Established in 1947, the Greater Jacksonville, Fla., Coin Club has marked its 70th anniversary with a Dan Carr Medal.
The obverse features Carr’s rendition of the Walking Liberty design, with a legend carrying the club name, “Seventieth Anniversary,” and a dual date. The reverse shows the city skyline and repeats the club name, along with “Established 1947” and the club motto, “Educate Preserve Promote.”
Official mintages were 260 in .999 silver (first 16 have matte finish; remaining 244 are satin finish), 255 copper pieces with satin finish, and 15 overstruck on copper-nickel clad Eisenhower dollar.
All were graded by ANACS and encapsulated using Daniel Carr’s Custom Moonlight Mint Signature Label.
Medals will be sold at the club’s 52nd annual show June 2-4 at Jacksonville’s Morocco Shrine Center and online at www.gjcc.net while supplies last.
