Introduction Catalog Numbering System for TLCC Memorabilia

The Tacoma-Lakewood Coin Club (TLCC) was founded in 1988 by the merger of the former Tacoma Coin Club (founded in 1957) and the Lakewood Center Coin Club (founded in 1963). These three distinct clubs issued a large number of memorabilia items over the years, mostly related to coin shows and banquets. Many of the items were wooden nickels, however there are also a number of other kinds of items, such as banquet favors containing coins.


In Memoriam - Norm Mikat - May 12, 2020

TLCC past president and life member Norm Mikat was instrumental in assembling collections of TLCC, TCC and LCCC related memorabilia, both for the club's own collection and for Norm's personal collection (which has been sold). Photo: Norm and Barb, embarking on a cruise vacation!
Norm Mikat speaking about the club's history and memorabilia collection at the May 7, 2002 TLCC regular meeting. The club's memorabilia collection is photographed and cataloged on this web site. The first 40 items were added to the web catalog on June 27-28, 2002. The catalog now includes all available souvenir items and other items.

At the TLCC April 2002 business meeting, the TLCC board voted to contract with J. Eric Holcomb to prepare a photographic catalog of the TLCC memorabilia collection. (Eric previously cataloged the PNNA memorabilia collection.) Work began in June 2002, and has completed, although Eric will continue to update the catalog as necessary. The catalog is available on this web site, and will also eventually be available on CD and in printed form.
