Used to provide members with an opportunity to buy membership medals inscribed with their name and membership number. I have two of these, one in silver and one in bronze, same design, same diameter, they have my original membership number that I held from 1977 to 1993.
The Old ANA
This subject enters my mind from time to time but as of yet not gone beyond a thought. Since I have not pursued the matter, and hearing for the first time they are no
longer offered, perhaps it's time to inquire as to why.

I am new and just exploring the site, came across this thread. Does ANA still make these for new members, how much did they cost?
I don't believe so, the ANA used to sell ANA logo items on the website but they gave that up many years ago. But you can always inquire at
Don't know what they sell online anymore or if anything. A medal would be awesome, with number and name. I think a lot of people would be interested. Donations online seems to be available. Maybe receive a medal for a certain donation amount? Not sure, but I believe the ANA is not equipped to sell merchandise online anymore, but able to process donations? Maybe due both with donations ?2 years ago
They should still do that today. Very nice medal2 years ago
I understand that the ANA is considering selling merch like shirts and coffee mugs through some entity like Cafe Press. That way, ANA does not have to do any of the shipping or storing, just promotion on their webpage, etc. This possibility was mentioned by one of the current ANA Governors on the Facebook ANA members only site. I do not think they would include medals as this is something that Cafe Press never sells. Having said that, the ANA medals for this years cancelled show will be sold and only 100 of each type will be available. That is 100 large medals, 100 two medals silver/bronze sets, and 100 convention badges (medals hanging on a ribbon). A wonderful opportunity and still available.
Great info, thank you all! I will keep an eye out for one of those medals, they are sharp looking.2 years ago
Great idea using Cafe Press or someone like them. Should make a lot of money once the word gets out, when they do it. Thanks.2 years ago
