Coin program to be held at Harmony Hill in Williamsburg

The Williamsburg Harmony Hill Association invites the public to attend a program on coins at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8.

This program will be a discussion of the origin of coinage in the late 7th century BC in Greece and will continue through the Roman Empire and the following centuries to the present time.

Coins from several different centuries will be available for viewing. You will be able to handle coins over two thousand years old.

The main focus will be on U.S. coins – starting a collection and continuing an interest in collecting. If you have coins that you would like to learn about, please bring them. Do not attempt to clean your coins as that can destroy the value. Please bring a magnifying glass if you have one available.

There is no charge for the program, but we ask that you please register your intention to attend so that we will have adequate seating and handouts available. Please call Julia Hess at (513) 724-3657 or Email at: to register for attendance. The program will be held at the Harmony Hill Museum, 299 South Third Street, Williamsburg.
