Local Coin Trivia

Sacajawea helped Lewis and Clark, is featured on U.S. dollar coins and is immoralized in a historic statue found in Portland - the first statue of a woman unveiled in America!

In 2014, we have not scheduled more pre-planned scout workshops because of the exciting 2015 ANA show coming in March 2015. It is worth the wait if you can join us there. As always, please drop me a note () if you'd like to work on the merit badge in the Pacific Northwest and we can help.

In 2015, the ANA National Money Show will be in Portland in March 2015! We will feature Boy Scout and Girl Scout workshops on March 7, 2015 - organized by our same Pacific Northwest collectors! For that reason, we will not do our regular workshops in October and December this year (2014) unless specifically requested. We would encourage attending the National Money Show in March 2015 since it is a rare opportunity to attend such a large show in the Pacific Northwest. Download ANA Workshops March 2015 Portland Preliminary FLYER for information on the Boy and Girl Scout workshops on March 7, 2015.

In Washington in 2015, there will be a Boy Scout coin collecting merit badge clinic at the Boeing Employee's Coin show held at the Kent Commons (525 4th Ave. N, Kent, Washington) during both days of the show (January 17-18, 2015). On May 2, we will have workshops for Boy Scouts (and Girls if requested - email me at ) in Tukwilla at the annual PNNA Spring Convention (Tukwila Community Center 12424 42nd Ave. So., Tukwila, WA).

A good place to read more about coin collecting is this numismatic and coin collecting introduction. Thank you to Jacob and his fellow Boy Scouts in upstate New York for suggesting this link.
