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.
