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.
Besides adding more members, we are up to 88+ for 2021, we are going to have a very unique program presented by Gary Ross. Gary will present the effect of culture on COIN MINTAGES that have ruled our mint production. This is an opportunity to learn some important detail behind the production of our favorite coins. Come join us for our meeting! Doors open 6:00 p.m. and meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
"It is never too early or too late to discover coins and the other delights that make up the world of collecting."
-Q. David Bowers
One hundred years ago, the U.S. Mint reintroduced the Morgan dollar after a 16-year absence. Later that year, production began on a new silver coin, the Peace dollar. And 50 years ago, minting of the Eisenhower dollar commenced.
Milestone anniversaries for these three large and iconic coins inspires the theme of 2021 National Coin Week, Money, Big & BOLD. The 98th annual event, held April 18-24, will focus on strong initiative in numismatics, and bold leadership and ideas depicted on coins and paper money.
Check the American Numismatic Association website (Money.org) for articles from The Numismatist, objects from the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum collection, video presentations, a young numismatist activity and more. Members can share their knowledge on the ANA Member Blog and answer daily online trivia questions for the chance to win new 2021 Morgan & Peace silver dollars, proof sets and other items.
ANA clubs are encouraged to register for educational & promotional materials, including the 14th Annual Club Trivia Challenge, Clubs answer 15 questions, and those that earn high scores will receive a prize and be enter into a drawing for a 2021 tenth-ounce gold American Eagle proof coin.

The Central States Numismatic Society Board of Governors has voted to cancel the 2021 convention, scheduled to take place April 21-24, due to ongoing concern for the health of the society's members and booth holders, and roadblocks in Illinois state regulations.
“From the moment of the cancellation of our 2020 event, the CSNS Board and our management prioritized what was going to be necessary to ensure the health and safety of our attendees as well as the viability of the event as we prepared for our 2021 convention,” said Central States President Mitch Ernst.
“While infection rates are dropping from winter highs, and vaccination rates are increasing, we do not have sufficient assurance that traveling and attending a large event can be done yet with adequate safety, or even allowed. We are as disappointed as anyone because we know what our convention means to the numismatic community," Ernst added.Convention Manager Larry Shepherd said, “We really had no choice. Illinois has limited gatherings to no more than 50 people for months, regardless the size of the space. It's not a matter of protocols or spreading out. They have set a limit per event that's fixed, whether we use 1,000 sq. ft. or 100,000.
Our monthly report gives the news! Nancy Wilson has been hospitalized recently but John has announced that she is discharged as of 3/10. It was good to see Charles Johnson at our meeting after his hospital stay.
These need our prayers and good thoughts as they recover. Keep us informed of any hospitalized or passing of members or spouses.
