   This academic year we welcome back teachers and schools with whom we have already worked in the past, plus some new schools whose students will be delving into Roman coins, probably for the first time.   We hope that you will find the various explanations to help as you go along on this web site.  
If you want to order Roman coins, see the Application form, and write to Souzana at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it    If you have specific questions, our President, Mark Lehman, is a veritable fount of information, and he can be reached at        This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it     
Another ancient coin and artifact guru is our Director Scott Uhrick, who carefully checks our Optimate coins before sending them out as per your orders.     ACE is run by volunteers and we have been running this registered non profit for 16 years, and look forward to this new academic year. 







ACE Essay Contest Fall 2017

We want all our teacher classes and student friends to "have a go"  at one of our Essay subjects this Fall. 

The teachers pick their favorites and send them in to us before Thursday, 30th November. Your essays then go before  our judges
and the placing winners are announced before the Holiday break.    We send your winning prizes  (Identified Ancient coins, of course!!)

Good luck and pay careful attention to the details behind your Essays - we expect them to be based  on well researched information!
