The SaddleBrooke Coin Club is holding our annual coin show on Saturday, April 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Sonoran Room of MountainView Clubhouse. We will again be taking part in the Easter festivities with various educational displays and activities especially for kids. As an incentive to get youth interested in coin collecting, actual free money will be given to children in attendance! For the adults attending, there will be opportunities to view collections and interact with Coin Club members to buy, sell, or trade numismatic items.
Our local show precedes the 2023 National Coin Week being held this year from April 16 through 22. This year’s American Numismatic Association theme is “Our Money, Our Heritage, Our America,” and will recognize 2023 as the 100th annual/centennial coin week celebration! Events throughout the nation will feature how designs on U.S. coins and paper money commemorate notable people, events, accomplishments, and shared principles. A focus will be on how money tells the story of our nation and helps form our national identity.
