2013 national advertising rate card
The Numismatist is a controlled circulation, educational magazine published monthly and distributed to all American Numismatic Association (ANA) members as a membership benefit. Print and online circulation is currently 27,200, and each issue is 104 to 120 pages.
Advertisers of numismatic material must be ANA members. Contracts are available for 3, 6 and 12 time placement. Frequency will be consecutive unless otherwise scheduled. Page position can be requested for regular advertisements, but cannot be guaranteed. No advertisements will be accepted from minors unless accompanied by a statement of financial responsibility signed by a parent or legal guardian. In keeping with the Hobby Protection Act, advertisements for reproductions or imitations of numismatic items must clearly state that they are not original. Photographs of these items must show they have been marked with the word "COPY" and must include the date of manufacture.
Any company advertising numismatic goods or services must include in its advertisement the name and membership number of a least one affiliated ANA member employed as a principal officer of that company.
The Numismatist reserves the right to edit copy and/or require payment in advance. The publisher may decline or cancel any advertisement at his discretion.
Members may qualify for a 3% discount, provided cameraready artwork is supplied by the member or his/her agency. The ad must be submitted in an acceptable format and adhere to published guidelines. The Numismatist assumes no responsibility for substandard artwork or any printed materials furnished by the advertiser or the agency. Rates on this card are for "run of publication." Guaranteed placement and preferred placement are available.
Preferred ad placement is available for 20% above the rate for regular advertisements. Preferred-placement ads are positioned in the first third of the magazine, as far forward as possible.
Guaranteed ad placement is available for 35% above the rate for regular advertisements. Guaranteed-placement ads are placed on a specific page for the duration of the contract. All positions subject to availability.

To ensure insertion in the desired issue, copy must be received by the deadline stated in this schedule. Ad copy can be changed each issue, but if new copy is not received from contract advertisers by the deadline, the previous month's ad will be repeated.
Ad copy must be legible and not included in the body of a letter or other transmission. New ad copy cannot be accepted via telephone. Requests for photography of numismatic items will be billed at prevailing national rates.
Every effort is made to ensure accuracy in all display advertising. If The Numismatist builds a display ad, a proof will be provided for review of format and typography. At that time, ad revisions can be requested. Advertisers may be charged for extensive changes requested after the deadline. The ANA is not responsible for any errors or omissions noted following the advertiser's approval of the advertisement.
