Dear IACA delegates,

We are excited to announce that we have completed a re-build of the website that will provide us greater flexibility as we work to improve your IACA experience.  For the present, the site will not look different, however, it is running on a new platform.  This change requires all of our delegates to implement a new password when they log on for the first time to the members-only section of the site.  CLICK HERE to reset your password. Your email address will be you username.

We thank you for your cooperation.

Best regards,

Eugenie Foster
Executive Director


IACA will present its Excellence in Currency Awards in four categories at the Coin Conference in Madrid, Spain:

  • Best New Circulating Coin or Coin Series
  • Best New Commemorative or Test Circulating Coin Issued at Face Value
  • Best Coin Public Education Program or Website
  • Best Coin Innovation

Projects of any issuer of coins, organization or individual supplying products, services or systems for coin production, distribution, processing or management are eligible for nomination in the appropriate categories. Self-nomination by such organizations is allowable, and encouraged.

IACA’s Guidelines for IACA’s Excellence in Currency Awards have been updated and can be found by clicking here.  We developed this document to provide transparency and offer guidance on our criteria.  Nominations that reflect the guidelines will have the best chance of success.

Nominations in all categories for award in Madrid are limited to the two-year period from August 1, 2013 through July 31, 2015.



Banque du Liban: Meet IACA’s Members

We are happy to introduce Banque du Liban as the latest participant in our Meet IACA’s Members program. Georges Chaloub and Mazen Hamdan of the Bank’s Cash Operations Department have provided us with their paper entitled Banknote Substrate Durability: A live circulation comparative study. Please click on the button below to link to the paper.

We plan to highlight all of our organizations in the Meet IACA’s Members program. IACA will spotlight your organization to our more than 300 delegates in the Cash industry by emailing them a copy of your paper and by posting it on our public website. Eligible papers should be approximately 800 words on a topic of general interest; papers should not market or sell particular products or services.


We encourage you to participate, by contacting Eugenie Foster,
