October 2019 TEC Member Coins
This issue’s coins did not disappoint. This month all TEC members received 3 coins commemorating the 2019 World’s Fair of Money, held in Rosemont, Illinois. Two of the coins were from the show. If you have attended the 2019 WFOM, you would have had the opportunity to make your own. TEC generously sent one to all members, whether we were able to attend or not.
The first pressed penny was designed by Tyler Tyson and Paul Conner and commemorates the TEC booth at the World’s Fair of Money. The design features a rose, since the WFOM was held in Rosemont. It also features the TEC owl.
The second pressed penny was also designed by Tyler Tyson and Paul Conner. This pressed penny features the Chicago skyline. It has the text “World’s Fair of Money, Chicago, ANA, August 13-17, 2019, Rosemont.”
The third pressed penny included in the October 2019 issue of TEC News was donated by John and Nancy Wilson. It was designed and rolled by Ray Dillard. John and Nancy handed these out to convention attendees in honor of the 100th anniversary if the Chicago Coin Club.
