E-BULLETIN 

The E-Bulletin is an electronic publication of The Royal Canadian Numismatic Association and is copyright © 2005 by THE ROYAL CANADIAN NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION. 

The Royal Canadian Numismatic Association is a not for profit organization devoted to serving those who enjoy coin collecting/numismatics by promoting fellowship, communication, education and providing advocacy and leadership for the hobby. 

INTRODUCTION TO THE E-BULLETIN 

The E-BULLETIN was first sent out on January 15, 2005. In that email newsletter the editor introduced the new venture of the Canadian Numismatic Association: 

“Welcome to the first complimentary News bulletin of the Canadian Numismatic Association. It is being sent to well over 1,000 people whose e-mail addresses we have on file from all fields of numismatics: C.N.A. members and other collectors, dealers, executives of clubs and associations, addresses that were passed on to us by others, people that provided us with their e-mail addresses when either joining, renewing or ordering correspondence courses, etc."

"We wish to point out is that this C.N.A. E-Bulletin is not just for people who collect Canadian coins, since we will cover a huge field of numismatics, including U.S. and elsewhere."

"This is YOUR bulletin, and it is up to you to tell us what you would like to cover in future issues. It does not matter if you are a member of the RCNA or not."

"If you do not wish to receive future complimentary bulletins, please send an e-mail to cnanews@look.ca and you will be removed immediately. But why not see what the next few issues contain? After all, they’re absolutely free!"

"If you do get some enjoyment out of it and even wish to contribute, send us your comments, rantings and anything you can think of even remotely related to numismatics. Try not to be too serious most of the time. Given a choice on content, we will opt for lighthearted content that is informative rather than heavily educational, for fun rather than nothing but serious items."

"We would be remiss in not thanking a few people who have made the publication of the C.N.A. E-Bulletin possible. The C.N.A. President, Charles “Chuck” Moore, originally proposed the idea at a meeting between himself, the First Vice-President of the C.N.A. and the C.N.A. Executive Secretary. The Executive Secretary developed a proposal as to content and mailing list. Chuck Moore found a volunteer who agreed to turn out the first few bulletins until a permanent E-Bulletin Editor is appointed. To make the editor’s job a lot easier, we hope that recipients will e-mail us with their stories, questions, news, responses to items, numismatic humor, etc.“ 

THE CONTENT OF THE E-BULLETIN 

The editor of that first issue also outlined what content will be included in each issue: 

"We have a lot of ideas what we want to include. We have gathered up tidbits of the sort of newsy and informative things we think you will want to know about in future issues. It is obviously not meant to replace the scholarly CN Journal that is sent to C.N.A. members. Since we do not expect to put the contents into any sort of order, you will never know what to expect next as you keep on reading."

"We would like to tell you about our plans for the C.N.A. E-Bulletin so that you can comment on what else you might wish to see included, or what you do NOT wish to read about. Some of the contents envisioned, in no particular order, are: 

  • News about numismatic personalities, including congratulations for receipt of awards, engagements, weddings, births, get well, passing, etc.
  • Coin club activities and the people behind them. The best way we can include this sort of information is to have clubs send their bulletins to the E-mail Bulletin Editor so we can glean information from them. Note that the copy of bulletins currently sent by C.N.A. member clubs to the C.N.A. Club Services Chairman should continue to be sent to him, with a second copy going to: C.N.A. E-Bulletin Editor, 4936 Yonge St., Suite 601, North York, ON M2N 6S3. If you send out your bulletin electronically, please add cnanews@look.ca to your list.
  • Behind-the-scenes information obtained from various sources such as the Royal Canadian Mint, Bank of Canada, U.S. Mint and a-hundred-and-one other places.
  • Funny numismatic headlines culled from the numismatic press, as well as funny headlines published about money from the non-numismatic press.
  • Timely reminders on upcoming events such as major coin shows, annual club banquets or milestones.
  • Letters to the C.N.A. E-Bulletin Editor of interest to others.
  • Details about interesting Websites.
  • Details on new Canadian numismatic issues not normally covered by the CN Journal such as local coin club medals and woods, private issues such as trade dollars and civic medallions. We would include pricing and how to order them if clubs make us aware of their availability, providing the seller is non-profit.
  • Information about numismatic museums such late breaking news about the National Currency Collection in Ottawa and the museums at the ANA and ANS, etc.
  • Light-hearted and funny material of a numismatic nature.
  • Interesting articles reprinted from the non-numismatic press that we deem of interest to collectors.
  • Double-speak or ridiculous statements made about the hobby.
  • Tips that can make your numismatic life simpler.
  • Reviews of audiovisual programs available from the C.N.A. Audio Visual Lending Library.
  • More numismatically-related light-hearted and funny stuff.
  • Synopsis of numismatic books and catalogues available from the C.N.A. Book Lending Library.
  • News about C.N.A. committees and the people behind them: Coin Kids, Education, Club Services, Editor, Executive Secretary, Website Coordinator, Building Fund and Past Presidents Committees.
  • Announcements from dealers of benefit to collectors. Although we will not allow commercialism to creep into this bulletin, we will consider, for example, the inclusion of the availability of free “worthwhile” catalogues, providing we or someone we know has the opportunity to review it first.
  • Did we mention funny stuff?"

Please note that any submissions, comments or information sent to us will be shared with subscribers unless indicated otherwise. We reserve the right to edit submissions for publication.
