October Meeting

The Willamette Coin Club met on October 15 by video conference. We held three coin trivial quizzes:

  1. World languages by Tim
  2. Numerals by Nicole
  3. Error coins by Jimmy

The winner of each quiz will be sent a free coin.

Coin Photo Contest

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.

Large Turnout for Club Meeting

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.
