City’s 100 years to be coined

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

To celebrate 100 years as a city, the Chiefland Centennial Committee plans to mint silver and bronze coins.
City commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to approve a request from the committee to borrow money from the city’s industrial fund, about $10,000, to pay for the coins.
Committee Chair Bill Hammond said the coins are to help fund the centennial celebration, planned for April of next year. One-hundred silver coins, featuring the likeness of Seminole Chief Osceola on one side and the meandering Suwannee River on the other, will be auctioned off and sold, Hammond said.
The first 25 silver coins will be numbered and auctioned off separately, Hammond said. The remainder will be sold for about $200. The bronze coins, costing about $3,000 to produce, will be sold, as well, but for less.
