           (Temecula, California) -- The Professional Numismatists Guild's (http://www.PNGdealers.org) "Promoting Numismatic Growth" program has placed another intern into a full-time job as a professional numismatist.  PNG also has streamlined the program for prospective future interns.

            Monica Bacon, age 29, of Indianapolis, Indiana, now has been hired as a Consignment Coordinator at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas after a brief internship there. Monica Bacon

            "I'm excited and grateful for the opportunity," said Bacon.  "I have a nice support system here and everyone has something to teach me.  I'm looking forward to seeing where this door leads."

            Prior to starting her internship at Heritage, Bacon was an intern for three months at Dillon Gage Metals in Addison, Texas as part of PNG's Promoting Numismatic Growth program.

            "I learned heaps and made some lasting friendships. Dillon Gage is a family that I'm grateful to have been a part of," she said.

            Bacon is the third intern hired full-time since the PNG internship rotations began earlier this year, and the second one hired by Heritage. 

            "We are big supporters of the PNG internship program, and are very pleased with the quality of candidates we are getting," stated Heritage Co-Chairman Steve Ivy, a PNG Past President.

            "The PNG internship project is designed to provide education, training and mentoring for the next generation of coin and banknote dealers.  Applications are encouraged and being accepted from prospective professional numismatists, ages 21 and up, who want to participate in the program," said PNG President Terry Hanlon, President of Dillon Gage.

            In addition to Heritage and Dillon Gage, two other PNG member-dealer companies currently are offering internship positions through the PNG program: Numismatic Guaranty Corporation in Sarasota, Florida which hired a PNG intern in May, and Stack's Bowers Galleries in Irvine, California. 

            Carol Raia, Administrator of the PNG Promoting Numismatic Growth program, said based on the success of the unprecedented project's first year of  operation, changes are being made to streamline the process for future interns.

            "Internship candidates who successfully complete the background security check and education components of the program will get a certificate of completion.  Then, instead of a year-long rotation of three-month internship positions at four different firms, they will have the opportunity for a three-month internship at a participating PNG member's dealership.  PNG headquarters will inform all PNG member-dealers about the availability of the internship candidates," Raia explained.

            Former PNG intern and now full-time professional numismatist Monica Bacon encourages prospective future dealers to enroll in the PNG program.

            "This is a once in a lifetime experience so don't waste it.  You need to go in with a positive attitude and a good work ethic. Ask questions, pick everyone's brains, and touch as much material as you can.  Strive to learn everything you possibly can," she advised.

            Specific information about the internship program, including costs and required online educational courses through the University of Rare Coins, is available at www.PNGdealers.org under the "Promoting Numismatic Growth" navigation links near the top of the PNG's home page.  For additional information, contact the PNG by phone at (951) 587-8300 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots.

           (New York, New York) -- The first public appearance in New York of gold coins from the headline-generating $10 million Saddle Ridge Hoard buried treasure trove that was unearthed last year in California's gold country will take place October 9 - 11, 2014.

            More than 50 of the historic coins, including the finest known 1866-S No Motto Double Eagle valued at over $1 million, will be a featured exhibit at the PNG New York Invitational Coin Show.  Produced by the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.com), the show will be open to the public at the Millennium Broadway Hotel, 145 West 44h Street, a half block East of Broadway.No Motto 1866 Double Eagle

            The Saddle Ridge Hoard was discovered in 2013 by a couple walking their dog.  More than 1,400 century-old U.S. gold coins with a combined value of more than $10 million were found in decaying metal canisters. 

            "The hoard is believed to be the greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States, and it made international headlines this past February when its discovery was announced. This will be the first time any of these coins will be publicly exhibited in New York," said Robert Brueggeman, PNG Executive Director.

            Kagin's, Inc. (www.Kagins.com) of Tiburon, California, the rare coin experts who are assisting the anonymous owners of the hoard, will display over 50 of the coins along with several of the rusty canisters in which they were found. 

   Saddle Ridge Hoard canisters         "One of the coins we'll be exhibiting is the finest known surviving example of an 1866-S Double Eagle without the motto, 'IN GOD WE TRUST.'  That coin alone is valued at over $1 million," said Donald Kagin, President of Kagin's.

            Major auctions will be conducted in conjunction with the show by Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com) and Stack's Bowers Galleries (www.StacksBowers.com).

            The last major numismatic show in the Times Square neighborhood was in 1997.  PNG executives think a coin and currency show in the area is overdue because of the strong market for high-quality, rare coins.

            "We estimated the overall coin market in the U.S. last year at about $5 billion.  That includes auctions and private transactions made at coin shows, and sales by mail order, online and at coin stores, but does not include numismatic bullion items or the modern coins sold directly by the United States Mint," said Terry Hanlon, PNG President.

            "Many investors and collectors see a good buying opportunity with some of their profits taken from the increase in stock prices being reinvested in rare coins.  There's also the continuing interest in hard assets with the confidence that rare coin values will grow with the success of the economic conditions, even as precious metals themselves may be declining," Hanlon explained.

            Public registration for the October 9 - 11 show will be on the 7th floor of the Millennium Broadway Hotel.  Admission will be $10 at the door; however, $5 admission coupons are available online at www.PNGdealers.org.

            Public hours will be Thursday, October 9, from 10 am to 6 pm; Friday, October 10, from 9 am to 6 pm; and on Saturday, October 11, from 9 am to 5 pm.

            Founded in 1955, the Professional Numismatists Guild is composed of many of the country's top rare coin and paper money dealers.  PNG member-dealers must adhere to a strict code of ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise.  A complete listing of PNG member-dealers is available online at www.PNGdealers.org.

            For additional information, contact the Professional Numismatists Guild by phone at (951) 587-8300 or via email at /Users/user/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/Content.Outlook/8OWFDWKT/ This email address is being protected from spambots.
