Good News DNS!
In person meetings continue June 17th!
June 9, 2021
Welcome back DNS members and guests! Can you believe that this year is already half over? Time seems to be just sailing by at warp speed. This coming coin meeting will be our 3rd in person meeting since the Covid-19 restrictions were lifted. Also, it is our 755th meeting overall since 1960. Your coin club has a rich history of education through coin collecting and fellowship.
At last month’s meeting, Lloyd Chan was unable to present his topic on the 1909 Lincoln and Indian Head cent set so our program director, Bob Luna, stepped in at the last minute. He presented his topic on classic US silver commemorative half dollars from 1892 to 1954. It was better to see it in person versus the ZOOM software.
At this month’s meeting we will be taking reservations for our annual July BBQ which will be held at the Concord Museum on Saturday, July 17th, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Carol from the museum said we could stay until 7:00 pm if we like. The price is $20 per person and includes BBQ chicken, tri tip, Dave’s award winning cookies, and all the fixings. We will also be having a presentation by Gene Berry on the history of the Carson City mint. Please check out the events section of our website for more info.
Topic for June 17th: My long awaited presentation on the America the Beautiful Quarter Series will be shown at this month’s meeting. You may ask why talk about a current coin series rather than older ones like Morgan silver dollars or Mercury Dimes. This series, which comes to an end this year, represents coin collecting at its foundation; getting the general public interested in looking at the various coin designs out there and setting them aside to enjoy at a future date. Each coin design is truly a work of art! Numerous National Parks and other national sites across the country are depicted on these quarters where people can go to, learn from, and enjoy the great outdoors. It is my hope that you enjoy this presentation which has taken me a very long time to research.
I hope some of you took advantage and were able to order the new 2021 Morgan and Peace silver Dollar coins from the US Mint. I would love to see them in the fall during our Show and Tell session.
We will be having our usual Show & Tell and coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from. We will also have our On-Time and Membership coin drawings as well. I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of you in person again. Please come and enjoy each other!
Until then, see you,
