Some of my blog readers sms and give me a private message in Facebook regarding new numismatic club that they read in Sinar Harian on 18 April 2012, "Kelab Warisan Numismatik". Most of them are asking about the club membership and contact number of the new club. This is the first time I heard about the club and asked them to give me some time to gather the details of the new club. When I read the article by Sinar Harian, I found out the President is Dato' Sharuddin Yusof, one of my customer from Pahang. He have a blog, Galeri Sha Banknote at sharuddin58.blogspot.com to share his collection to everyone. I email him regarding his new club last night.
Today, I talk with Dato' Sharuddin for over one hour about his new numismatic club. His club registered under ROB (Registrar of Business) since 1st April 2012. He register under ROB because the club can skip rules and regulation under ROS (Registrar of Society). The main objective of the club is to gather all Malaysian collectors in a new club. Some of the activities they plan for the new club including numismatic trading between members, numismatic exhibition and numismatic seminar. The Club target audience are all Malaysian collectors who are active online, like Kedai Hantu Duit 2.
You will get membership card and certificate after your registration approve. In the future, members will have a chance to meet with Malaysia Numismatic Sifu and Celebrity, you can asked question regarding your collection and authentication of your collection for free. Kelab Warisan Numismatic also put Kilang Wang Bank Negara (BNM Mint) tour as one of their future activities. They will also try to arrange as many exhibitions as they can this year to promote numismatic and as a members gathering place. In the exhibition, beside meeting members, you can also buy and sell numismatic collection. For a start, the club target one big exhibition this year.
