a group of people with special interests in the numismatics of ancient coinage. We meet once a month in downtown Chicago to discuss topics in our various fields of interest. The format for our monthly meetings is interactive. We do not challenge members to prepare expert presentations on a topic which they deliver to a passive audience. Instead, individuals with some expertise in an area are invited to moderate a group discussion so we can stimulate one another in our thinking of any subject that comes along. There is no telling where the conversation will go, since members are free to bring in their own questions and ideas. Of course, no one will be able to participate in all discussions with equal ease, and there may be some individuals that prefer to merely observe the conversation of others. You are invited to come to any meeting and listen or participate in the discussion as our guest.
