For the first time our biennial conference will feature a competition for registrants to give a 5 minute talk on an interesting piece of numismatic memorabilia, with a President’s prize for the best presentation. “Interesting” might refer to rare, of historical significance or having a fascinating story attached to it. As the timetable is necessarily constrained, registrants will be invited to submit a two-line description of their chosen item, and the top half dozen will be allocated slots in the published timetable to make their presentations.
