For Coin, Token, Banknote and Medal collectors in the Hornchurch, Romford
and Upminster area
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we have suspended our monthly meetings at Fairkytes Art centre for the rest of 2020. We are taking advice and hope to resume in the New Year - Watch this space!!
We welcome any communications and we endeavour to respond to any coin related queries from fellow collectors.
Also, please remember to submit any interesting articles for the newsletter (The Collector) which is still being published and keeping people in touch during these isolated times, to Brian Beresford.
Where to find us?
Our current venue is in Hornchurch at the Fairkytes Art centre, Billet Lane, RM11 1AX. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm. On the ground floor so there is easy access for the less agile.
Throughout the year there are a series of talks on a wide range of numismatic topics, auctions and competitions.
The Society publishes a quarterly newsletter title “The Collector” that contains reports of meetings, interesting articles, forthcoming coin fairs and future talks.
A number of articles that have appeared in past issues can be viewed online.
We have issued a number of commemorative medallions for our 25th and 40th anniversaries, and the millennium. Some are still available and all are mintages less than 100.
Read about the Poster Competition we won, some years ago, when £50 was offered to the club with the most inviting poster encouraging fellow collectors to join their local society.
The annual membership charge is £7 and at each meeting there is a charge of £1.
We have several overseas members based in Europe, Canada and Australia with whom we maintain regular correspondence. We often hear from them and they regularly contribute articles for The Collector.
Our Local Museum
Havering Museum tells the story of the people who have lived and worked in Havering. The story is told through text panels, images and objects. Please visit the museum’s web site.
