The American Numismatic Association (ANA) group
insurance administrator changed its name on July 1, 2000, from Albert H. Wohlers
& Co. to Seabury & Smith. However, the coverage remains the same.
"This is only a name change," says ANA Membership Director Rudy Bahr. "Our
members will continue to receive the same great coverage Wohlers has been
providing the ANA for more than 25 years. Seabury & Smith is a division of
the Marsh & McLennan Companies, which has access to more markets and products,
and can bring more clout in negotiating benefits and rates with insurance
Insurance coverage available to ANA members includes:
accidental death and dismemberment
major medical, hospital, cancer, long term care
In 1998 ANA members were first offered an
improved coin collection insurance plan to protect their numismatic holdings
against theft, fire, flood or other natural disasters. The Reliance
Insurance Company underwrites the plan with a new, simplified rate structure and
application procedure, while offering the same dependable coverage.
Unlike most homeowner's insurance policies that limit compensation for
numismatic property to $250, the ANA "All-Risk" Plan offers full coverage.
