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 retired as IBNS treasurer in 2015 after twenty-one years service in that office. Joe lives in Indianapolis, USA. His passion outside numismatics is the theater which he attends more often that one might consider possible.
