For the first time in its more than 50-year history, the Chippewa Valley Coin Club (CVCC) will hold a show at the Brewing Project (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire) on Sunday, April 16 from 9am-3pm.

The club, which was founded in the early 1960s to promote numismatics – the study or collection of currency – has hosted an annual spring show just about every year for the public to attend. This year’s spring show is free to attend, and the club is inviting all from beginners to seasoned hobbyists.

“Most may not realize it, but there are a lot of coin and note collectors in the region,” CVCC member Darren Kirby said. “Technology is a great asset to collectors of all levels, but getting to meet fellow collectors and professionals can’t be replicated in the digital age.”

There will also be several giveaways throughout the show, which is also still accepting more vendors. Those interested in participating in the show should contact Lynn Engman at (715) 829-0695 for more details.

“This show is for everyone, even those who don’t collect, as it’s a way to see coins and notes that people would otherwise never see except in pictures,” Kirby said.

Head to the second level of the Brewing Project on April 16 from 9am-3pm to see the 56th CVCC spring show!
