In January of 2017 Beth Deisher was asked by coin industry leaders to leave retirement to lead an effort to combat counterfeit coins entering the United States. She is currently serving as director of anti-counterfeiting and coordinates the work of the all-volunteer 36-member Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force, supported entirely by donations and the 501-C-3 Anti- Counterfeiting Educational Foundation.

The task force and the non-profit foundation share the mission of educating law enforcement authorities and policy makers about the rising threat of counterfeiting, mobilizing law enforcement to attack counterfeiters where they are most vulnerable, and provide expertise and other resources in the investigation and prosecution of counterfeiters and those involved at all levels of their distribution networks. Their mission also includes creating awareness of counterfeits and educating the public about the harmful effects of counterfeits in the marketplace.

Deisher is one of coin collecting’s most trusted authorities. She was editor of Coin World for 27 years (1985-2012). She was also the founding editor of three other numismatic magazines published by Amos Hobby Publishing and is the author or senior editor of 10 books in the numismatic field.

During her first year of retirement from Coin World she wrote Cash In Your Coins – Selling the Rare Coins You’ve Inherited. Published by Whitman Books and now in its second edition, Cash In Your Coins won top awards from the Numismatic Literary Guild and other national writing competitions.

In 2013 Deisher was inducted into the Numismatic Hall of Fame. She is a Fellow of the American Numismatic Society and a member of its Board of Trustees. She holds memberships in many state, regional, and national numismatic organizations, including the American Numismatic Association. In 2010 she received the ANA’s highest honor, the Farran Zerbe Memorial Award for distinguished service in numismatics. She was awarded the Numismatic Literary Guild’s Clemy Award in 1995 and received the Burnett Anderson Memorial Award for journalistic excellence in 2006. In 2017 she received the Professional Numismatists Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
