First Hamilton Coin Club meeting early next month

For the first time in about three decades, a coin club is planning to meet in Hamilton, Ont.

Organizers Robb McPherson, Alan Roy and Len Trakalo – all prominent members of the Ontario Numismatic Association – co-ordinated the feasibility of a re-invented Hamilton Coin Club, whose inaugural meeting is slated for Jan. 7, 2019, at St. Michael’s Anglican Church on 1188 Fennell Ave. E. Anyone interested in coins, medals, tokens, paper money or other numismatic material are invited to attend. The doors will open to the public at 6:30 p.m.


Hamilton is “a city whose collectors have had to branch out to other clubs outside its boundaries,” said McPherson. “It has been my goal for a few years now to get something started again in the ‘Steel City.”

The geographic centre of the Golden Horseshoe, the Greater City of Hamilton includes not only Hamilton but also Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Flamborough, Dundas and Glanbrook. Altogether, its population exceeds 720,000.

Organizers chose the first Monday of the new year to avoid any conflict with other club meetings with a two-hour distance and are expecting a large turnout.

If you are interested in becoming a charter member of the Hamilton Coin Club, contact McPherson at; Roy at; or Trakalo at
