Our annual Christmas party was a great place to pick up a Christmas present. Typical Alaskans care little for things you cannot kill, gut, skin, and eat. The party was a good balance between food with flavor and nutritional value, and coins with beauty and historic value.
It was great to find Alaska seafood next to the ham and turkey on the banquet table. The salads were nice and of course there were plenty of calories among the desserts. In fact, in the end some of the dessert boxes made great containers for a piece of cake to take home.
There was a great variety of coins in the auction. Everything from a 1799/8 bust dollar in fine for $1350 to a 1976 quarter celebrating our 1776 independence in proof for $1. The biggest bidding battle among the 82 lots was for a mantle clock donated by good member Roy Brown. It had bright silver coins marking the hours bolted inside like a Capital Plastic holder. There were some wonderful coins in the auction including a deep cameo Morgan dollar and an ultra deep cameo gold $5 commemorative. Sets of coins were also in the auction as well as rare notes full of history and art.
The kids were in another room with a mother or two playing with toys. The only business mentioned was the Christmas coin show December 18th and 19th at the University Center and the availability of free tables. In (he end we accomplished our goal of providing an opportunity to have a merry Christmas time and, maybe, pick up a Christmas present.
Next meeting January 5th. 7 pm.
Board meeting was called to order at 6:45 PM by Secretary Larry Nakata.
First order of business was to ensure everything was OK for the last coin show of 2010 to be held at the University Center on Saturday (Dec 18th) and Sunday (Dec 19th). One loose end...advertising in the Anchorage Daily News. Member Mike Orr volunteered to have an ad placed for posting in the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday newspapers.
Agenda for January 5th membership meeting: Stan Mead will bring the refreshments for that meeting. No formal presentation planned...but rather a discussion with our club members as to what they would like to see as activities for Year 2011 by the Anchorage Coin Club. And...of course.....our club's monthly coin bullet auction.
Board then discusses details for the coin show planned for the Fur Rondy time period. Fur Rondy will occur from February 25th thru March 6th. Coin Show would either have to occur on Feb 26th/27th or March 5th/6th. Carl will look at availability of University Center for those two weekends. Board favored having coin show on February 26th/27th. Once availability and date is confirmed. Secretary Larry Nakata will then fill out and submit paperwork to have the event listed in the 2011 Rondy Guide. Paperwork must be submitted by no later than January 7th.
As there was no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 7:35 PM with everyone wishing each other a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.....Larry Nakata/ Secretary.
Next meeting Dec. 15th 6:30pm.
By far most of the people who attended the Anchorage Coin Club's December coin show were looking for stuff for their stockings. And we had it. Everything from slabbed ancient bible coins and a choice cameo proof Barber half dollar down to a BU communist Russian ruble and old, used Lincoln cents.
We were, unfortunately, missing a few things. Someone wanted a 1966 special mint set and someone was looking for Alaska Mint medallions but they were not there. Many people, however, left with great stocking stuff as well as a few very nice presents and they were happy they found us.
The show was full of opportunity. Not only was it a good opportunity for people to pick up stocking stuff it was a fine opportunity for members to sell extra coins and a very fine opportunity to promote a coin business. The club took care of advertising, provided tables, provided display cases, and did all the setup. If we had more participation we could have probably got the coffee stand in front of the show to stay open the whole time we were there.ED.
