60th anniversary wood offered by WCS

The design of the Waterloo Coin Society (WCS) 60th anniversary wooden token was chosen at a recent executive meeting.

Club members had until the end of August to submit their designs for the diamond anniversary wood. A design by WCS director Karen Dailous was chosen at the winning concept before “a lively discussion resulted with some creative input and minor modifications,” according to the society’s monthly newsletter, which is edited by Peter Becker.

The final design is limited to a quantity of 400 and “is anticipated to be ready for distribution by the December meeting,” wrote Becker, who added Calgary, Alta.’s Canada Wide Woods will be producing the woods in the standard 42-millimetre format.

Similar to the society’s Canada 150 wood, a special version of the 60th anniversary piece featuring the anniversary design in red will be set aside “exclusively for members in good standing for 2019.” All remaining woods are produced in black on both sides and are being reserved for promotional purposes.
