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.
OUR NEXT MEETING IS AT THE VIENNA COMMUNITY CENTER!!! Sorry for shouting, but we wouldn't want you to end up going to the wrong venue! Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 10th, at 7:00 pm. The Vienna Community Center is located at 120 Cherry Street SE in Vienna, VA. The meeting room is upstairs in the Upstairs Interior Rooms L4-L6.

The meeting will include an open session for bourse and camaraderie. There will be a raffle for a 2018 Australian Kookaburra. For Quiz Time, we will conduct a grading contest with 5 or 6 random coins. Everybody grades the coins, and the best grader wins a prize. There will be a Youth division as well, with another prize for that winner. Bring your loupes, glasses, magnifiers! Tthere will be an auction of approximately 40 coins.

Our next monthly meeting is February 13th at 7:00 p.m. at the Reston, VA Community Center. Hope all members can come! Based on the recent interest we had at the Vienna Show we expect to have a decent number of visitors and possible new members. This month we will hold an auction of 22 lots consisting of some U.S. coins, some World coins, some proof and mint sets, and a numismatic book. Please check our website at http://www.FairfaxcoinClub.com for an auction lot list. We will hold a raffle for an 1873 Belgian 5 Fr. Also, plan on testing your numismatic knowledge once again with some coin trivia! As always, there will be time for bourse activity, so bring something to share with other members. We had a lot of buying & selling activity at the last meeting at the World Coins section! And don't forget, our following meeting is March 13th, where our very own member, and numismatic author, Roger Burdette, will conduct an educational session. Roger would like to get some feedback from the members for any topics you would be interested in discussing, so please come to the meeting and share your thoughts.
Our next meeting is January 9th, 7:00, at the Reston Community Center. This month we have no auction but instead a training that will be taught by our very own Jason Tungli. The Bourse will be open by 6:45 pm for those who arrive early and the meeting will start at 7:15 with general announcements and updates from our recent Board Meeting. We will then proceed into Jason's presentation on Coin Conservation followed by Q&A. We will close with meeting with our monthly raffle. Here is a little teaser from Jason regarding his presentation... "Don't clean your coins!" You often hear this piece of advice, but what does it really mean? At the January 9th club meeting, come learn the ins and outs of numismatic conservation and find out the proper way to keep your coins looking their best."
THN posted a journal entry in The Hawaiiana NumismatistBack in the year 2014, I made an inquiry to NGC Support about the grading/encapsulation of medals listed in their listed numismatic bibliography titled Hawaiian Money, 2nd Edition, by Medcalf and Russell. My "coin club" medals were rejected (see images). I now see that Hawaii related coin club medals (Maui coin Club and Hawaii State Numismatic Association (HSNA))are now being graded! (see image below) Great!!! I made this video about a year ago related to my completed Maui Coin Club silver medal set. Enjoy!
