Wayne Sayles

Wayne Gerald Sayles was born on March 8, 1943 at Waukesha, Wisconsin. After retiring from the USAF in 1982, Wayne earned a Masters degree in Art History at the University of Wisconsin. In 1987 he founded The Celator -- a monthly journal about ancient coins (still the premier periodical in its field today). He co-authored Turkoman Figural Bronze Coins and Their Iconography (2 vols.) with William F. Spengler; wrote the six volume series Ancient Coin Collecting (3 are in expanded 2nd ed.); the monograph Classical Deception; and the exhibition catalogue of the Ned H. and Gloria A. Griner Greek and Roman Coin Collection at Ball State University. He wrote the "Coin Collecting" article for Encyclopaedia Britannica and most recently the biography of William Edward Cramsie titled First to Fall. Wayne has also published several titles by other authors under his own banner of "Clio's Cabinet". He is a Life Fellow of the American Numismatic Society; Fellow of the Royal Numismatic Society (London, England); Life Member of the Hellenic Numismatic Society (Athens, Greece); Life Member of the American Israel Numismatic Society; member of the American Numismatic Association and the Numismatic Literary Guild, and an honorary member of several coin clubs in various states. He is the founder and Executive Director of the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild and was honored by that organization's Board of Directors in 2006 with a special award for "Exceptional Contributions to Ancient Numismatics." Wayne has lectured extensively at national conventions, symposia, seminars and club meetings, written more than 200 articles about ancient coinage, and has been honored with numerous Numismatic Literary Guild awards. He has on six occasions presented testimony before the U.S. State Department's Cultural Property Advisory Committee in Washington, DC. He continues to write a monthly column in The Celator and maintains two personal blogs on the internet. He is a recipient of the prestigious "Numismatic Ambassador" award from Krause Publications, and was selected by KP in 2007 as one of the 55 "Most Intriguing People in Numismatics". He is a recipient of the American Numismatic Association President's Award and Glenn Smedley Memorial Award. He has been a biographee in Marquis, Who's Who in America and in Who's Who in the World, since 2006.
