The Ocala Coin Club of Ocala, Florida is formed as an educational organization promoting the perpetuation of numismatic study and fellowship for dealers, collectors, educators, and others interested in coins, currencies, and exonumia.
Be on the lookout for the Winder edition of FUN Topics as it arrives in early November. The Ocala Coin Club has received a mention in multiple articles and you will not want to miss it! If you are a F.U.N. member, be sure and watch your mail!
Please keep us informed of any club member who is hospitalized, who is ill, or needs encouragement for health or other reasons. We share the joys and griefs of life with our members - if you help us keep in touch. Email the club, or communicate with our Sunshine Person, Wade Harrell. Thank you!!!
We announce the deaths of two our club members this month. Steve Kidd suffered a fatal heart attack and his memorial service will be Monday, October 26, at the National Cemetery in Webster. Dick Heintz passed away on October 9 from cancer. We keep their families in our thoughts and prayers.
Ann Alphonso had back surgery and is recovering now at home. Rose Selvar attended our Board Meeting this month! Gary Hoctel was not well last month but now is home and improving. We hop to see Ray Wells returning to our meetings soon.
We compliment our sister club that meets just south of us, the Northlake Coiin Club, celebrated their 10th Anniversary on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.
We are saddened to announce the deaths of two more numismatists. Barry Ciociola, a North Carolina and southeast coin dealer, died October 17. Here in Florida, Steve Ratliff, President of the Florida Token Society (and former editor of the F.T.S. newsletter) died on October 16. Both of these men are a loss to our collecting community. We will miss them.

Jeff Rampi presented a grading set of 1928 Peace Dollars at our September 25th meeting. We appreciated his presentation and the knowledge he shared.
We anticipate our October 23rd meeting and the program will be presented by John Miller, our club secretary. He will help us get correct information on the difference of "Varieties" and "Errors."
Each month we provide three door prizes:
a U.S. Silver Eagle, a U.S. Proof Set , and an Educational Prize of a subscription to a Numismatic publication or membership in F.U.N. or A.N.A.
We also offer a "Mystery Greeter" - one of our members is quietly selected to greet the members and guests attending our monthly meetings. The person they select, usually by choosing a number in their own mind, will also receive a prize for attending. There is nothing like holding a door prize ticket and taking something home for free!
