George Cuhaj commended as Outstanding Adult Advisor
Each year, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) recognizes with its Outstanding Adult Advisor Award a member whose work in encouraging and assisting young numismatists (YNs) is particularly noteworthy. During the Abe Kosoff Young Numismatists Breakfast at the ANA's 111th Anniversary Convention in New York City, George Cuhaj of Iola, Wisconsin, was honored as this year's recipient.
A long-time collector, Cuhaj has been conducting coin collecting merit badge clinics at Boy Scout Jamborees for more than 20 years. With the average attendance at a Jamboree totaling more than 70,000 Scouts and leaders, Cuhaj has introduced the joy of numismatics to literally thousands of participants with the myriad of items he gives away and his vast knowledge of coins. He has authored a book, Standard Price Guide to U.S. Scouting Collectibles, which has become the standard reference on the topic.
Always ready to discuss his hobby, Cuhaj likes to help young people start and advance their collections and their collecting habits. A mentor to many new collectors, he also is frequently seen at Boy Scout Merit Badge clinics at coin shows across the country.
In presenting this Outstanding Adult Advisor Award to George Cuhaj, the American Numismatic Association expresses the sincere appreciation of its members for his service.
