TIMMINS -- Coin collectors flocked to the Timmins Coin Club’s monthly meeting, this time with a special presentation on the Poppy Coin in recognition of Poppy Week.
The club invited hobbyists and interested community members to attend, learn about the history of the commemorative coin and show off their own collections.
The Royal Canadian Mint produces specially marked coins with the symbolic flower to honour Canada’s armed forces veterans. It released a new four-leaf design for 2019, which Coin Club President Kevin Montgomery says adds an extra spin to the meeting.
