The May meeting is set for Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the Vienna Community Center in the upstairs meeting room 201. Non-members are invited to come check us out, so feel free to invite someone.
For May's meeting we will feature 2 different Educational Talks. First, our very own Member Arthur Aron will talk on Obsolete Notes. Specifically, he has been collecting obsoletes that have coins depicted on them. He has a great slide show prepared and looking forward to learning more! Next, Peter Tompa, who serves as executive director of the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild, will discuss such rules and regulations and what collectors should know before they purchase coins abroad. Foreign cultural patrimony laws have already impacted ancient coin collecting in the US. Recently, there have been moves to extend import restrictions based on such laws to Spanish Colonial coinage.
We are adding a second raffle, a $5 1986 U.S. Eagle MS69 NGC ( 1/10th of an ounce of gold). Tickets are $10 and a maximum of 30 tickets will be sold, so get your ticket early. ***limited to 2 per member*** We will also have our monthly raffle for a one ounce .999 Silver Australian Funnel-Web Spider coin.
