Our earliest meetings were at Andrews AFB, Maryland over 40 years ago. We became the Bowie Coin Club in 1986 and on October 18th 2011 we celebrated our 25th anniversary. Our club is a very active one with a wide range of ages and collecting interests represented. Our meetings are usually the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Kenhill Center (formerly the Bowie City Hall), just off of US-50, about 15 miles east of Wash. D.C. The monthly auctions are one of the features of the Club, with about 250-300 different lots that you can bid on...mostly U.S. but almost always some Canadian and foreign lots. Bid lots range from $5 - $500 in price, with most under $50.
We usually have some refreshments and have an annual banquet. Cost to join the club is only $20.00 yearly and it is only $10.00 for our junior members.The Bowie Coin Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at the old Bowie City Hall, 2614 Kenhill Dr. Our meetings start at 7:00 PM, but the coins up for auction are available for viewing at 6:00 PM.
We have people coming as far as Baltimore and members from the following states, including:
We even have one member in Dublin, Ireland.
The Club's Annual Dinner will be at the Nautilus Diner, May 18th, 6:00PM.
