We appreciate any news of club members who are ill, hospitalized or pass away. Please send an email to the club address . We seek to keep our members informed. Thanks for your help in keeping our "Sunshine Program" working.
We have an update: Rose Selvar, having had knee replacement surgery in March, fell upon going home. She broke her ankle and had to have additional surgery. She is out of the hospital but in a rehab center in Oxford. Yes, it was the ankle on the same leg as the knee! She is off the foot for 8 weeks; and in therapy to help the knee following surgery.
Our April 24th Ocala Coin Club meeting will feature a fascinating program about our fourth and sixth U.S. Mint Directors, Robert Patterson and Robert M. Patterson! Alex and John Zieman will be with us from Tampa Coin Club (and West Hernando C.C.) to present a look at the men who reviewed, approved, and were responsible for the early and middle 19th century coin designs. Their influence affected so many of the designs we recognize, love and respect from the 1800's. Come hear this father-daughter team and enjoy their program!
We will continue our new door prizes that include an American Silver Eagle, a proof set, a copper round, and an educational prize of a subscription to a numismatic publication or membership in F.U.N. or the A.N.A. There is always the opportunity to win the Treasure Chest just by being present when your name is drawn. And if you wish to help the club offset the cost of our meeting room, and have some extra dollars for the auction, you may purchase tickets in our 50/50 drawing! Be sure and greet people when you arrive - somebody may just be the right one to give you another prize!
We appreciate all of you who have renewed your membership in the Ocala Coin Club! We still have a few to go, but we have 122 members as of our March 27 meeting!
John Miller gave the answer to the NOTY (Numismatist of the Year) question: The only coin produced at all 7 U.S. mints was the $5 (half eagle) Liberty Head gold! That's 10 points for all five who answered the question before the meeting started.
