(en) The ANS Lyceum is an online educational offering from the American Numismatic Society. Over several weeks, participants have the opportunity to engage in interactive lectures and discussion sessions with ANS curators, staff, and other specialists. The ANS Lyceum is open to all with no prior knowledge of numismatics or history required or expected.

This series of lectures will address the relationship between coin production, circulation, and civil wars from ancient to modern times. Beginning with a lecture quantifying the increase in hoard deposition during civil wars, this ANS Lyceum will then deal with the realities of civic strife in the Greek and Roman world and Modern Age England. The last two sessions will be dedicated to the analysis of coins and tokens issued during the course of the US Civil War.
