Our "Mission Statement" is to promote interest in numismatics through education of our members. Encourage members to conduct research on history and geography as it relates to numismatics. Provide a forum for discussion and exchange of numismatic knowledge through regular meetings and a club newsletter. Support the hobby of numismatics and to cultivate social relationships among its members.
How the Mid-Island Coin Club all Started!
On a cold December 11, 2001, nineteen individuals gathered at the Pizza Hut restaurant in Nanaimo, BC for hot food and to discuss their shared passion of collecting coins. Before the evening was over, sixteen memberships were signed, three of those being husband and wife memberships. Thus began the Mid-Island Coin Club (MICC). Ten years later, in 2011, the club has grown to fifty-five members on the books, with twenty-five to thirty members regularly attending meetings. The members range in age from 12 years to eighty-plus years. Collectors’ interests range from ancient coins (Greek and Roman) to all years of Canadian, US, and world coins (Britain, Europe, and Asia) as well as errors and varieties of paper money and coins. Club members possess an impressive knowledge base and can answer questions on just about anything. The MICC holds meetings on the second Thursday of each month. These meetings also serve as a social event and dinner can be ordered for those who wish. Activities discussed may include any combination of the following: trade, buy and sell, show and tell, guest speakers, and the ever popular, Great Mid-Island Coin Auction, an event not to be missed!
