The Lower Cape Fear Coin Club will again sponsor the Azalea Festival Coin Show Saturday and Sunday.

We talked with Bob Neale, club past president, and Karen Foster, the club’s representative to the Azalea Festival.

Q. What’s special at the coin show for kids?

Foster: Gold History Corp. and people from the Reed Gold Mine State Historic Site will be letting people pan for gold again. For $5, you get a pan of dirt from an actual North Carolina mine. Don McNeely is a 30-year prospector, and he shows you how to do it. It’s worth the price just to talk to him. Also, since it’s the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half-dollar, we’ll be presenting half-dollar sets to the winners in the Azalea Festival children’s art contest.



What: The Lower Cape Fear Coin Club Coin Show
When: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. April 12 and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. April 13
Where: American Legion Post 10 building, 702 Pine Grove Drive
