The Coin/Collectibles Group was created for those members of our Club who enjoy
learning about or owning these miniature pieces of art which have been around
since their invention as currency, generally thought to be about 750 BC. Coins
are collected for a variety of reasons but most often for their individual
appeal based on factors such as history, society, beauty, rarity and, of course,
value. Our group provides topical information monthly that may also be of
interest to the Activities Club membership at large, such as coins for
investment purposes. In addition to coin collecting the group may also discuss
paper currency, bullion and other precious metals; as well as stamps and any other collectibles in which a member is interested.
Our group seeks the
participation of any member who has been involved in collecting, or has no
collecting knowledge at all but has the desire to learn more about our
nation's most popular collecting hobbies. It is estimated that about half of
all Americans have collected coins or stamps at some point in their lives, and many others
have collected ...something. What's your collecting obsession? Join us to show and/or tell about it.
