Coin Club Donates to Library

The Darke County Coin Club recently donated a generous check to the Greenville Public Library to buy sixteen new books on coins and coin collecting, plus seven DVDs on the subject. Some of the titles include Coin Collecting for Fun and Profit, The Expert’s Guide to Collecting & Investing in Rare Coins, Numismatic Art in America, and The Secret History of the First U.S. Mint. They are a “numismatic” club that enjoys learning about and collecting coins and currency.

The Club was started in March 1963 and today has 40 members. They meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Spirit Medical Transport, 5484 South State Route 49. Interested persons and new members are always welcome! There is an auction at every meeting. Come and take part in the “Hobby of Kings.”

The Club’s annual Coin Show takes place at Paws Bingo on Martin Street the 2nd Sunday of March from 10:00 to 3:00. You can also find them on Facebook for more information.
