from the President

Happy New Year! January is usually the most exciting month of the year for numismatists, and this year is no exception. All of the successes and growth of our club could not be possible, however, without your continued support. I would like to thank each and every one of you—I am extremely grateful.

I remain very proud of our accomplishment during the January FUN Convention here in our hometown!  We made several agreements for our Lecture Program,  we enrolled several new members, sold 70 specimens from our Club Medal Program, participated in the FUN Coin Club Get Together luncheon and meeting, we donated one Tampa Coin Club 60th Anniversary medal to the ANA Money Museum [graciously accept by Mrs. Kim Kiick, the Executive Director of the organization], etc. I think we made very clear to all present at the show, collectors, dealers and public in general, why you should join our club!

Our last gathering, was an enjoyable evening full of friendship and camaraderie. We had 50 present, including guests "checking out" why our club is making waves everywhere! With a record of 12 new members in just one month, we certainly hope 2016 will be another banner year for the Tampa Coin Club.

ANA Judge, Mr. James Zyltra, gave an spectacular lecture about "Primitive Money of Africa", its origin, history. He traveled in different regions of the African continent in the 70's collecting all type of material related to this topic. It was found by everyone present amazing, many questions were asked. Several samples where shown to all present, many expressed avid interest about this topic. It was better than expected!

Another excellent auction by our own, charismatic auctioneer, Mr. Omeara. Our monthly raffle included silver Morgan dollars, Peace dollars, State Quarters Mint sets, etc. The monthly attendance prize was awarded to Mr. Richard Vazquez.

Now we must prepare for the next monthly meeting. The lecture for that evening will be conducted by club past President Mr. Richard Fee, titled "Hard Tokens of the Jackson Era", an always puzzling and, interesting topic for many collectors.

Tampa Coin Club is offering in partnership with American Numismatic Association, FREE ANA gold annual membership [$28 value] to any adult individual that joins our club before October 2016, on the basis of first come, first served. Hurry up and join us today!

Reminder, we are having our next general meeting on February 9th, same place [Forest Hill Park Center], same time, better yet bring your spouses, your children, friends, neighbors, grand-kids, etc., we always have a great time! We offer to KIDS under the age of 13 FREE membership!

Please remember to bring and wear your club badges to our monthly meetings. Ah, don't forget you have a chance to win a "Walking Liberty Silver Eagle" for attendance prize. .... all we need is you, to enjoy all this and have fun again. Don't be a "no show"  your club needs your participation, cooperation, involvement and presence.

Warmest thanks for all of your hard
work and outstanding
Best regards,

Joseph Crespo
