Florida Paper Money Collectors - Next Meeting this Saturday, January 25th, 2020

​This organization meets at Tony Roma's Resturant on International Drive in Orlando at Noon on Saturday, September 28.  If you like currency, stocks, and other numismatic paper, this a great place to get an education from other collectors from all over the state!  The luncheon is ordered (your own tab) and then a "show and tell"  with time for questions and answers follows.  Try meeting with this group (there are neither dues or membership fees) just an opportunity to share with other paper collectors.

We've been cancelled!

The Ocala Coin Club February

Show is cancelled.  The Ocala National Guard Armory is in renovations.  We're cancelled.

We express our appreciation to Chip Davis for arrangements to rent The Coleman Center from the American Legion for our 4th Tuesday meetings for 2020.

We also express thanks and appreciation to the VFW Post who offered to rent us their post for our meetings.  The club expresses their appreciation to the Board for searching for affordable meeting places for both monthly meetings and for our annual coin show.  We anticipate an affirmative answer from the Ocala National Guard Amory for our February show that is currently undergoing a roof repair.  We await their completion of repairs for a new location for our February 6-8, 2020 Ocala Coin Club Show. 


We express our  Prayers and good thoughts to Karl Stroessner as he has been diagnosed with cancer.  Ellen, his wife, let us know he spent many days in the hospital in December and has not received an optimistic diagnosis.
