Fellow of the Ontario Numismatic Association Award
The O.N.A. introduced the Fellow of the Ontario Numismatic Association award in 1994. The “Fellow of the O.N.A.” recognizes individuals for outstanding service to numismatics in their local area. This includes their work with the local coin club and promoting numismatics in their community. Work in the local club can include executive and committee responsibilities, participating in club projects and shows and involvement in club meetings. Promotion of numismatics in the community can include involvement with museum and mall displays, articles in the area paper and television and radio interviews, speaking about numismatics at service clubs and other non-numismatic groups.
The “Fellow of the ONA” award recipients receive a specially engraved medal, a framed certificate, and a specially engraved pin-back metallic nameplate. Up to three deserving individuals can be honoured as a “Fellow” at each ONA Convention banquet.
