The LSCC was founded in 1973 to encourage, promote and dispense numismatic knowledge on Liberty Seated coinage. Co-founder Kam Ahwash was the club’s first president and editor of the club’s periodical, The Gobrecht Journal. Current club President, co-founder, and Gobrecht Journal Editor, John McCloskey, has served for the past 38 years.
The 1.53-inch diameter, 1-ounce anniversary medal mimics the obverse and reverse design of the Gobrecht dollar. It will be struck in silver and gold versions.
The silver medal has a plain edge with medal turn and is available to non-LSCC members for $80 each including postage in either proof or satin finishes. The club is accepting orders through Nov. 30, 2012.
