NEXT MEMBERSHIP MEETING IS THE CHRISTMAS DINNER:
DECEMBER 9TH - THE BIG COIN AUCTION


ALASKA'S DENALI PARK QUARTER

   

    As part of the "America the Beautiful" quarter program the U.S. mint will be issuing a Denali Park commemorative quarter in 2012. The design for the quarter has already been all but set in stone. In 2003 congress set up the "Artistic Infusion Program" to improve the designs on all these new coins (and notes) being issued. They work with the CCAC (citizens coinage advisory committee) to create pleasing designs.

    Four designs for the Denali quarter made it through the design and elimination process.

 

    This design got the most votes from the committee. Though it was recommended that the sheep be made a bit larger.

    Once all the adjustments are made and agreed to all that is left is for the Secretary of the Treasury to put a stamp on it and send it to the mint.

 

 

TBD ON 5 OUNCE BULLION COINS

 

    The mint is having trouble finding 5 oz. planchets so the release date for the large "America the Beautiful" silver coins is TBD (to be determined).

 

1922 Gold Certificate graded VF25

1902 Bison Note graded VF

1884-CC GSA Morgan Dollar NGC MS62

 

 

    One of the highlights of our Christmas dinner party is the drawing of raffle tickets. This year we have some particularly nice prizes. You could win a note from when they had gold coins at the bank. Or your ticket might win you a note from when the buffalo roamed the planes or, maybe, a Carson City silver dollar in original GSA packaging.

    Get your tickets at the party just before the drawing and they will be at the top of the barrel. The more tickets you buy the better price you get per ticket and each ticket is good for one of the prizes.
