WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers is Debbie Kelley.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 958 subscribers.

This week's issue is being published nearly a day early - not necessarily
to make up for being a day late last week, but because my email access is
only sporadic this weekend.  Lots of good stuff this week, with a number
of items relating to Canadian numismatics and gold.

Research requests include web links for Michael Marotta's "Internet
Connections" column, and the proper use of borrowed coin images in
numismatic publishing.

Regarding an amusing typo in last week's issue, Bob Leonard writes:
"The "Chicano" Coin Club?!  In California?"   Oops!  Sorry I didn't
catch that one.  It's the CHICAGO Coin Club, of course.

Last week's question on coins with inscriptions in multiple languages
drew a number of great responses, including examples of coins with
inscriptions in up to fourteen different languages.

And what does the Poincare conjecture have to do with numismatics?
HINT: the mathematician who may have solved this century-old puzzle
has been awarded a rare and prestigious gold medal by Canadian sculptor
R. Tait McKenzie.  What's the name of the medal?  Read on to find out!
Have a great week, everyone!
