On March 30, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan issued a Stay-at-Home Order closing non-essential businesses and restricting gathering in the state. The order restates the governor’s March 16, 2020, closure of senior centers. MCCC will not meet in April. President Don Stepita will keep the membership updated regarding the May meeting. Please stay safe and healthy!
The March Meeting will feature a presentation by Don Stepita who will talk about how history and politics affected the dollars of 1871 (Morgan and Trade) and of 1921 (Morgan and Peace).
MCCC welcomes Julian Leidman to our February meeting for his annual “State of the Numismatic Industry” discussion. His insights into the numismatic profession, state of the industry, and what he sees coming in the near future always make for an interesting evening.
Following the induction of officers, new President Don Stepita will preside over a business meeting of the club. The agenda will be available at the meeting. It is also time to pay your 2020 MCCC dues. Membership is still the very low $8 per year and $2 for Young Numismatists, a price that has not changed in many years.
December’s program will be our annual Donated Auction to benefit the Boy Scouts of National Capital Area Potomac District. The auction will consist of a combination of coins, hobby supplies, numismatic literature, etc. MCCC will also hold its annual election for 2020. And don’t forget about the POT LUCK!
For our November meeting, MCCC Treasurer Simcha Kuritzky will be showing calendar medals issued by the Vienna, Austria (Haupt) Mint from 1932 to 1946. There will also be newly released quarters and dollars for sale as well as preparing for the Donated Auction and Potluck Dinner in December.
