How do you become a member of the National Numismatic Society of South Africa?

In Hern's 2014/2015 catalogue on page E (in the first few pages), there is an advertisement of the NNS as well as the required contact details. It is also possible (and probably better) to attend one of the meetings like the one advertised above, meet the people and somebody can organize you a membership form. The meetings we had at the Mint last year was very enjoyable and interesting topics were discussed. The dinner (the one where Pierre got his award) was also special and guests could overstrike a Griqua coin replica handed out during the evening. Typically there is a guest speaker at all the functions, so it is definitely worthwhile to attend.


As a final thought, however, the success of these "volunteer" societies depends on the contributions of the members or people who want to join. The actual "paperwork" to become a member is less important than attending the functions, growing the society by inviting your numismatic friends, volunteering to give presentations, writing papers, etc. In this regard it is nice to see on the BoB forum that there is suddenly a flurry of activity of new research and publications. It is these activities that will keep the numismatic societies healthy.
