The Ozarks' Coin Club has been actively monitoring the local reopening rules set forth from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department. Since the rules still are limiting the size of group gatherings, the Board voted on May 14, 2020 to suspend the June meetings for both regular club meeting as well as the Golden Eagles meeting. This decision was not taken lightly, but due to the current use by the Discovery Center as a day care for Healthcare and First Responder workers we did not feel that we could adequately sanitize the area for our use or theirs.
The Board also discussed the yearly trip to St. Charles. It was decided after a lengthy discussion that this trip should be canceled as well to help protect the health of the members.
Youth members, Mr. Guy has been working hard to find a way for you to get your assignments. Please be looking for the assignments in the Flying Eagle, and on the Youth Page on this site. Once the assignment is completed you may email him your completed work, his contact information is on the side of this page.
The Board plans to meet again through a Zoom meeting on June 11 to discuss next steps forward, and determine if we can meet in person for a July meeting.
Youth member of the Ozarks' Coin Club Stephanie, author of the YN section Stephanie's Pretty Penny, gave a presentation at the beginning of the March meeting about her penny collection. She spoke about how she got started with her collection, what steps she took to grow her collection from looking through a large random jar of pennies, narrowing her search to a few targeted pennies, and taking the search to coin shops and various coin shows around the state.
Stephanie has nearly completed her collection of pennies, and is only looking for a few of the harder to find pennies that are more expensive. While she remains on the lookout for those pennies, she has now turned her collecting sights on Olympic Coins.
