The Australian Numismatic Society

Graeme Stevens.     

From Colin Thomas.
Graeme was a well known collector. Blind at the age of 21, Graeme never allowed his blindness to impede his collecting habits. He had a remarkable memory for names, places and numismatic data. A person only had to say one word to him for Graeme to immediately know who that person was. He was, at various times, President and Treasurer of the ANS Queensland Branch. His collection of Philippine banknotes, many of them rare revolutionary items, was inspiring and Graeme could describe each and every one of them despite never having actually seen them. Over many years, Graeme was the recipient of many awards, awards that he was most certainly worthy of.
He had a razor-sharp sense of humour and enjoyed the odd joke or two.
