The ACCG is entirely supported by generous contributions of collectors and the small businesses of the numismatic trade. Unlike archaeological groups such as CAARI, ACCG receives no government funds and its work is done largely by volunteers rather than academics seconded from other institutions. Nevertheless, some of ACCG's work needs to be farmed out to professionals and this costs money. The funds ACCG has raised in this auction will be used to help preserve the public's longstanding interest in the study and appreciation of ancient coins.
