RCNA 69th convention under way in Halifax

Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA) members began arriving in Halifax, N.S. on Monday for the 69th annual convention.

While the convention officially starts on Wednesday, several RCNA members are participating today in arranged tours of Nova Scotia,  including a cruise on the Bluenose II and a tour of the Town of Lunenburg. Upon their return to the convention hotel — the Westin Nova Scotia in downtown Halifax — members will take in an early bird dinner at the hotel, followed by an evening of fellowship at the “Calgary House Pub”, sponsored by the Calgary Numismatic Society.

“This year’s convention is action-packed, with special events happening each day, from exciting tours, educational talks, a grading workshop, and many regional club meetings,” writes convention chair James Williston in the souvenir program. “The three-day auction has plenty of interesting lots for you to bid on and, hopefully, add an item or two to your collection. There is a wide assortment of dealers to visit in the bourse and explore the different treasures they have.”

Wayne Taylor and Albert LeGrow are co-chairs on behalf of the Halifax Regional Coin Club, which is hosting the convention. “We hope all participants enjoy our Maritime hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, and the charms of our historic city,” they write in the program. “We want the show and everyone’s time in Halifax to be memorable and enjoyable.
