2023 MCA Medal Available

The 2023 annual MCA club medal is now available for purchase by members. Cast in a limited edition of only 50 examples by artist Natasha Ratcliffe.

Medal Collectors of America was founded in 1998 as a club dedicated to the study and collection of artistic and historical medals. Our goal is to encourage research and publication in the medal field, while bringing together all who are interested, through meetings, publications, and other activities. Our magazine, The MCA Advisory, is published quarterly in both print and electronic versions, and we encourage submissions from both newcomers and experienced researchers. We hold two meetings a year, which are open to all, featuring guest speakers on a wide range of topics relating to medal collecting. One is held in August in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association convention, and the second in January in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic convention. One of the greatest benefits to membership is the opportunity to acquire our annual medal, which is struck in very limited quantities and available only to members.
