The Ontario Chapter of the International Bank Note Society is now open for business!
If you’re in Ontario (or not, we're not picky!), you may want to join the new IBNS Ontario Chapter! The Chapter has monthly Zoom meetings where you can meet other local collectors with similar interests, keep up-to-date with what’s happening and enjoy fun topical show-and-tell and periodic educational presentations.

All IBNS members are invited to join the Ontario Chapter and guests are always welcome.  If you're not already a member of the IBNS, you are encouraged to join and receive all the benefits of membership including the awesome IBNS Journal.

Our first meeting is Thursday March 17 with a show-and-tell theme of “military” and a special presentation from Michael Zigler titled "Siege Notes from the Boer War and Khartoum".
  • Thursday March 17 at 19:00 Eastern/Toronto time on Zoom
  • Meeting ID: 892 8689 1630
  • Passcode: 507997
The Ontario Chapter is being operated in association with the Waterloo Coin Society, a local coin club in Ontario, Canada. Through this association, Chapter members will benefit by receiving the WCS Newsletter which will expand by two pages and serve as the Chapter’s official publication. Association with WCS will also allow for membership promotions where members of one organization can join the other at a discounted* rate. The cooperation between WCS and the IBNS Ontario Chapter will also provide increased publicity for both as well as the IBNS.

Membership in the IBNS Ontario Chapter is FREE for existing IBNS members.

The board of directors for the IBNS Ontario Chapter consists of President Brent W.J. Mackie (BWJM), Secretary Peter Becker (Rag_Picker) and Directors Ken Brown (johnny99), Jeff Wilson and Michael Zigler (eyevet).

For more information, please contact me, email ontariochapter@theibns.org or contact the Waterloo Coin Society on Facebook!

* WCS members joining the IBNS can apply to WCS for a $5 rebate paid by WCS.

If you have not had a chance to attend the monthly Zoom meetings - same id# and passcode each month unless we change it, you are in for a real treat and are welcome to drop in.

Topics have been very educational and informative so far and range from Military, heads of state, Space and transportation.  Additional topics have been lined up and there is always a fun show and tell session as well.

The July 21 presentation will be Banknotes of former nations or territories.  You do not have to be an IBNS member to attend, so why not check us out?

In other news Ontario Chapter president BWJM has been appointed Area 2 director overseeing Canada, U.S.A and Bermuda.

Another fun and exciting Zoom meeting is planned for tonight at 7pm.

Michael Souza will be presenting on banknotes from countries that no longer exist.

Should prove to be an interesting topic so dig up some of your notes for the show and tell.

Our August meeting has been bumped up by one week to avoid scheduling conflicts with the ANA Convention and  member's preplanned vacations.

The topic for the evening will be mythical creatures on banknotes and should prove quite interesting.

See you on the 25th!  Log in details and information on the society is in the March 13 announcement.

Reminder that our monthly meetings are continuing and topics have been decided on for 2023.

Attendance like most other virtual events has taken a back seat since the summer and we are hoping to turn that around if possible. 

Even with only a handful in attendance the meetings still run the full two hours but would be way more fun if a few dozen or more showed up.

Our next meeting is on December 15 at 7pm and we would love to see more banknote collectors dropping in.

Attendance was double that of the previous meeting many of whom completed the banknote puzzle for a chance to win a year's membership in the Waterloo Coin Society or a 2017 brass WCS/RCNA Canada 150 medal.

https://www.facebook.com/ibnsontario  https://www.facebook.com/waterloocoins

Members who email the codewords as instructed will have an up to four entries for January 10 draw. 

Puzzles of varying difficulty can be found in the newsletter, at the IBNS Zoom meeting or WCS Coffee House and in the WCS Members Discussion Group.

The theme for the next IBNS Ontario Chapter meeting on January 26 is coins on banknotes.
