The American Numismatic Association has awarded the Outstanding Specialty Numismatic Publication Award to the Casino Chip & Token News, a quarterly publication of The Casino Chip & Gaming Token Collectors Club, Inc.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the ANA for their Outstanding Specialty Club Publication award,” former editor Allan Anderson said. “In the 8 years that I’ve submitted the magazine in the contest we have won five first places, one second and a third. There have been many people over the years that have contributed in many ways, writing articles, doing research, submitting photos, editing articles and of course advertising. It’s what made the magazine great.”
The award is based on general appearance, news content, composition, aptness of illustrations and relative interest. Publications must have been issued on a regular basis such as monthly or quarterly.
Todd Barrett recently replaced Anderson. Barrett will work with assistant editors Bob Orme and Joe Shaw.
“I look forward to continuing on the great success the magazine has had in the past, Barrett said. “It is a joy to work with the club members who supply great articles and features each quarter. They are what makes the Casino Chip and Token News magazine what it is.”
