*** December, January and February Meetings will be at St. Cloud Extension in Plymouth and on Zoom***
The December Meeting of the Northwest Coin Club will be conducted in person and on Zoom at 7:00 P.M. CST on Thursday, December 9, 2021. The Zoom invitation is expected to go out on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, a date which lives in infamy. Watch for that invitation.
The club has reserved the St. Cloud University conference room for the next three months, December 2021, January and February 2022. The conference center is at the St Cloud University Extension, 9750 Rockford Rd Suite 100, Plymouth, MN 55442. (Highway 169 Frontage Road) The entrance is 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.
I am happy to reveal that this month’s program is titled: “Ask the Expert.” While interviewing several new members about their interest...It occurred to me that there was a lot of interest in things better suited for someone more familiar with "The Business/hobby" then I. That said, I recruited Jim Meyer (Dealer) to field questions from our members. I started out with the list below for a start. We will go through them one by one and Jim has agreed to give us his opinion. Feel free to come up with your own questions as there should be plenty of time for that. I will display the list of questions below. As always feel free to bring coins you'd like to show.
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!
