In December, MCCC will hold its annual donated auction. It is not too soon to begin to gather up your coin donations. Our goal is to raise $1000 for the Potomac District of the Boy Scouts. That’s only possible if you donate generously so that we have enough material to reach that goal. Please bring items for the December donated auction to the October or November meeting.
The Maryland State Numismatic Association will be chartering a van or bus so that members can take a day trip to the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money being held in Philadelphia. Jack Schadegg will provide specific details for this trip and a formal trip sign-up/reservation at the July meeting and in the July bulletin. Cost per rider is anticipated to be between $45.00 and $50.00 per person.
So that you may plan your vacation and be able to attend our meeting, Montgomery County Coin Club’s August 2018 meeting will be held on August 21, 2018. The meeting is being moved to accommodate members who are planning to attend the World’s Fair of Money being held in Philadelphia this year. Members who attend the World’s Fair of Money will be invited to show off their purchases, awards, and stories of their experience during the meeting.
Every year the MCCC sells the annual edition of A Guide Book of United States Coins, the Red Book, to members at a discount. The Red Book comes in four formats: Spiral Bound ($11.00), Hardcover ($12.00), Large Print ($19.00), and MEGA RED ($30.00).
New 2018 Pictured Rock Quarters and Jim Thorpe Native American dollars will be available for sale at the March 13, 2018 meeting. There are also coins from previous years including S-Mint quarters, half-dollars, and some Presidential dollars.
If you have not paid your 2018 membership dues, please plan on paying them at the February meeting! Membership is still the very low $8 per year and $2 for Young Numismatists, a price that has not changed in many years. MCCC dues help support our education and outreach programs. At 66-cents per meeting, it is the best deal in town! To pay your dues, download our dues form from our Digital Document Library and you can either pay dues at the next meeting or mail your dues to the address on the form.
