COIN COLLECTING

CHAIRMAN: Pete Pantina TELEPHONE: (201) 791-9604 EMAIL: pete30632@aol.com
SCHEDULE: Third Monday at 1:30 PM LOCATION: Church Ed Building
The Coin Collecting Group was created for those members of our Club who enjoy
learning about or owning these miniature pieces of art which have been around
since their invention as currency, generally thought to be about 750 BC. Coins
are collected for a variety of reasons but most often for their individual
appeal based on factors such as history, society, beauty, rarity and, of course,
value. Our group provides topical information monthly that may also be of
interest to the Activities Club membership at large, such as coins for
investment purposes. In addition to coin collecting the group may also discuss
paper currency, bullion and other precious metals. Our group seeks the
participation of any member who has been involved in coin collecting or has no
collecting knowledge at all but has the desire to learn more about our
nation's most popular collecting hobby. It is estimated that one in three
Americans have collected coins at one time or another.
