The Tampa Bay Coin Club donated two of their club medals to the
Money Museum at FUN this year. The first medal struck in this
commemorative series was in 2013 and celebrates the 500th
Anniversary of Florida's discovery by Ponce De Leon.
The second medal in the series, 2014, commemorates 110 years of
the traditional Gasparilla festival parade in Tampa since
1904. Each medal in the series features a common reverse with
the club's official logo. The club's medal program
commemorates significant events or sites and honors those
whose actions and achievements have embellished Florida's rich
heritage and diverse cultural history. Each medal is limited
to a mintage of 200 pieces.
