National Coin Week Gets Early Start
April 15, 2009

If you happen to be near Brockton, Mass., on Saturday and have a little time, you might stop by the main library at 2 p.m.

There is going to be a program presented as part of the upcoming National Coin Week observance.

National Coin Week, actually starts, April 19, but , hey, Saturday is Saturday.

Richard Hand, who is organizing the event with the help of three or four friends and two or three library employees, says kids 7 years old and older and adults will be most welcome. The program will last about three hours and some very nice freebies have been rounded up for participants, including a couple of free subscriptions to Numismatic News.

Hand says he has books, a special ANACS slab and other things to give away.

National Coin Week runs April 19-April 25 and other hobby volunteers will be conducting special events and putting on displays all around the country. Check out the activities in your area.

Hand says he will stop by the library every day next week to answer questions and to tend a special exhibit he has put together.

Unfortunately, I am not nearby, so I cannot participate, but if you are, drop by and celebrate National Coin Week with Richard Hand and his volunteers.
