About addition to Corporate Policies--Coinage

Message: 1 Date: Thu, 3 Feb 2005 20:42:46 -0700 From: "Meg Baron" Subject: [Announcements] Regarding addition to Corporate Policies, Section XI To: Message-ID: <007b01c50a6b$9a8b8360$0302a8c0@MEG> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" Greetings unto the membership of the SCA: A message from the Board of Directors: The practice of period numismatics in the SCA has become more widespread in recent years. Its pervasiveness at events has raised some questions that compelled the Board to determine if it was necessary for the SCA to adopt a policy on the use of coinage and currency. In response to our question, the Legal Committee presented the following Policy on Coinage and Currency, which the Board adopted as SCA Corporate Policies XI on January 22, 2005: "While the SCA, Inc. supports and encourages the study of period numismatics, it is not the policy of the SCA, Inc. to endorse or require the acceptance of privately minted coinage or other tokens at SCA-sanctioned events. The SCA, Inc. or its branches shall not require the acceptance of privately minted coinage or other tokens as payment for any goods or services at any SCA-sanctioned events. Any such transactions may be conducted at the discretion of the individuals involved, as with any other barter transaction. In such cases, compliance with applicable tax laws is the responsibility of the individuals." This policy does not mean that coins may not be minted as event site tokens or souvenirs. They add much to the atmosphere of events. However, this policy does mean that no individual or group may require that privately minted coinage (that is, anything not minted by the U.S. Treasury Department or any other officially government issued coinage) be used or accepted as a form of payment for merchandise, services or fees of any kind at any SCA event. In service, Meg Baron President, SCA Inc. ------------------------------ Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to: SCA Inc.
