Speaker, Lloyd Chan

“A Brief History of the Trade Dollar”



Welcome to our June meeting we will have a new speaker tonight, but he isn’t new to the hobby or the bay area. Lloyd Chan is a retired school teacher and lives up north of us. He is the web master for CSNA and helps to promote our hobby and local bay area shows in Northern California. Be sure to come to our meeting and listen to an interesting talk on “A Brief History of the Trade Dollar.” Lloyd has come to many of our general meetings with his side kick, Michael S. Turrini. Lloyd has done show and tell and brings a wealth of information on his collection and ancient coins. Lloyd is an excellent speaker, so you don’t want miss his talk. We hope to see you all there.

Also, be sure to bring smaller dominations of cash to make it easier on our auction chair to make change. We are still looking for an auction chair, if interested; contact someone on the SJCC Board.

Please take note that there is to be no business of any kind during the programs. Also talking when programs and speakers are presenting are prohibited. There is a break to conduct any business you might have with a dealer or member.  Repeat offenders will be asked to leave the meeting.

We will have an Auction, Show and Tell, Refreshments and a Drawing towards the end of the meeting.  See list of drawing prizes below.   We also ask that everyone help with the clean up of the room and putting chairs away.
