· Annual General Meeting and Display Competition
Meetings are held at the Abbey Baptist Church, Abbey Square, commencing at 7.00 p.m.
Christopher Collects is a new type of coin collector who uses Social Media as part of his hobby. He was so successful he was offered a job working for the Britannia Coin Company. We are expecting that some of Christophers followers on YouTube (up to 75,000 of them 😊) may turn up at the April meeting. Please point them at either me, Peter or Jawaid.
It is also getting close to the Annual General Meeting, when the committee is chosen by the members. Please consider joining the committee as we need new blood desperately.
This was the annual club auction. Highlights from the auction included a 1933 Wreath Crown and a 1997 set of Royal Mint Britannias that sold for a hammer price of £185 and £200 respectively. Sixteen different members purchased at least one item, from the ten vendors who put in lots and there were six lots of £100 or over.
In total, the sale totalled £2,480 raising £331-70 for the club. Thank you to all the people who helped the auction to run like clockwork, especially Martin, Ian, Jawaid, Peter, James and Henry.
