*April Meeting Again Virtual*
The April Meeting of the Northwest Coin Club will be conducted on Zoom at 7:00 P.M. CST on April 8, 2021. The Zoom invitation is expected to go out on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. Watch for that invitation.
The April Program "Collecting Ancients: An Introduction to Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Coins" will be presented by club member Bill D.
Bill will explain the basics of collecting ancient coins. You’ll learn something about the places and people that struck the coins and you’ll get an overview of the denomination systems they used. And he will put the coins into their historical and cultural context so that you can begin to truly understand the coins and what they tell us about ancient history and society. He will review the basic reference books you’ll want to obtain, and provide some tips on where to shop for ancient coins. This presentation should give you enough information to enable you to confidently start your collection of ancients. Soon, you’ll be hooked on ancients and a vast new world of numismatics will open up for 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!
