                                          July 2009 Issue
The monthly Northside Coin Club meeting will be held on Thursday July 2nd, 2009 at 7
PM (doors open at 6:30) at the Cimarron Village Community Building in Broomfield, see
our web site www.northsidecoinclub.org for directions. The program for this month has
not been determined as this newsletter goes to press.
COIN of the MONTH – Foreign Coin (not Canadian). (If possible a higher grade, nice
collector coin, preferably un-circulated).
[The “Coin of the Month” works as follows. Bring one coin, of the type described as the
featured coin of the month, preferably in a 2x2 or flip. If you bring a coin, you will get a
ticket in the drawing and your coin goes into the pot. We then draw one ticket and the
winner gets the entire pot of coins that were featured.
SHOW and TELL – bring some interesting item from your collection that you would
like to show the members and give a quick (1 minute) talk on.
