February Meeting – Special Guest Speaker

Our next general meeting will be February 8, 2019, starting at 7:00 pm with our auction, show & tell, and youth raffle, followed by our program presentation beginning at about 8:30. The presentation will be about 40 minutes long and will be followed by our drawing.

We are honored to announce that we will have Donald H. Kagin, Ph.D., of Kagin’s Inc., noted gold scholar, expert in ancient gold coins, and well-known author and auctioneer will be our club’s special guest speaker at our this meeting, presenting his innovative and entertaining program, “The Oldest Living Pioneer.”

Take a journey with the one man that experienced the famous Gold Rushes in the United States during the 1800’s; from the Carolinas to California, from Georgia to Colorado, including the Mormons and their role in the Gold Rush. Imagine that he knew about all of the coins that were issued from the gold discovered in these rushes and how they came about? The Oldest Living Pioneer tells the story of our nation’s gold rushes from a ‘firsthand’ perspective, live! Learn about the era that defined our nation with the world’s “Oldest Living Pioneer”, a one-man show by Donald H. Kagin, Ph.D./ Numismatics, the world’s leading authority on ancient and Pioneer Gold coins, well-known author and auctioneer. A one-act narrative accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation.
