AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Philip N. Diehl, president of U.S. Money Reserve and chairman of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), was among the first recipients of the annual Al Kreuzer Memorial Award during ICTA's banquet at the American Numismatic Association's World's Fair of Money, in Denver on August 2, 2017.
Diehl, along with fellow recipients Michael R. Fuljenz and Chandra Kreuzer-Zell Rudd, was recognized for his devoted work with the Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (ACTF). The ACTF's main mission is to educate law-enforcement authorities and policymakers about the rising threat of counterfeiting, mobilize law enforcement to prosecute counterfeiters, and provide expertise and other resources to those involved at all levels of their distribution networks.
The Al Kreuzer Memorial Award is named after Alan "Al" Kreuzer, the long-time California coin dealer who founded and operated Alan Kreuzer Rare Coins and Collectibles, in Castro Valley, Calif. He is remembered for his instrumental role in identifying counterfeit coins in the Bay Area. Kreuzer's daughter, Chandra Kreuzer-Zell Rudd, received the award in recognition of her efforts to help launch the task force. Kreuzer-Zell Rudd donated $50,000 to the Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force, in honor of her father—a donation that greatly propelled the beginning work of the ACTF.
"My priority as ICTA's chairman has been to mobilize federal law enforcement agencies against coin counterfeiting to protect American consumers and defend the integrity of our nation's coinage," Diehl said. "It's an honor to have these efforts recognized by my colleagues."
Diehl, who previously served as the 35th director of the U.S. Mint, was named chairman of the ICTA Board of Directors in 2016. Known as the "watchdog" for the rare coins, paper money and precious-metals bullion communities, ICTA maintains a favorable regulatory climate throughout all 50 states and provides a medium through which its members may confer, consult, and cooperate with and educate governmental and other agencies to achieve solutions to problems affecting their businesses.
Diehl's expansive experience equipped him with a unique skill set to aptly build and guide the ACTF in its formative year. Diehl is considered one of the most accomplished U.S. Mint directors in history, and as president of one of the world's largest private distributors of U.S. and foreign government-issued gold, silver and platinum legal tender products, he is widely considered a credible and trustworthy source for the precious metals market.
