New FNS Meeting Location
We have a new official meeting site! We will be meeting each month at Trinity Lutheran Church, 3973 N. Cedar Avenue, Fresno, CA 93726. We will be in the Luther Hall which is a much larger and nicer place then our previous venue. Please come and check it out!
Next FNS Meeting
Our next meeting is on Tuesday January 9, 2024 at Trinity Lutheran Church. The address is 3973 North Cedar Avenue, Fresno, CA 93726, starting at 7PM. All members and guests are invited. The educational program is a presentation by James Johnson on Depression-era government tokens issued for use in Alaska. We will have the usual raffle and refreshments and will most likely offer a silent coin auction. Hope to see everyone there!
2023 FNS Coin Show: One of the Good Ones!
We completed our annual Fresno Numismatic Society Coin Show in October 2023 (10/27 & 10/28) which was presented at the American Legion Post 509 in Fresno. This show was organized and conducted by the Society and we are pleased with the results. We had larger attendance and sold more raffle tickets compared to our 2022 event. We signed up six new FNS members, hosted 18 Young Numismatists for the Coin Safari activity, and collected more than 100 new email addresses from attendees. Most dealers said they had a successful show and many expect to return next year. Thank you to all the FNS members and volunteers who supported the show, and thanks to the great people at American Legion Post 509 who really helped us out. Here's to an even better show in 2024!
FNS Laying the Groundwork for Our Next Show
The annual FNS Coin Show for 2024 should be Friday and Saturday October 25 & 26, 2024. The venue will again be American Legion Post 509, at 3509 North First Street, Fresno CA 93726. We will update this section as new information becomes available.
Please keep in mind these basic rules about our monthly coin auctions:
1) For our traditional auctions (conducted by FNS), the Fresno Numismatic Society reserves the right to pay sellers by check. Sometimes we may not have enough cash on-hand; in that case, our Treasurer will pay the seller proceeds with an FNS check. Non-member buyers may not pay with a check. Cash only please!
2) For silent auctions the buyers and sellers directly complete all transactions. If your seller accepts a check that is fine! FNS is not a direct participant in silent auctions.
