President's Message - September 2023


September 2023

End of Summer 

     We are less than one month away from having our annual Coin and Collectibles Show at the Walnut Creek Elks Lodge on Creekside Drive. Larry Casagrande has all of the dealers ready to go and has reached out to the membership for help in setting up and tearing down the show. Let him know if you are available to help.  It will start on Friday, October 13th at 12:00 noon and finish on Sunday, October 15th at 4:00 pm. The conclusion will be marked with our fantastic coin show drawing. Admission is $5.00 for all three days. Please let all of your friends know about the coin show and please plan on attending.  


     Last month, we had Raul Ramirez give his presentation on the Mexican Peso entitled “Reales to Pesos”. It was very informative and insightful. He will be presenting it again at the annual CSNA / NCNA Joint Forum to be held on Saturday, November 18th at the Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum. We also had our quarterly coin auction put on by Bill Hickman and our regular coin drawing conducted by Dave Davis. Thank you very much Raul, Bill, and Dave.


     This month will mark our 781st meeting since our founding back in 1960. Exhibit and Display Night will dominate our September 21st regular meeting. This is where you, the members of D.N.S., can create an exhibit on a certain numismatic topic that is of interest to you and talk about it to everyone in attendance. There will be First, Second, and Third Place winner certificates handed out at the end of the meeting.  


     I’m finalizing the details on our upcoming Christmas party to be held on Sunday, December 10th. We will be accepting reservations starting at our regular October meeting. I’m sorry to let you know that the admission price will be going up from $30.00 per person. I’ll let you know what the final price will be soon.


     Please plan on attending this meeting. You don’t want to miss it. We will also be having our usual Show & Tell and coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from.  I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of you again. Please come and enjoy each other and our hobby! Please bring a friend along, if you can.


Until then, God bless,
