Scott Douglas, president of the Ontario Numismatic Association, will be one of four speakers at the fifth annual California Numismatic Seminar hosted by the Northern California Numismatic Association (NCNA).
The one-day seminar will be held on Sept. 15 at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum on 734 Marin at Capital in downtown Vallejo, Calif. The seminar theme is “Why Collect These?” and Douglas will be speaking about Hudson Bay tokens and medals.
Other speakers include:
- coin scholar and activist Dr. David Goya, who will speak on the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915;
- northern California coin dealer and show promoter Scott Griffin, who will speak on toned U.S. Morgan dollars; and
- exonumist William Hyder, who will speak on the “so-called dollars” of the western U.S.
“The theme offers a different perspective to collecting and numismatic enjoyment. While one might not wish or want to collect what one presenter offers, listening might ignite an option or something related,” said seminar moderator Herbert Miles, of Richmond, Calif.
NCNA President Dr. Lloyd Chan added: “In the past five years, NCNA has made its annual seminars a major informative and interesting presence in organized numismatics.”
