TECNews Jan-Mar 2023 Issue Elongated Coins

Here we are a few weeks into 2023 and there is already so much going on. I’ve been making some travel plans for later this year that I can’t wait to share with you. While I was working on all of that I was surprised to find the latest TECNews edition had arrived in my inbox.

I’ve mentioned in the past there are so many great articles in each edition and I hope you are currently TEC members so you can enjoy them at home. In this post however I’m just going to be give you a closer look at the special elongated coins that accompanied this latest newsletter.

This design had me a bit confused at first until I read the explanation inside the newsletter. Anthony Wilford Brimley was a well known actor and singer who was in many classic movies including Cocoon. The Brimley Cocoon Line marks his age on the day the movie “Cocoon” reached theaters. At that time he was 18,530 days old (50 years, 9 months and 6 days). Current TEC President Tyler Tyson had passed this quirky pop culture line back in April 2022 and he created this elongated coin to commemorate that milestone.

Above is the second design that is also from Tyler Tyson and shows off his super cute pup Bugsy. This design was created to celebrate Bugsy joining the Tyson family, and to help encourage adoption and rescuing animals in need of a loving home. Tyler commissioned this adorable design, and I must admit those cute little dog foot prints around the edge are such a cute touch.

The third and file design is from our friend and fellow collector Bob Frazier who grew up in Independence Missouri which is also the hometown of U.S. President Harry S. Truman. Bob has been collecting Truman memorabilia since he was a teenager, with over 500 items to date in his collection. But none of those items mentioned their hometown of Independence. That’s where the idea for this elongated coin design came from. The details in this design are incredible and I almost with this was a continuing set of coins with other U.S. Presidents and their home towns.

That’s another edition of TECNews in the books. As always I have included a link to the TEC website here in case you are interested in more information or are ready to sign up and start enjoying this incredible club. I hope you enjoyed these very special and exclusive coins. Have a fantastic week and as always Keep on Pressing!
