DUNCAN — Coin dealers from Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas are in Duncan this weekend for the 45th Annual Stephens County Coin Show.

The show runs from noon to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday in the Territory Building at the country fairgrounds, said Ed McGill, treasurer of the Stephens County Coin Club.

Admission is free.

About 30 dealers will sell silver and gold bullion coins, mint sets and a variety of rare coins, McGill said.

Stamps and jewelry also are sold, he said.

“It brings a lot of people into town,” McGill said. “The dealers in Texas are already here.”

The Stephens County Coin Club has 55 members and is the second-oldest coin club in Oklahoma, according to McGill.

It meets the fourth Monday of the month at the Red River Technology Center and welcomes anyone who wishes to attend, McGill said.
