Calling all YNS, calling all YNS!

Club Exchange | CoinsInHK

Hello fellow numismatists!Recently Oobie and Big Nub Numismatics have set up an online club of sorts. I've joined the club and have nothing but positive things to say about it, and I suggest all of the YNS to join as well. I highly encourage anyone to participate- most stuff is coordinated on discord. Here's an invitehttps://discord.gg/hz86pP . Hope to see you all there!Sincerely, Theo(On behalf of Oobie and Nub, the founders.)

After Action Report: the "Better Late Than Never" LKNS Auction

Club Exchange | Mr_Norris_LKNS

On Monday, August 31, the Legacy Knights Numismatic Society held its annual Student Members Only Year End Auction for our 2019-2020 school year members.Normally the auction would have happened in May towards the end of the school year, after the students had earned a school-year's worth of Knights Payment Certificates, or KPC, for their participation, to use for bidding in the auction. However, the pandemic threw a wrench in that when the school closed its doors for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Fortunately I was able to stay in touch with our members and parents through email, Facebook, the school e-newsletter, telephone, and the US Postal Service. Our student members were given a summer extension to complete projects normally due in May, which allowed several to earn LKNS medals as well as additional KPC for the auction. Activities were logged and KPC awarded, and auction items were catalogued so the students could plan their bidding.

New Year for the Legacy Knights Numismatic Society

Club Exchange | Mr_Norris_LKNS

Our young numismatists' club operates during the academic school year, so our club "new year" starts each September. Although we communicate a little over the summer, the active portion of our club year endswith our Awards Ceremony onthe last day of school, which is usually near the end of May. Our members earn medals during the school year for achieving certain levels of participation, and we present them before the entire elementary school. This is a great way to recognize our dedicated members, and serves as a great recruitment tool for the next school year.

Scenes from the First LKNS Medieval Moneying Event

Club Exchange | Mr_Norris_LKNS

If you've been reading my series on the making of a medieval style club coin, we discussed all the background research, design selection, inscription translation, processes, technology, and costs that go into such a project. As you could easily conclude, a project like that can take a lot of effort and time before you even begin striking coins. But the result was a beautiful, truly medieval looking coin for our club. This was an incredible, rewarding way to learn about the minting process, particularly for hammered coinage. The real fun for our club was in actually getting to take part in making them!

The Fairfax Coin Club

Club Exchange | Jonas's Coins

Untill last October, there were no coin clubs that existed in Fairfax County, Virginia, (which is where I live), even though there are more than 1.1 million people that live there. Well when I went to the Virginia Numismatic Association show in September of 2017 and saw a flyer, that said “NEW! Fairfax Coin Club!”, I decided to go to their first meeting in October of 2017. Well today I have wrote this blog about how the club is doing.

Join A Club, Join PAN

Club Exchange | Mokie

The most recent ANA blog, published today, advocates a number of things to include getting involved with local clubs. One affiliation I am very proud of is my affiliation with the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN). Pan has two large shows each year in the Spring and Fall and also sponsors, at each show a day devoted to our YNs. There are freebies and educational forums and a youth auction on Saturday. I have already volunteered to take over the YN outreach going forward. I was a YN at one time and remember the many kindnesses I experienced at coin shops and from older folks giving me coins. If you live in Pennsylvania and have not joined PAN, please consider it. If you attend the National Money Show, look for me at the PAN booth. or in the exhibit area.

Does anyone know of a virtual club

Club Exchange | user_8093

Does anyone know of a club that is meets online? I am disabled and it is pretty much impossible for me to travel to a club meeting so I am looking for a club that offers online meetings. A follow-up to this question is if there is anyone interested in forming such a virtual club?
