Did you know?
Our Ocala Coin Club members have published articles, given programs and talks at local clubs, FUN Shows, and ANA shows. We have won exhibit awards at coin shows and have members who have held multiple offices of the ANA. We are proud of our numismatic participation!
Our hobby thrives on our participation!
The programs and activities of numismatics are only as successful as we make it. Our hobby has many diverse interests and possibilities for exploration, so we may choose the activities in which we engage. To be an entertaining endeavor, we must participate. No one has to do everything, but we can all do something to share our interests, collections, and numismatic pursuits. So look over the shows, clubs, and events and invest your time where you can share your hobby with others!
Our next bus trip is coming soon! It's Thursday, July 11, 2019. We hope to fill the bus to go to "Summer F.U.N." in Orlando! The cost is $10 per seat - for door-to-door service; and a day for shopping at the coin show. Will you go?
More information coming later, but mark your calendar for this trip now!
The Ocala Coin Club enriches the collecting experience of coin and currency collectors ranging from novice to experienced numismatists. We offer educational programs presented by knowledgeable collectors at our meetings, and auctions to help our members build their collections. Our community is built through bustrips to regional coin shows, carpools to local coin shows, and social gatherings to build relationships with each other.

Re: Thank you Ocala Coin Club for ANA table at your 36th Annual Coin Show 2019
The Ocala Coin Club www.ocalacoinclub.com held their 36th Annual Coin Show on February 7 – 9, 2019 at the Motel 6 Conference Center in Ocala, FL. A special thanks to Chairman Rich Selvar, Club President Mark Trout and the officers and members for providing a table for the American Numismatic Association ANA www.money.org.
Our location was right next to one of the registration tables. This helped us sign up or renew 12 members for the Association. Thanks to Dealer Harry Eck, from Crystal River, FL for making a $25, 501© (3) donation to ANA for the shipment of the coin show kit. For visitors who stopped by our table we answered questions regarding numismatics and also gave out some free stock certificates and other items.
Through excellent advertising locally and nationally the three-day event brought in 832 visitors. Besides the advertising 500 or more post cards are also sent out to the previous year’s attendee. The sold-out bourse featured 60 Dealers at 50 tables. We talked to several dealers who had a table and they said they were kept busy throughout the show and sales were very good. Security for the show was excellent and no problems were reported. Everyone who attends has free admission, and they also receive a special elongate and wooden money especially made for this event. Hourly silver door prizes were also given-out (everyone received a ticket when they registered). Any young collector who entered received a free bag of coins. A literature table was also set-up and coin publications along with other information was passed out for free. An all gold raffle was also held.
The food vendor had free coffee for the workers up until 10:00 AM. The food they serve is always great and reasonably priced. The club had over 30 members assisting at registration and raffle sales. Many of them helped with set-up and breakdown. The show is already sold out for next year’s event. The club is a 50+ year member of the ANA and is a member of the Florida United Numismatists – FUN www.funtopics.com. We look forward to next year’s Ocala Coin Club show which will be held in this same location on February 6, 7 & 8, 2020. Thanks again, John and Nancy Wilson ANA National Volunteers
