The annual Jersey Shore Coin Show and Exhibits, produced and sponsored by members of the Ocean County Coin Club, is slated for Sept. 12 at the Laurelton Fire House on Route 88 in Brick, N.J.
Thirty tables of coins, paper money, medals and tokens will be available for visitors to buy, sell and trade with dealers.
“Over 300 attended last year’s show and we expect the same this year,” said incoming club President Dennis Berube. “Gary Catlin, our youth director, will greet youngsters attending the show and sign them up for a treasure hunt.”
Children will also have the chance to search through a pile of cents to fill folders for special prizes. Attending youth will receive free coins, foreign bank notes and wooden nickels.
The club will have seven numismatic exhibits on hand for visitors to view and vote for the winner of the Charlie Licata Best of Show award. Now deceased, the award was named for Licata’s dedication to the club’s exhibit program for more than 30 years.
Show attendees will receive handouts and a wooden nickel commemorating the event. Hourly door prizes and a raffle for gold coins will also be held.
Show hours are 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
