Thank you to the RCNA
Greetings from Halifax,
I would like to thank all those who helped make the July RCNA Convention in Halifax so successful / fun for myself and Donna. It started off with many people crossing a big item off their bucket list by going for a cruise on the Bluenose II. A lot of happy and perhaps slightly sunburned collectors.
I am very honoured to share with you that at the RCNA banquet that I was awarded the Charles D. Moore Professional Numismatic Award. The photo shows me receiving the award from RCNA President, Steve Woodland.
The Charles D. Moore Award, named after a past president of the RCNA who many feel embodied the very characteristics this award is intended to honour, was inaugurated at the 2017 RCNA Convention, held at Boucherville, Quebec.
The award each year is intended to honour the recipient who has consistently contributed to the advancement of Canadian Numismatics and the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association over a number of years. The recipient will have exhibited a willingness to advance the hobby through Dignity, Integrity, Truth and Knowledge. The recipient is selected from those professional numismatists, full- or part-time dealers, researchers and writers, publicists, and benefactors, who are members of the RCNA.
The market for quality tokens and medals was strong.
All the best,
Stephen & Donna Oatway
