Coin collectors and buyers around Loudon County gather regularly at the Yacht Club for the newly formed Tellico Village Coin Club’s activities.

“The first meeting was pretty interesting,” Jim Schoffstall, club president, said. “We had a good mix of novice — people that were there just to see what it was like — and we had two dealers show up. They let it be known up front that they’d be willing to buy. These individuals seemed to be down to earth.

“We had a couple of ladies that knew absolutely zero about coin collecting,” he added. “They came up and talked to me, and one of those ladies was only interested in unloading what she had. She didn’t know what they were worth, and she had a shoebox full of wheat pennies.” says Jim Schoffstall, the club founder.

Before moving to Tellico Village, Schoffstall was heavily involved in a coin club in Clearwater, Fla. He plans to use a similar meeting format in Tellico Village.

“We open with a social time, which was also a swap and shop,” he says. “People set up little tables with stuff they want to sell. Then we have a very brief meeting about current events or if someone had a story on a coin find."
