At its annual meeting last month, the Maine Golden Retriever Club (MGRC) unveiled its new “Golden Head & Tail” Coin.
“This is a memento that the club will use to express its appreciation to individuals who make contributions to the club and the breed. It is also a souvenir that MGRC members can own and utilize to express personal appreciation to folks who help them in the nurturing of the Golden Retriever breed,” said Charles L. Cragin, President of MGRC.
The coin was designed by noted Maine artist, Roger Williams, of Lovell, Maine.
The head of the coin displays the club’s affiliation with the American Kennel Club and the Golden Retriever Club of America while the tail expresses the club’s recognition of those who support Golden Retrievers.
The coins will be distributed for the first time at MGRC’s Specialty AKC B Sanctioned Obedience Match in conjunction with the York County Kennel Club on November 24th. Every registrant will receive the coin as a commemorative souvenir of participation in the match.
