This year is the centennial year for the Chicago Coin Club. Wednesday evening January 9, 2019 the 1200th meeting took place in downtown Chicago. For those attending an
elongated 1919 Walking Liberty half dollar was given along with a business card size plaque commemorating the event.
Bill Burd provided appetizers at a pre-meeting reception. In place of a speaker the members were invited to bring in special numismatic items from their collections. It was a
special meeting that I am sure all attendees will remember fondly.
Attached are images of the souvenirs of this momentous event. Also the Chicago Coin Club is selling special 100th Anniversary "Red Books". Members who attend the
August 100th Anniversary Banquet will receive a copy of the 100th year Chicago Coin Club "Red Book" as part of their banquet souvenir package.
