Our February 26th Ocala Coin Club
Program WAS EXCEPTIONAL !!!
Alexandra Zieman and her Dad, John, brought a most exceptional program to our club meeting in February. Not only was the oral presentation informative but the power point and the hand out with both text and photos gave us material for further reference. What truly made this memorable were the items in the display cases! Seeing materials from Robert Patterson, LL.D., served as the Director of the U.S. Mint from January 1806–July 1824, and his son, Robert Maskell Patterson, M.D., who served as Director of the Mint from May 1835–July 1851. Documents relating to the Pattersons were signed by several of the signers of the Declaration of Independence! The locks, glasses, and other items on display brought comments and conversations for much of the question time between the program and our auction. We appreciate John and Alex bringing their display and the program for our February Meeting. Thank you, to the Ziemans.

Ocala Coin Club Annual Awards
We are very pleased to announce that the President's Award for 2018 went to JOHN DARR, club member who has faithfully served the club as our auctioneer for many meetings in the past years. He is one of our con dealers, but his value as a member and auctioneer has been recognized for his willing service and knowledge at our monthly auctions.
In memory of our former President we also annually present the C.L. Wyatt Award. The C.L. Wyatt for 2018 went to John Miller, the Secretary of the Ocala Coin Club. John helped us win awards at 2018 (second place) and 2019 (first place) at the Winter F.U.N. shows in the Club Exhibits division. John not only keeps our minutes for both club and board meetings, he also volunteered to serve as Librarian for our club book library. From John's numismatic experience, he also contributed the bulk of our "Website Library" that is a page here on our website.
To each of these volunteers we express our appreciation for their efforts and are very proud to honor them with a plaque to commemorate this honor.
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.

Everyone is welcome to attend the FL Token Society meeting this Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Freedom Public Library in Ocala, FL. The meeting will start at 10:00 A.M. Here are the directions to the Library. If you are coming via I - 75 take exit 350 (old 68). Then go Southwest on Highway 200 (also called College Rd) to SW 60th Avenue. Go East on SW 60th (CVS should be on your right as you start to go down SW 60th). Go about 2.2 miles to SW 95th Street. Go North about one block and the library should be on your right. The library has plenty of parking. When you enter the library, we meet in the room on the right.
At about 11:45 A.M. we will go to Sammy's Italian Restaurant (pay for your own meal) for lunch. Sammy's is located in the vicinity of SW 60th and Highway 200. It is not required that you go to Sammy's for lunch – but everyone who comes enjoys the meal and comradery. The meeting room door will be locked when we leave. When everyone returns from Sammy’s the meeting will reconvene. Because we have to be out by 2:30 PM we will go through the minutes quickly and show and tell will be limited because of the time restraint. Also, the important donor auction will move along quickly. We are sorry for this inconvenience but finding a new date that would give us until 3:30 PM would have been impossible. Though this is an incon-venience we don’t think it will affect the meeting to much.
If you have never been to a Florida Token Society meeting, this is an opportunity to meet fellow (and lady) collectors, talk about the token or medal that got away, and maybe acquire that token (or sell some duplicates) that you have been searching for. A show'n'tell period is conducted after the business meeting concludes. Bring an item for the show'n'tell period. After show'n'tell an auction of donated items is held to help defray the cost of the meeting room. The FL Tokens Society gives a check to the Freedom Library for the use of the meeting room If you have some duplicate tokens, medals or - that you want to donate for the auction it would be appreciated. If you bring some items for the auction you will be recognized as a donor in the minutes.
The Florida Token Society meeting on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. Dues are $7.50; our newsletter is mail twice a year.
Thank you, John and Nancy Wilson, Ocala FL
