Like money? Duncan Coin Show is for you
DUNCAN Dealers will be coming from as far away as Huntsville, Texas; Springfield, Mo., and Arkansas for the Duncan Annual Coin Show. As a bonus this year, folks can register at the door for a drawing for a $100 bill to be given away at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Organizer Ed McGill said you don't have to be present to win.
The coin show is set for noon-6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday inside the air conditioned Stephens County Conference Center at the fairgrounds, 2002 S. 13th. Admission and parking are both free.
Collecting coins has been a family tradition for McGill. He said he began collecting coins when he was about 10 years old, and his father got him started.
"Back then you could start saving silver change," McGill said. "I've been doing it ever since."
At least 22 dealers have already reserved 42 tables for the show. "We're looking at close to 30 dealers and close to 45 tables occupied during the show," McGill said.
The Stephens County Coin Club has been putting on their annual show in Duncan for 48 years, and McGill has been instrumental in organizing that show for several years. This is the fourth year of the show.
