Hi Morne' I would like to attend. I don't have much expertise in grading but I enjoy the hobby of collecting and numismatics to the point where I consider myself knowlegable.

Regards Robert.

Morning,

Seems like I missed this one. 

Only become a collector at the beginning of last year, and I would like to attend the next meeting if possible.

Maybe we could even start a whatsapp group with great finds/sharing information etc..

Regards,

Stefan

Hello everyone 

I have tentatively booked Saturday 18 September from 3 to 4 the afternoon at my house in Durbanville. 

Please let me know if you are available. 

We will have two short talks by Adrian Jordi (15 minutes) and David Flack (5 minutes) respectively.  

Adrian will talk about the NGC Registry that is free online coin collecting platform where collectors display and organize their coins and compete for best sets. (Adrian have won various “Best Sets” categories in the past and collects both South African coins and bank notes) 

David will demonstrate to us how a high-end scanning machine works for testing the metal content of coins (and other items). If you have any coins you wish to be tested, please bring them along. 

We will then have only 1 agenda point and that will be to set up a committee to formally establish the Society. 

There will also be a small display of coins that circulated at the Cape of Good Hope in the olden days as well as a book and magazine collection relating to South African Numismatics.  

I will be able to accommodate up to 20 people so please let me know in advance who wish to attend. I will then confirm by sending you my physical address in Durbanville. Remember the date being 15H00 to 16H00 on Saturday 18 September and all attendees will be asked to wear masks and obey the Covid rules.

 Kind regards

 Pierre Nortje

Hi Pierre

I tip my hat off to you for your efforts in generating (dunimas) interest in, and upholding the passion of Numismatics.

It's with disappointment that I will not attend this current meeting, but look forward to doing so in future.

regards Robert

Afternoon Pierre,

Well done for taking on this great initiative and one which is sorely required.

I hope you get a great turnout!

I would love to become to a member in the future although as I am based in KZN would probably not be able to physically attend meetings but would look forward to getting a newsletter/minutes or something similar.

Sincerely hope it is a success!
