New Token design for 75th Anniversary

In the last Board meeting we put together a team of folks that will work on creating a 75th Anniversary Token (or medal) and how we will design the finished product. Wood? Copper? Zirconium? Over the next few months, we will be creating a contest which will, we hope, motivate all of you folks out there to present possible design artwork for the upcoming celebration.  Share your knowledge, skills and input to help us on the success of this project.

Contact me at with your input.

Ed Fischer, Board Member

Gerald Williams Honored for Exhibit

At the August 13th Mid Valley Coin Club meeting, Gerald Williams received his award for his exhibit at the April Tukwila PNNA coin show.  Gerald won 1st place under the United States and Canadian Coins category with his exhibit titled: The Arts: Numismatic Contribution of the Cooper Union. Danny Bisgaard and I, Ed Fischer, were in attendance when President Bisgaard presented Gerald his winning award.

Gerald often presents exhibits with much detail and planning. And this one was no exception. Go to the PNNA website and see the pictures.

Update (2023) – Past exhibit reports have been consolidated into PDF files. See the current completed exhibits page for links.

Congratulations, Gerald!

Greetings from Ed Fischer and what’s going on

I’m new to the Board of PNNA and new to blogging.  Hope I don’t mess it up too bad.  But not new to Numismatics.  I am involved with many Clubs in the Willamette Valley area of Oregon and love to educate and share my finds.

One of our duties as a Board Member is to visit Member Clubs.  I look forward to visiting as many as time, my job and family allow.  I plan to visit North Shore Numismatic Society on September 18th and Seattle Numismatic Society on the 20th.  In between I plan to share my love of Numismatics at the Puyallup Fair in between.  Anyone up for a road trip to Vancouver BC or Seattle?  I’m flying solo but would love to share expenses and a good conversation.  Contact me at if interested.
