(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) – America's Gold Expert, Michael Fuljenz in Beaumont, Texas, set an unparalleled record of achievement at the World's Fair of Money in Philadelphia, August 7 - 11, 2012. He received another six prestigious industry awards, continuing a string of honors and accomplishments at these annual gatherings of the world's top rare coin and precious metals dignitaries.

The World's Fair of Money is an international event sponsored by the nonprofit, congressionally-chartered American Numismatic Association.

Since 1986, Fuljenz now has won an unequaled 44 awards in 10 different categories from the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG), a respected nonprofit organization composed of authors, editors and publishers who cover rare coins, paper money and precious metals. The esteemed awards are presented at the annual World's Fair of Money conventions, and Fuljenz set a record at the 2012 event.

"No one else I can recall has ever won in so many diverse categories over the years," stated NLG Executive Director Ed Reiter, a former columnist for The New York Times.

One of the 2012 awards is for Best Dealer Publication for Fuljenz' "Investors Profit Advisory (Personal Gold Guide)." This was the fifth consecutive year he has won in this important category. His expertise in the area of precious metals has led to numerous interview requests from local, regional and national news media over the years.

I am urging coin collectors and investors nationwide to promptly contact their Congressional representatives in support of the recently introduced Collectible Coin Protection Act (HR5977).

I was among a half dozen of the country's numismatic leaders who met in Washington, DC on June 28, 2012 with Congressional leaders and staff members to discuss the importance of the proposed legislation to protect the public.

The bill was introduced on June 20, 2012 by co-sponsors Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Fred Upton (R-Michigan), Chairman of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. (It has bipartisan support). HR5977 will strengthen the 39-year old Hobby Protection Act, a law that helps combat counterfeits. We need to bring that law into the 21st century because of new issues that were not even contemplated decades ago.
