      Melbourne Numismatic Society Meeting

      8:00 pmBox Hill Arts & Community Centre, 470 Station Street, Box Hill, VIC

      Check the Melbourne Numismatic Society Website for details. The syllabus for this meeting will be a speaker talking on “A Numismatic Tour”. Many of us take holidays in places associated with numismatics. A collecting theme is to collect an item from places you have visited. This could be Australian tokens with issuers in the various cities and country towns you visit. Come along to enjoy the talk and also bring any items associated with your travels or new acquisitions to show. Coffee/tea and a really good biscuit are available after the formalities.
