New York Numismatic Club President Jerome C. Haggerty writes:
I was delighted to see George Cuhaj's piece concerning the New York
Numismatic Club's history and centennial medal. The books are available by
mail directly from the Club.
They have been well received, and in fact I am bringing a few copies to Ireland next month for the meeting of the Numismatic Society of Ireland and the Dublin coin show.
The book is 437 pages, 6' x 9' format, hardcover, loaded with photographs
(including every NYNC Presidential Medal) and was limited to 150 copies.
The price is $125 + $10 for postage. Make checks out to the New York Numismatic Club.
The book may be ordered by mail from:
c/o JEROME HAGGERTY
408 ATLANTIC AVENUE
BROOKLYN, NY 11217-1704
The Centennial medals are sold out. They were issued as bronze singles or silver and bronze sets with matched numbers. Struck by Medalcraft Mint of Green Bay, Wisconsin, the strike was limited to 70 pieces, 27 of which were silver, the remaining 47 in bronze. The silver/bronze matched set available was priced at $450. The medals are 2.5" in diameter, the bronze weighs
4.25 oz., the silver (approx.) 5.0 oz.
Thanks for the update. I'm curious to see the book, and would be happy to publish a review. Note that this is NOT the same book discussed in our August 30, 2009 issue. That book is One Hundred Years of Solicitude: Collecting by the New York Numismatic Club. It's a 45-page softcovered catalog of a recent exhibit by that name at the American Numismatic Society in New York. The work is not a history of the club, but rather an illustrated compilation of many interesting numismatic items collected by members of the NYNC.

That's a fantastic medal by Eugene Daub. It's quite interesting with three prominent numismatists portrayed on it. I often sat next to one of those portrayed when I attended NYNC meetings. QUIZ QUESTION: guess which one. [Hint: I'm not that old!]
