The Willamette Coin Club held its first coin photo contest this week. There were 14 creative submissions. The photos depicted modern, Colonial, and Medieval coins. Tokens and currency were also featured. Several young people submitted pieces for the competition. Meeting attendees voted by Zoom chat for their top three photos. These are the winners.

There was a tie for third place so the club awarded both submissions.
About 30 people attended the Willamette Coin Club’s September 17 online meeting. We watched a fun, informative presentation about proof sets. Ricky, a young numismatist, did a lot of research and put together a great slide show.
Afterwards the attendees voted on the club’s first photo contest. Watch this space for an announcement about the winners and their photos.
The club met online for its August meeting. Club member Frank presented about Fugio coins, the first official coins of the United States. We gave away a few coins and discussed club business. If you are interested in joining us for a future, remote meeting, please get in contact and we can send you the details.
