Our September Auction had 19 at the meeting thank you we hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

This website is still having a few 'Link' issues that some of you may have experienced. They will be attended to in due course but at the moment we are still able to keep this programme page updated.

The meeting in October will take place just outside our usual room at the top of the stairs. All the usual evening facilities will be available.

Dates for the 2019 programme are now in preparation. If anyone has a topic or speaker in mind please pass that on to The Secretary..

There is coffee, tea and biscuits available at the meetings.

A prize raffle is now held at most of our meetings.

Please look up our 'Essex Numismatic Society' 'Facebook' Page and check us out. Join in the discussion.
