The August meeting will feature a Coin Photography Seminar. Bob Latanzzi will moderate the activity and questions; panelists Merrill Gibson, Michael Connor and Bob Effler will talk about their photographic setup and technique for taking coin photos. Other members are welcome to bring their setups too. This is a chance to learn about photographing coins, to improve your technique, or to discuss any problems that you might be having.


ACCLA's August 2016 meeting was held in conjunction with the ANA's World's Fair of Money show at the Anaheim Convention Center. The meeting started with a visit by ANA President Jeff Garrett and Walt Ostromecki. They awarded ACCLA a Presidential Certificate of Recognition in honor of the Club's 50th Anniversary. ACCLA President Ken Friedman gave an overview of ACCLA and its activities while our ACCLA PowerPoint show played. The meeting attendees then broke out into informal groups, and socialized and discussed coins that had been brought to the meeting. A couple of ACCLA past members were in attendance including Rich Basler and Jerry Kleeb. Other attendees included David Elliott and his wife from the Reno Coin Club.


The previous Thursday at the ANA, Randy Butler gave his presentation The Joy of Collecting Ancient Coins immediately following ADventures in EDUtainment's performance of Coin Masters of Syracuse. 

In other ANA related news, Club members will be pleased to hear that Ian Garcia, one of our youngest members, won second prize for his presentation: When Greece Ruled the World: An Overview of the Coins of the Early Hellenistic Period. Congratulations Ian!
