The club, which has 100 odd members, is also gearing up to add new members by launching a membership campaign in the eastern region.
Kalyan Guha, general secretary of the club said that even though large sections of coin collector’s are eager to come on the common platform to exhibit their rare collection.
But in the wake of lack of awareness about the presence of the club they are unable to display their love for ancient coins.
Therefore, a sustain campaign is being carried to bring the otherwise scattered coin collectors under one umbrella.
City-based coin collector’s club has proved its merit by successfully organising exhibition for last one decade and its eagerness to venture into the auction, added Guha.
