Cambridge show draws hundreds

Organizers of the Cambridge Coin Show, hosted by the Waterloo Coin Society (WCS) in March, called the 32nd annual event “a resounding success” thanks to a substantial turnout plus a strong volunteer presence. Show chair Brent Mackie estimated at least 390 people attended the one-day show, which also drew support from 18 WCS members who volunteered between two and 10 hours.

“The numismatic community seems to have mostly shaken off the pandemic and turned out in large numbers to our show, like several others recently,” Mackie, who’s also the WCS treasurer, wrote in the club’s April newsletter. “Our many advertising methods seem to be working too as multiple guests mentioned hearing about us in Canadian Coin News, the radio, Facebook and by word of mouth.”

The WCS also collected cash – $113.20 altogether – for the Cambridge Food Bank while adding another $250 from the show’s proceeds plus a second donation to the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association.

Next years show will take place on March 9, 2024, at the same venue, the Cambridge Newfoundland Club.
