    There were quite a few clubs that also celebrated major milestones in 2020 and like the ones mentioned in the article were not able to kick up their heels and celebrate in a meaningful and memorable way through special events and activities due to this global health crisis that has majorly impacted them.

    By the time the pandemic is declared ‘over’ and in person meetings and large gatherings are permitted to resume it may be too late to organize an event. Striking a medal or issuing a souvenir on the other hand could be done but is harder to sell and promote if you can’t peddle them at meetings or coin shows.
