The Ocean County Coin Club was created in 1970 by six sailors and one marine who wanted to share and expand their knowledge of coins. The original meeting location was at Lakehurst Naval Airstation. We currently meet at the Ocean Fire Company #1 in Point Pleasant Beach on the corner of Arnold and St. Louis Avenues (next to the post office). We strive to share our knowledge and admiration of numismatics with monthly meetings, show and tells, in-house auctions, and occasional guest speakers. We also offer a Young Numismatists Club for children ages 6-17. They meet at 6:30 and our regular meetings begin at 7:30. New members are always welcome.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to our members and their families. We had a very successful year and looking forward to another great year in 2020.
So as 2020 is almost here
and the Ocean County Coin Club is entering our 50th year
Let us appreciate its long history
The reason for its success is no mystery
We like coins, yes we do
But the real reason is the members who always come through
We applaud them all for their work and devotion
Many more years will create quite a commotion
So keep our 50th Coin in your collection
And wear your Pin proudly
Next year will be busy
We will communicate loudly
Pitch in when you can. It helps us run smoothly.
And remember those original six Sailors and that one Marine
They created something special out of one small dream.
Our first meeting in 2020 will be on January 16th.
WELCOME BACK TO MEMBERS WHO HAVE HAD SOME HEALTH ISSUES
Wishing you the best and hope you stay on the mend. Great to see you again John V, Paul F, Toni and Hugo
THANK YOU TO ALL VETERANS WHO HAVE SERVED THIS GREAT NATION
The Ocean County Coin Club honors our club veterans and thanks them for their service. We honor: Jim M, Dolly H, Renee B, Ernie D, Bill M, Harry O, Walter P, Richard W, John L, and Stanley D.
Thank you to everyone who attended our show. We had over 200 people enjoy the coins, currency, tokens and other collectibles of the 21 dealers present. In addition we had several of our Young Numismatists create interesting exhibits which were voted on by show participants to determine who earned first and second place prizes.
Please see our photo gallery to see the many pics taken at the show.
Thanks to Jeff T. and Jim M. our YN Program finished the year strong. Several YN's presented Show and Tells, the auction involved coins and paper notes from around the world and longtime member and past president Kari B. spoke about Canadian silver 25 cent pieces and broad struck error coins.
The Club elders are very grateful for the knowledge and initiative of YN Mathew T. for establishing a Google Classroom account. YN homework will now be posted online. YNs can receive more info at the meetings regarding access. This will be a great tool for the club and will enable greater participation and improved communication for the YNs.
Thanks to the generosity of our collector members and loyal dealers we have now collected over 2,000 cents and we will be needing even more of all grade levels. The goal is to put together and slab a certified set of all grades in order to maintain a grading program for our YN's to study, discuss, and learn from at each meeting.
All YN's are encouraged to bring in their Indian or Lincoln cents and their albums to the meeting.
New members are always welcome. The YN meeting begins at 6:30 pm.
We are very pleased to announce that our club's 50th Anniversary Coins and Pins are in. The design celebrates our history and longevity; and they are beautiful!
