NEXT MEMBERSHIP MEETING NOVEMBER 3rd:
COLLECTING BRONZE OF THE ROMAN EMPERORS
The U.S. mint is working on a plan to release 5 ounce silver bullion coins with designs from the "America the Beautiful" program. The 3 inch diameter coins will have the edge incused with the metal content.
The date they become available has not been set but it is said that striking has already begun. They will be .999 flue silver and mintage has been set at 500,00 per year. That is 100,000 for each of the five designs.
The designs will be exact copies of the quarter designs. That includes the lettering for the denomination twenty five cents. That will give the 3" diameter, 5 oz. silver coins the legal tender value of twenty five cents. Although it is not recommended, you could spend them as a quarters.
Last month Stan wrote about the extravagant ANA show he went to in Boston. How they had a wide range of dealers, places to eat, education opportunities, and other things to buy. What he did not write about was the dealers who did not want to talk to you unless you wanted to spend thousands of dollars. He also did not mention the thousands of dollars it took just to get to the show.
The weekend of October 9th and 10th our club had its second annual PFD coin show at the University Center. We had dealers selling a wide range of numismatic items. From Tim selling choice key coins as well as a complete set of mercury dimes including the '16-D and Frank selling everything from Roman denarii to some of the nicest notes in Alaska. John and Loren were there to answer any coin questions - they even did some appraisals. There is a fine restaurant upstairs, a sandwich shop down the hall, and a mil grocery store at the end of the mall. Besides all that there were sports card dealers set up on the other side of the mall and the Museum store was having a "going out of business" sale. There are 2 ATMs in the mall and all the free parking you need out in the parking lot where they were having a harvest sale.
You know all the dealers they are members of the coin club so they are all easy to talk to. There were coins for sale at the show you could not buy anywhere else especially at the low-overhead prices. Channel 2 even showed up with a camera crew and put President Burke on the news. You could have been on TV. You could have gotten in on some of the great deals on bullion coins and proof sets.
You want to be at our club's coin show this coming Fur Rondy.
Door Prize: Set of 2004 P, D Nickels in display holder "The Westward Journey-The Peace Medal". Won by Mike Gentry.
Membership Prize: Set of 1999 Denver Mint uncirculated state quarters. Won by Carl's son, Cash.
Coin show slated for Oct 9th (Sat)/Oct 10th (Sun) at the University Center was discussed. President Tim Burke made a clarification on the September Board minutes. Based on clarification, motion was made and seconded to waive the $10/table fee to the Collectables Group as they were handling the advertising for the coin show at no cost to our club. Motion passed unanimously by the membership. Volunteers were asked to help set up at the University Center on Friday/Oct 8th at 6 pm. Tables and cases were still available for the show as of the membership meeting.
No new business was discussed.
As there was no formal presentation at the meeting, the monthly coin auction was held. Following the coin auction, membership meeting concluded at around 8:45 pm....Larry Nakata/Secretary.
Last: ORUE - EURO: The base denomination of the European countries that formed a union and started issuing coins and notes in 2002.
Board meeting called to order about 6:30 PM by club president Tim Burke.
The meeting could be called the hernia monologues. Jack Vinson was up from his sunny home in the states for a dangerous hernia surgery. We tried to allay some of his fears by telling him of our own hernias, it was surprising how many of us had hefted too much at one time or other.
We did, also discuss coin shows. A tentative date was set for the Rondy show. And a show just before Christmas was considered. Some board members thought that if people wanted to set up for a show we should back them. A vote will be taken at the next membership meeting.
Mike Orr was in town also and he was at the board meeting. He agreed to give us a presentation on collecting bronze coins of the Roman Emperors.
It was also agreed to have a potluck at our next membership meeting, Stan said he would bring chili dogs, and Loren will bring potato salad.
The meeting adjourned at 7:30 P.M.
Next board Meeting November 17th.

You are probably a numismatist...
And you should belong to the Anchorage Coin Club.
STORAGE FOR CASES AND TABLES NEEDED
Recently the club purchased new, folding tables. These are light, durable plastic tables that fold into a square about 4 feet by 4 feet. They have handles and are very stable when stacked. Carl has been storing them at the University Center in a locker upstairs. Now that Carl is leaving the Center he has had to give up this locker.
We need a place to stack these tables. There are 10 of them and stacked the would be less than 4 feet high. We just need a dry place to put them.
In addition to the tables we have 8 display cases. These are in boxes and would stack very well on top of the tables.
These cases and tables are critical to us having coin shows. They allow us to provide coin dealers with inexpensive space at our shows.
Help us have more coin shows with more coin dealers by giving us a place to put these cases and tables.
See Carl if you have space
