September Meeting in New Location
Our temporary location these last few weeks is not available. Therefore, a couple of us worked to find a new location nearby. We will be using the St. Cloud University Extension in Plymouth. The address is 9750 Rockford Rd Suite 100, Plymouth, MN 55442. We will be using the entrance at the northwest corner of the building.
As per the requirements of our agreement with the University, who are following the CDC guidelines, those people joining us in person must wear a mask. These are their rules for our contract, and we need to follow them. So please bring a mask and wear it while in the building.
If you choose to not join us in person, we will also be hosting the meeting on Zoom. Please look for that link on Tuesday in an email from our Newsletter Editor.
Do you want to share your numismatic knowledge; but don’t know where to begin? We have you covered. At the September 2021 Northwest Coin Club meeting we will be brainstorming some ideas about how to create interesting, informative, and eye-catching exhibits?
Two award winning exhibitors, Pete Smith and Franklin Noel, will briefly discuss the thought processes that underlie the creation of innovative exhibits. All meeting attendees will then focus on fellow member’s collections as well as their own, and brainstorm ways in which a collection can be turned into a captivating numismatic narrative. Attached to this newsletter is a list compiled by our Newsletter Editor a year ago, when the club members shared with each other what they collect. Review this list and come prepared to contribute your thoughts and insights into how each member’s collection might be turned into an interesting, informative, or entertaining exhibit. Some may be inspired to go home and create an exhibit to display at the March, 2022 NWCC Money Show. Maybe even YOU.
Thanks for visiting the website of the Northwest Coin Club! Our local club has a rich history in the promotion of coin collecting and the education of Minnesota collectors. Founded in 1934, the NWCC is the oldest coin club in the Minneapolis - Saint Paul area and thought to be the 2nd oldest “regularly meeting” club in the entire country! Education is the main reason our club exists and we are committed to providing local enthusiasts with the best and most current information available. If you are a serious collector -or just thinking about becoming serious- joining a local coin club can be the best step towards enriching your hobby of numismatics. But don’t let the word “serious” scare you. The NWCC is comprised mostly of true hobbyists who collect coins and currency simply for the joy of it. We are not primarily focused on “turning a quick profit” from our endeavors, but on learning long-term strategies, best practices and especially on having lots of fun along the way. If you are a coin collector in the Twin Cities Metro area, we highly recommend you attend one of our monthly meetings and experience the camaraderie, fellowship and education offered by the Northwest Coin Club!
