The following was presented by an NSSA member during the meeting held on 17 December 2015. Tonight I am showing a bronze medallion that is 38mm diameter and weighs 26.6 grams. The medallion depicts a pair of magpies on one side standing on a book, one with coins in it’s beak. Around the rim is the legend
“1966 1976 ADELAIDE COIN CLUB”
The initials E.S. and P.F. can be found on the rim at 9 o’clock and the stylized initials ACC can be seen at about 7 o’clock.
The other side of the medallion depicts the Festival Theatre with cloud above and gardens below. Again the initials E.S. and P.F. can be seen, this time at the rim at 6 o’clock.
The medallion celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the Adelaide Coin Club, you can read a little more about the Adelaide Coin Club on this page. The medallion is listed in Carlisle as 1976/1 with a mintage of 100 in bronze, 35 in silver, and 1 in gold. It was struck by Allan J. Olson & Assoc. Ltd in Adelaide. The initials on the coin E.S. refer to the engraver Ernest Snook, and the designer, P.F. are those of our very own Peter Fleig.
