Club APRIL Changes

We regret to inform you that our 50th Anniversary Celebration, potluck, Officer Installation, and Medal Design Contest that were scheduled for April 10 have been postponed to Friday, May 8 due to the Santa Clara County Shelter-in-Place Order. Should this Order be lifted prior to April 10, we will notify Club members via email that these events are back on for second Friday in April.

Many events are being cancelled. Before attending a coin show, it is advisable that you check to confirm that it is still on. WESTPEX, scheduled for April 26 in Burlingame, and the Meet & Greet with Kim Kiick, ANA Executive Director HAVE been cancelled.

March BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge Workshop

Cupertino Coin Club Officers, Emile and Suzy, ran a successful BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge Workshop Saturday, March 14, 2020 to a small group of Scouts in Los Gatos, despite Emile’s computer crashing, the rainy weather, and COVID-19. The four Scouts and their parents all learned something about numismatics and began a lifelong interest in the hobby. We look forward to seeing them again at future club meetings. One Scout and his mom already attended Friday’s meeting the night before. We thank BSA Troop 2, Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council, for the use of their meeting Hut.
