Vancouver Ancient Coin Club
The Vancouver Ancient Coin Club is intended to provide those interested in ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine or Medieval coins with an opportunity to discuss and learn more about ancient numismatics.
No longer a pastime limited to the wealthy nobility, the study of ancient coins and the history and artistry of their making is now available to everyone. While more sources of information on ancient coins are available now than ever before, there is no substitute for the direct exchange of information and ideas through a gathering of persons with a common interest.
Meetings are usually held on the second or third Sunday of each month, from 2-4 pm, at the McGill Branch of the Burnaby Library. The Library is at 4595 Albert Street, Burnaby, near Willingdon Ave. and Hastings St.
