The Other Coin: National Coin Week 2008

Join the Reno Coin Club and Nevada State Museum In Celebrating
National Coin Week April 20-26.  

The 85th annual National Coin Week, April 20-26, celebrates coin
collecting, children and world unity with the theme "Money Makes the
World Go Round" and
                          A TREASURE HUNT!

The National Coin Week challenges you to find five different numismatic
objects:

1. A coin with an animal
2. The oldest coin you can find
3. A coin from a different place (country or state)
4. A coin from the year you were born
5. A coin that's not a coin (token, medal, etc.)

Bring your coins to any of the coin stores April 20-26: Grand Gold Coins
(at the Grand Sierra), Southgate Coins (5032 S. Virginia), or Old Mint
Coin (across from the museum) or the Nevada State Museum, 600 S.
Carson St. Saturday, April 26 from 10AM to 3PM to be eligible for a local
and national prize drawing of numismatics treasures. There will be many
coins to complete your treasure hunt at the museum for free as well as a
quarter and dollar exchange for the new presidential dollars, Oklahoma
quarter, and the New Mexico quarter (if available). Can’t promise to have
every date.

National Coin Week is sponsored by the American Numismatic
Association, the nation’s largest non-profit educational organization
dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money
and related items. The ANA helps its 32,000 members and the general
public discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of
programs including education, museum, library, publications, conventions
and seminars. For more information about the ANA, call 719-632-2646 or
visit www.money.org.

Club members may bring their coins by or call and be entered in the
drawings. Encourage family members to participate. The drawing for
prizes is random. I will log the names, phone numbers, and coins to draw
for the local and national prize. Call me at 815-8625 with you coins if you
can't make it to the stores or the museum.

Numismatically yours, David Elliott
