The C4 Board of Directors is pleased to announce the creation of the Sydney F. Martin Memorial Numismatic Publication Award. This award joins the Eric P. Newman Memorial Lectureship Series presentations and the Q. David Bowers Award for Excellence in Numismatic Research in recognizing the work of individuals for their contributions to the field of Colonial and Early US coinages.
This award will be presented to authors of books published through C4, and at the Board’s discretion can also be presented to authors of works published outside of C4.
The primary purpose of the award will be to recognize the work and its contribution to the dissemination of knowledge in the field of Colonial and Early US numismatics.
Your Board hopes this award, in some small way, recognizes and honors Syd’s outstanding contributions via his four published books, all of which have become the standard references on their respective series, many of which previously lacked a concise and recognized standard reference. Please join us in recognizing Syd for his outstanding contributions which formed the foundation for the creation of this award.
