Medicine Hat News - - ENERTAINMENT/LIFESTYLES - Ron Sch­midt

The fall coin and stamp show is to­day at Hig­don Hall, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be col­lec­tor coins (which are coins that are spe­cially cased) on dis­play. Some of these ex­am­ples would be the $3 Square beaver coin, glow in the dark 25-cent coin, di­nosaur coin, bird series coins, Su­per­man coins, snowflake coins, Canada 150 coins and sets and much, much more. These types of coins make ex­cel­lent Christ­mas gifts. In cir­cu­la­tion coins you will also find the 1925 nickel, 1926 far nickel, the four types of the 2006 toonie, both styles of the 2012 loonie and toonie. Also there will be Cana­dian bills, bills with re­place­ment notes, for­eign bills, Cana­dian Trade dol­lars, to­kens, and ro­man coins. On dis­play (but not for sale) will be a 27AD (Pon­tius Pi­late) coin, at the RJ Coin booth. There will be a good se­lec­tion of large pen­nies, all the small pen­nies from 1920 to 2012, in­clud­ing both the mag­netic and non- mag­netic types.

For the peo­ple who are look­ing at for­eign coins, the ju­nior mem­bers of our club will have a good se­lec­tion to pick from, and priced rea­son­ably. The pro­ceeds from these sales go di­rectly to the kids for their own sup­plies. Please come out and sup­port the kids. Also we do ap­pre­ci­ate all do­na­tions to the kids.

If you have a child who may be in­ter­ested in the ju­nior mem­ber­ship, please stop by the club ta­ble and reg­is­ter their name. You may also want to pick up sup­plies for your coins or stamps. For the stamp col­lec­tors there will be ta­bles with Cana­dian, U.S., and in­ter­na­tional stamps, in mint, used, and also first-day cov­ers.

You may not know the worth of some of your coins or stamps, so this may be a good place to bring them and ask some­one what they are worth. Large col­lec­tions may re­quire ad­di­tional time out­side of show hours.

We en­cour­age peo­ple to come and have a look, even if you do not need any­thing. It is a good way to pass a lit­tle time and learn some his­tory of our coun­try. There will also be door hand­outs, and door prizes. Just re­mem­ber this show is spon­sored by our lo­cal Medicine Hat Coin & Stamp Club.

Col­lec­tor's Cor­ner is con­trib­uted by the Medicine Hat Coin & Stamp Club. For ques­tions or com­ments about coin or stamp col­lec­tion email med­hatcsc@live.com.
