The next meeting of the Ancient Coin Club of Los Angeles will take place Sunday July 10, 2016 in the Community Room at the Sherman Oaks Galleria starting at 1:00 PM. The Sherman Oaks Galleria is located northwest of the intersection of the Ventura and San Diego Freeways at 15301 Ventura Boulevard (at Sepulveda Boulevard), in Sherman Oaks. Park in the Galleria parking lot (we validate your parking). The Community Room is behind the escalator on Level 1 of the rotunda, one floor below the cinema.

The July 10, 2016 meeting will feature a presentation by Dean Ruby and Roger Burry on “Summer Games - the Ancient Olympic Games in Coins”.

The July 10 meeting will also feature an auction so please bring your duplicate books and coins. You are welcome to send images of your auction items to Roger so they can be projected for better viewing.


The June 12, 2016 meeting was a field trip to the Getty Villa to visit the exhibit 
Roman Mosaics Across the Empire. I was out of town that week but Roger Burry reports that there were 12 attendees on the field trip. Members toured the exhibit of outstanding mosaics and then held a brief meeting focusing on a membership and ANA report by Merrill Gibson.


The latest issue of The California Numismatist includes several announcements welcoming ACCLA back to the California State Numismatic Association (CSNA), a review (with photographs) of the recent presentations given by Merrill Gibson and Paul Ranc at the CSNA Symposium, and this wonderful plug for ACCLA under Club Reports:
  • ANCIENT COIN CLUB OF LOS ANGELES members Merrill Gibson and Paul Ranc gave a presentation at the recent symposium on classical coins, of course. In April, Roger Burry put together an amazing presentation on Vercingetorix focusing on his battles with Julius Caesar. David Michaels of Legion VI and Heritage Auctions participated. Randy Butler shared his coins of this period. The theme in May featured Mythical Moms and Daughters in honor of Mother’s Day. This club may like classical coins but it is up-to-date and modern with over 1,000 hits on Facebook.
In the interests of full disclosure ACCLA's facebook page now has 1,133 likes.
