The Pawcatuck Valley Coin Club is an organization founded in 1962 to promote numismatics in the Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island area and throughout Connecticut. Members meet on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 P.M. at the Stonington Arms Recreation Room located at Route 1, 133 S. Broad St. Pawcatuck, CT. The Juniors Roundtable begins at 6:30 PM, and the Bourse opens at 6:45 PM. The meeting begins at 7:15PM.
The goal of the Pawcatuck Valley Coin Club is to provide its members with a enjoyable environment in which they can enjoy sharing our hobby with other like-minded enthusiasts. We stress numismatic education and related topics so our members can take share, teach and learn about numismatics.
We encourage members every month to exhibit coins and currency to display with other members at our monthly meetings.
Groton Senior Center
On Saturday 16th July 2016 our club was invited to participate in an event at the Groton Senior Center. It was an Antiques Roadshow styled event called “What’s It Worth?” Judson Griffin #827, Larry Erhart #658 and Carol Young #739 helped folks with numismatic queries about their coins and giving valuations. Steve Garmon #766 and Dave Morrison #773 came to lend their support. Some of the more interesting items were a set of large US cents, an 1861 gold coin, and a 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cent which was carefully viewed under a microscope where all agreed the “S” mint mark was genuine. We answered lots of questions about our club and generally enjoyed the event.
