Waterloo Coin Society seeking designs for 60th anniversary

The Waterloo Coin Society (WCS) is seeking design proposals for a commemorative wood in honour of its 60th anniversary next year.

Members are invited to submit a reverse design prior to Aug. 31 to allow the club’s executive enough time to select a winner and have the finished product on hand and ready for distribution before the end of this year. Each renewing club member will be entitled to one specimen.

The wood’s obverse will feature the WCS logo as it has appeared on three previous issues. The winning design should be one that is appropriate, includes the dual dates “1959-2019” and references the club’s 60th anniversary.

“Thanks to everyone who helped out at the Cambridge mall promo day and the Cambridge Coin Show, both of which were a huge success. I have received nothing but positive feedback from dealers, members and the public. These events reflect well on Waterloo Coin Society contributing to our continued growth and success,” wrote WCS President Ben Dettweiler in the April 2018 club newsletter.

“Looking ahead to our 60th celebrations next year, I would like to remind everyone that we are accepting design proposals for a special commemorative wood. If you have a design, you can submit it to me in person, or via email.”

To contact Dettweiler, email president@waterloocoinsociety.com.
