U.S.-based Nashua Coin Club wins ONA ‘Club of the Year’

The Nashua Coin Club, founded in New Hampshire in 1960, has won the Ontario Numismatic Association’s (ONA) 2020 “Club of the Year” honour.

ONA officials presented the award for just the fourth time this April, when the association hosted its first virtual convention. About two dozen people attended the club delegates’ meeting that kicked off the festivities – the first virtual convention hosted by a major Canadian numismatic organization – on April 9. In helping to choose the Nashua club as “Club of the Year,” Scott Douglas, the ONA’s immediate past president, noted the group has been “a fantastic asset” to the provincial association.

“When we had our in-person conventions, you guys were always there to help out and lend a hand, and nobody could ask for more than that,” said Douglas, who – after serving his full four-year term – was replaced as president by Sean Sinclair at the group’s April 11 annual general meeting.

The Nashua club is one of about 50 chapter clubs affiliated with the roughly 260-member ONA.

Kevin Winn, the Nashua club’s secretary-treasurer, called it “a wonderful honour” at the April 9 meeting.

This April’s award presentation marked the first time a U.S. club won the ONA’s Club of the Year honour since it was launched four years ago.

Past winners include the South Wellington Coin Society for 2017, the Stratford Coin Club for 2018 and the Waterloo Coin Society for 2019.
