The Australian Numismatic Society

Howard Mills.     

From Colin Thomas
Howard was an avid collector of coinage from different areas and ages. His pet was Perth Mint penny varieties which he studied assiduously. He wrote on the subject many times and constructed displays to illustrate his investigations. He was also passionate about Chinese coinage. One time secretary of the Queensland Branch, Howard was meticulous in his reporting of facts and events and keeping the minutes of meetings. He and his dear wife Phyllis were always gracious in inviting visitors to their lovely home at Bardon at one side of Mount Coot-Tha. For his dedicated services to the society he was awarded the silver medal (A.F.A.N.S.).
