The Nashua Coin Club of New Hampshire is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. To commemorate the milestone, it has created a club medal and elongated coin.
The medal is modeled after the New Hampshire Colonial copper, of which there is question if any true examples exist. The obverse bears a pine tree and “American Liberty,” while the reverse bears a harp as was originally legislated in 1776. In addition to listing the club name and state, the reverse bears the dates of its existence and “50 years.”
It is available in antique brass and antique copper versions. Each measures 1.5 inches in diameter. Medals can be purchased as a set of two for $15 plus $2 shipping per set.
The pine tree and “American Liberty” are also featured on the anniversary elongated coin. It is available for $1 each plus $1 for shipping, regardless of quantity.
Send order and payment to Nashua Coin Club, P.O. Box 3003, Nashua, NH 03061-3003.
Established in 1960, the club says it is the longest running established coin club in New Hampshire. It meets on the second Wednesday of every month. Meeting activities include discussing current events, holding coin of the month presentations and displaying items in show-and-tell sessions. Members also bring items for sale and trade. Regular membership dues are $10.
