Thomas P. Rockwell Lecture on Tuesday April 24, 2018.
An open Invitation!
Once a year the Boston Numismatic Society, the Collectors Club of Boston and the Currency Club of New England jointly sponsor a lecture by a leading New England numismatist to present on a topic of numismatic interest and open to anyone who would like to attend. This is promoted as both an educational and social event with refreshments available before and after the program. We are inviting numismatists from the New England region and beyond to join us for this event. The program will be held at Trinity Church 730 Main St Waltham, Massachusetts. The program will commence at 7:30pm. There should be sufficient on street parking and across the street at the Waltham Library (after 6 PM). For further information please contact William Harkins at 781-938-8167.
This year we are fortunate to have two notable New England numismatists giving presentations. Robert Moffatt a well-known token, medal and ephemera dealer in the New England area will present on the subject: “Charles Lang and Son, Diesinkers and Medalists, Worcester, Massachusetts” and Neil Musante, author of Medallic Washington, an exceptionally well done two volume work, will present on: “Francis Nalder Mitchell a 19th Century Boston Die Sinker” who was responsible for the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association (Paul Revere was one of the founders) Medals.
US MINT RELEASES COINS TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH
Rosa Parks became one of the faces of the civil rights movement on December 1, 1955, when she refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, AL, to a white man. Her courageous act cemented her place in American history by launching the Montgomery bus boycott and propelling the civil rights movement to the forefront of our Nation’s consciousness.
Canonized as a saint in 2016, Mother Teresa of Calcutta became a teacher after joining a religious order a year earlier. She became increasingly concerned by the poverty she saw around her and founded the Missionaries of Charity to fight it.
