Minutes 09.06.12

The meeting was called to order by Bill G., President. There were 23 members and 2 guests present. The guests later joined the club. The minutes were dispensed with.

Old business: A reminder was given about the Winterfest program sponsored by the library. The coin club will be participating in this program. All members are encouraged to participate. This is a good opportunity to present the Coin Club to the community. A motion was made to appoint a three person committee to check on getting a projector for the club to use with some of the programs. The motion was seconded and approved. John D., Christian M., and Allan R will investigate and report their findings in October.

New business: Hal C. was appointed to look into and make a recommendation for a place for the annual Christmas dinner for members and guests. He will report back next month and a vote will be taken for the most desirable place.

The October program will feature Kurt B. He will present a program on different metals from which coins and medals are made. He has brought our program before and is very interesting.

The November program will be another grading seminar conducted by several of our members who have very good grading skills. Members are asked to bring coins to use as teaching tools.

Program: One of the librarians gave a presentation on what the library offers members of the library. A show and tell was held. There were presentations on a cancelled coin die, the method of identifying the obverse and reverse of ancient coins, and a 3 legged buffalo nickel found in a junk box. An auction was held selling proof sets, slab coins, stock certificates, and books. Some coin supplies were donated by Bryon J to be sold for coin club proceeds.

Door Prizes: Both door prizes were won by the new members.

The meeting was adjourned.
