Ancient Coins for Education, Inc. (ACE) was established in 2001 as a registered non-profit organization to encourage learning about Classical (Greek, Roman, and Byzantine) history through the use of ancient numismatics. ACE provides coins to students for their study and attribution with the help of online and computer resources.
ACE is run by volunteers and works primarily with middle and high schools (both public and private), with some elementary schools and universities also participating in specially directed versions of the program. Though the coins that ACE furnishes to these educational establishments are typically of lower monetary value, they provide a basis for unique, hands-on study of the ancient world. ACE lends assistance to creative school activities, such as Ancient Coin Museums and Archaeological Simulation projects, which encourage students' interest in ancient history.
