Local Coin Clubs
Most cities and towns have a local "home town" coin club and you are invited to attend and share the camaraderie! Generally, clubs meet once or twice a month in a bank, library, school, church or other public building. Some clubs meet at a restaurant and the meeting includes dinner, but they are the exception. Local clubs commonly take the name of their town like the West Chester, Long Beach or Colorado Springs Coin Clubs.
Club activities usually cover all numismatic interests from coins to paper money to tokens and medals and may include an educational program; bourse or auction night where members can buy, trade and sell; "show and tell" enabling members to share stories about items in their collections; a program for young collectors and seasonal social events. Many clubs have a yearly coin show that is open to the public; most have a newsletter and/or a website. Each ANA member club has an ANA representative who can answer specific questions about his/her club.
State/Regional Numismatic Organizations
Many areas have state or regional organizations with both individual and club memberships like Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS), Maryland State Numismatic Association (MSNA), Michigan State Numismatic Society (MSNS), North Carolina Numismatic Association (NCNA), Florida United Numismatists (FUN), New England Numismatic Association (NENA), Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) or Women in Numismatics (WIN). Generally, these organizations have an elected board, publish an educational journal and hold regularly scheduled conventions with a dealer bourse, collector exhibits, activities for families and young collectors and educational programs. In addition, several clubs have dedicated programs for Young Numismatists.
National Specialty Clubs
National specialty clubs unite collectors who share a specific interest like tokens and medals (TAMS), hobo nickels (OHNS), early American copper coins (EAC), Colonial coins (C4), pattern coinage (Society of U.S. Pattern Collectors), numismatic literature (Numismatic Bibliomania Society) or paper money (Society of Paper Money Collectors). National clubs generally meet once or twice a year at larger conventions. They usually have monthly or quarterly journals with articles that relate to their specialty. Many have e-newsletters or list-servs, auctions, swap meets or specialty coin shows.
The American Numismatic Association (ANA)
The American Numismatic Association is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. With nearly 32,000 members worldwide, the Association services the collecting community and the general public with an interest in numismatics. The ANA helps everyone discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of programs including its education and outreach, museum, library, publications, conventions and seminars.
