Brandon Coin Club focuses on education
The Brandon Coin Club has been dedicated to education since it was formed in 2006. We do four successful shows a year, our next show is November 01, 2014 held at The Elks Lodge 800 Centennial Lodge Dr. just off SR 60 Brandon Fl.
We use the proceeds from the dealer donations to offer scholarships’ to the A.N.A. summer seminars. We donate books coin and other items to libraries and youth groups and we give free informational seminars to any non-profit or community group requesting one. We do programs for at least 4 schools a year for the “Great American Teach-in” and have helped 4 Boy Scout troops’ members earn their coin collectors merit badge. We also have special programs for our own youth members. Our current President is a 17 year old numismatist and the Recording Secretary is 16.
To top that all off we have a well-educated numismatist, Bill Jones who does an excellent job every month giving an educational presentation to the club at our regular club meetings every third Tuesday of the month.
