Chicago Coin Club - Show Handouts

From 1989 through 2011, the club has prepared a handout for all attendees at the meeting held in conjunction with the Chicago International Coin Fair. Under the general heading of Odd and Curious Money, each folder contains a modern reproduction of the item in question, along with much history surrounding it.

In 1996, the club started a similar handout for the meeting in conjunction with the Chicago Paper Money Exposition. Each handout looks at a bank from the Chicago area; illustrating some of the money it issued, along with a history of that bank.

Some club medals and handouts are still available for purchase. See the order form for pricing and availability.
