Out of caution for public health and to mitigate any potential spread of the COVID-19 Corona virus, the Bel Mar Coin Show which was scheduled for Saturday, June 13th, 2020 has been cancelled.
Your patronage is greatly appreciated and we hope to see you at our show next year.
Club meetings are on hold until the club officers understand what the rules will be for social gatherings in the state of Maryland and Harford County. Please check back often to see what the status is. We look forward to seeing you as soon and as safely as possible.
Folks – Leadership has decided to move forward with the meeting tonight. If you feel comfortable coming we will be glad to see you. If you are not we look forward to seeing you at a future meeting. Leadership will be deciding how future meetings will be impacted so please check back here and on our Facebook page for updated information.
One of our Members shared these 2 Videos to enlighten us on just how much the Coin Minting Process has changed in the last few generations. The first video is from 1940 and gives an historical reference of coin making in the USA from its’ inception. The second video is from 2015 and shows the same Mint and the process of making Quarters today. You may be surprised at the difference!
