Future Numismatists!

Sixty-six Scouts registered and attended our BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge Workshop last weekend at CoinExpo Santa Clara! Wow! This far-exceeded our expected attendance! Scouts arrived early, looked around the show, sat in on the hour-long workshop, then met with one of our nine wonderful Merit Badge Counselors. Most Scouts were well-prepared! Many Scouts completed the Merit Badge today. Some have a few requirements yet to complete. Some will be meeting with one of our Merit Badge Counselors in the near future to go over their requirements. All were invited to attend next month’s Cupertino Coin Club meeting on October 11 which will be Youth Night, run by our Junior President and Life Scout, Griffin. The Guest Speaker for that night is a Youth Member and Life Scout, Andrew, who will talk about Australian Currency and Coins.


Our nine wonderful Coin Collecting Merit Badge Counselors: Kyle, Suzy, Todd, Don, Brian, Gran, Granville, Alex, and Emile.
