The Presidents Column

The Fur Rondy Coin Show at the Mall at Sears was a huge success! Ten new members were signed up, 7 regular and 3 YN's (Young Numismatists). Wynetta sold 56 raffle tickets and a large amount of cash changed hands! Over 100 coins were given away to young folks as well!

Special thanks to those folks that volunteered during their lunch hours to move the tables and display cases from the University Center to the Sears Mall and help set up!

Also, vendor advertising in the Newletter has off set the annual cost of publishing and mailing the newsletter!

Also, thanks to Bill Fivaz, Debbie (of Debbie's Old Coins), Greg Allen of Uncommon Cents, and Jim Long of J.E.L. Coins for all the donations for the club!

Recap of the March 18th
Anchorage Coin Club Board Meeting

Board meeting called to order at 6:30 PM by Club President Allen Nichols. Meeting held at Johnny Chicago Restaurant located near the University Center.

Correspondence reviewed.

With John Larson now elected as Treasurer, it will be necessary to make authorization changes in the club's checking account. At this time, bank records still show both Stan Mead/former Treasurer and Larry Nakata/Secretary with authorization to sign checks. John and Larry will get with Stan and get authorization changes made as soon as possible.

Results of Fur Rondy Sears Mall Coin show discussed. Ten (10) new members were added to the club's membership as a result of this show (7 adults/ 3 YNs). The consensus was that it was a very successful show. Some 56 raffle tickets were sold for the $2 & 1/2 U.S. Gold piece that will be raffled out at our club's Summer Picnic in July.

Board addressed inquiry by club member Bill Hamilton regarding interest in doing a coin show in mid-May at the main shopping center in Soldotna. Larry Nakata will check with Bill Hamilton on specifics for the coin show. At the April 7th membership meeting, details can then be made to members who may wish to get tables at that show.

John Larson: The April 7th raffle coin will be a 1887-P U.S. Morgan Dollar PCGS MS63 with rainbow toning on edge of coin. Price of raffle tickets: $5 per ticket, 5 Tickets for $20, 11 Tickets for $40.

Allen Nichols: All of the club's available "give away coins" and numismatic items were given away (at the club's table) during the Sears Mall Coin Show. We need to replenish supplies. Allen will ask members at April 7th club meeting to see if they can donate items to replenish (for future shows). Board then discussed and approved up to $200 for purchase of additional coins, numismatic items as needed.

For Tuesday, April 7th club membership meeting:

Next Anchorage Coin Club Board Meeting (on April 15th) to be held at 6:30 PM at the Sushi Yako Japanese Restaurant (formerly called the Yamato Ya Japanese Restaurant) located near the University Center.

As there was no further business to discuss, Board meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM......

The Coin Club Fur Rondy Coin Show was a huge success!

It was a busy two weekends at The Mall at Sears for the Fur Rondy Coin Show! 10 new members signed up, Wynetta sold 56 raffle tickets, and sellers were very pleased with the amount of business! Dan and Bud discovered some really good popcorn right next door! (Just thought I would throw that in). Anyway, here are some pictures that I posted on our Face Book page from the coin show.
