Monday, January 15, 2018
01:00 PM - 03:00 PM
Arlington Heights Historical Museum
110 W. Freemont St.
Arlington Heights, IL 60004


Coin Stories begins with a 25 minute slide presentation by Ron Beckstrom about the history of coins, with a focus on U.S. coins and covers things like: Why do we toss a coin to decide an issue? In addition, you will learn where the name “dollar” came from, why we call a quarter “two bits” and many other fun facts related to our money. Throughout this presentation, Ron will answer any questions that you may have.

Following the presentation Ron will provide an "Antiques Roadshow" style appraisal event. Each participant may bring 3-4 coin or currency items to be evaluated.  Ron will roam the room to hold up your items, tell any interesting stories about them and of course, tell everyone what they are worth.
