With Doug away on a planned break with family to Gippsland in April, Gary Edwards convened the April Meeting. Members presented selections from their coin collections. A very interesting cross section of Australian pre decimal and decimal coinage was exhibited, as well as coins from overseas countries. Discussions included the ways in which coins can be catalogued and displayed and the values of coins, including coins with varieties and blemishes. Interesting stories of how coins were procured/discovered were told and sets of specimen coins displayed.
If you have coins, either as a serious collector or as someone with a cache of old or foreign coins who wants to know more about them, then feel free to come along to share your knowledge or to find out more about those coins.
The Coin Collectors Group meets on the 3rd Monday from 10am to 12noon in the U3A Meeting Room.
