Joseph Boling (2010)

Joseph Boling has devoted much of his life to collecting and a large part of his retirement years to the services of numismatics as an author and an indefatigable administrator.

Joe spent a career in the US Army, after studying at the University of Washington and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He retired in 1992 with the rank of colonel. As a collector and researcher, Joe became an expert on Japanese coins and paper money and the numismatics of World War II. He has published two books on the topic and edited a number of others. More recently he has emerged as a leading expert on counterfeiting, a subject on which he teaches for the American Numismatic Association. Joe is currently a head exhibit judge for ANA and has been treasurer of IBNS for the past 17 years. Joe lives in Indianapolis, USA. His passion outside numismatics is the theater which he attends more often that one might consider possible.
