Coin Replicas Adds Early American Coin Replicas to Living History Guild’s Reenactment Program
Charles Doyle, principal and metallic artist, Coin Replicas, Inc., has donated 70 of his company’s Colonial and Early American coins to the Living History Guild of Patterson, NY. The Living History Guild is a family friendly, not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to keeping history alive through historical impressions, reenactments, parades and educational programs, portraying people from different time periods.
Coin Replicas is working with Guild director, Dr. Larry Maxwell, to integrate coin replicas and informative content about the currencies used in early America to enrich the educational programs that the Guild provides to youngsters interested in history and coin collecting.
“Most people don’t realize that the currency of Colonial America – after wampum – was mostly European,” says Dr. Larry Maxwell, director, Living History Guild. “Charles’ product is authentic in look and feel. We are looking forward to working with Coin Replicas to enhance the living history experience that we provide to the community.”
Coin Replicas is currently reaching out to local libraries to plan educational events with the Guild in spring 2011.
