The IAPN Book Prize 2023
The International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN) organizes its General Assembly every year in a different country in the world. The 2023 General Assembly took place in Marseille. One of the highlights of the general assembly is undoubtedly the Book Prize of the IAPN. This prize rewards a numismatic work published the previous year. There were 24 books entered for the competition, which was decided by vote of the membership of the IAPN at its 71st General Assembly on 4 June 2023.
The winner of the 2023 IAPN Book Prize is Prashant Kulkarni, a numismatist and dealer from Nagpur, India, for his Archaic Coinage of Godavari Valley and the Deccan, published by Eternal Arts and Coins LLP, Nagpur, worldwide distribution of which is via Spink in London. Second prize went to Stéphan Sombart, senior numismatist at MDC in Monte Carlo, Monaco, for his Monnaies Royales Françaises de Louis XI à Henri IV, published by Éditions Victor Gadoury in Monaco. Third prize went to Christopher McDowell, a lawyer from Cincinnati, OH, the editor of JEAN and president of C4, for his The Early Betts Medal Companion, published by the ANS in New York.
The value of the Prize is 1,000 CHF. The winner also receives a diploma and an IAPN medal, and it is hoped that these can be presented to him at a future IAPN function.
