Notes for Next Meeting:


Hello Members and Friends of the Toronto Coin Club!

Reminder: Our next meeting is Monday December 11;
please note that this is a annual Christmas Holiday celebration.

Note: Holiday Celebration.

Once agian this year we have been invited to join the North York and Etobicoke-Mississauga Coin Clubs for a festive, all you can eat, dinner on December 11!
Our Ho–Ho–Holiday dinner meeting will be at Tucker's Marketplace, located at 15 Carlson Ct, Etobicoke, ON M9W 6A2. Map Link.

There is a regular TTC route 52WEST - 52A LAWRENCE WEST TOWARDS PEARSON AIRPORT that connects with the subway at both Lawrence or Lawrence West stations.
If you are taking this route you would exit the bus at the "Dixon Rd at Attwell Dr" stop.

We would be happy to see you there, so if you haven't made prior arrangements, just show up prior to 7:00 pm! The cost of the event is $38 which includes an all you can eat buffet and a drink of your choice. An excellent deal! And Draw Prizes Galore to boot!!
Please bring payment along with you if you haven't already pre-paid. Information Flyer.

 

We've had our current Bulletin format for a year now. How is everyone finding it? What suggestions do you have for improvements?

 

 

If we don't see you at the feast, I would like to wish you and yours a VERY MERRY HOLIDAY and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Also, I would like to thank you for your patience as we continue to be frustrated by the lack of available room in our usual meeting space at Metro Hall. A large proportion of the meeting space in Metro Hall has been re-purposed for other uses. I assure you that we are doing the best we can to minimize the effect on our club. I hope that you will continue to be flexible in the future months.

 

I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

 

Happy Collecting,
Henry

CANADA 150 Sesquicentennial Commemorative Medal


The Toronto Coin Club, Canada’s oldest continuing coin club, has issued a commemorative medal to celebrate Canada's sequicentennial anniversary of Confederation.

To celebrate this major milestone in the club’s history the traditional Toronto Coin Club logo design has been chosen for the obverse. This design was originally adapted from the badge of office that the founding president G. N. (Bob) Robillard had fashioned from a favourite tetradrachm, issued by Alexander the Great of Macedonia, in his collection. The central element of the medal design is a rendition of the obverse of the tetradrachm featuring Alexander as the allegorical figure of a young Herakles (Hercules) wearing a lion skin headdress, the lion’s paws tied at his neck. Encircling the tetradrachm are sun-rays. Supporting this inner design are two laurel boughs with the legend: TORONTO COIN CLUB at the top and EST 1936 / • at the bottom, completing the design features.

The reverse design consists of the Official CANADA 150 logo; with the legend: SESQUICENTENNIAL / SESQUICENTENAIRE / 1867-2017. It is a nostalgic reminder of the club’s earlier years as a leader in the numismatic hobby and it’s issue of a medal for the 1967 Centennial celebrations.

Master engraver Larry Colburn of the Mississauga Mint was commissioned by the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association to execute the CANADA 150 die.

The medal has been limited to a very small mintage; and is certainly a scarce collector item.

The 38 mm medal has been struck in two metals; Silver (1 oz. troy; .999 fine), and Copper.
