The CNG auction will be online only, with lot viewing available at the show. (The date of the auction is yet to be determined.) The first part of the auction will be the sale of the Ken Bressett collection of Roman coinage. Bressett, the editor emeritus of A Guide Book of United States Coins (the official Red Book), was careful not to collect anything featured in the Red Book to avoid any conflict of interest, according to CNG Managing Director Mike Gasvoda. Bressett’s Roman coinage collection will comprise 300 to 350 lots.

“We are thrilled to be conducting an official ANA auction and hope that this is the first of many,” says Gasvoda. “As an ANA member for more than 40 years, it gives me great pleasure to be a part of furthering the mission of the Association.”


To consign items with CNG for the National Money Show auction, collectors can contact Gasvoda via email.
