Area coin collectors get ready!

The Indian Territory Coin Club is hosting the fourth Annual Oklahoma’s Unique Coin Show on Oct. 14 and 15 at the Southeast Expo Center Room 103 in McAlester. Admission is free to the public.

“We are emphasizing education this year big-time,” Show Chairman Gary Parsons said.

Some of the educational programs offered are: History of gold and silver, types of gold and silver, where to buy gold and silver, storing gold and silver, selling gold and silver and more.

Parsons said the classes are geared toward new people who are thinking about getting into coin collecting as a hobby.

America’s Precious Metals Exchange, headquartered in Oklahoma City, donated books to give away while supplies last.

The Indian Territory Coin Club is a non-profit organization that is about educating the public.

“We are also hoping to attract new members to the club,” Parsons said.

The club meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Western Sizzlin in McAlester. Membership is $10 a year.

“This show is unique because it takes place in the Choctaw Nation and the heart of Oklahoma’s early coal mining industry,” Parsons said.

The hours of the show will be Friday Oct 14 from 12 to 5 p.m. and Saturday Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Educational programs are free of charge and are to be held during the event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
