"What is the difference between a Numismatic Society and a Coin Club?"
"Well, a numismatic society is a sort of club for people who are interested in coins,
Absolutely right. And that is exactly what the OWL is all about.
Our Members are interested in almost everything to do with coins, tokens, medallions
and money in general. We range from beginners to former beginners, we span the years
from Ancient to Modern, we don't believe that there is any "proper" way to collect,
and we do believe that our hobby should be enjoyable.
We hope that you might feel the same way too. If you do, please look around our site.
There is information about our Club, our Meetings, how to find us, Numismatic Notes,
and some longer Papers which our Members have put together. And if what you see interests
you, why not come along to our next meeting? Visitors are always welcome, and sometimes
turn into new Members!

Featured Page: Collecting The Coins Of Richard III
Richard was King of England for just two years, from 1483 until his death at the
Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. He was the last king of the House of York, the
last of the Plantagenet dynasty and his death is sometimes regarded as marking the
end of the English Middle Ages. The discovery of the remains of the King in Leicester
has generated even more interest in the coins issued during his brief reign
