The Catonsville Coin Club was organized in 1964 by a group of enthusiastic collectors who wanted to get together and share their favorite hobby of coin collecting with other collectors.
From the very beginning, it was mutually agreed that the club should be low-key in concept with the primary objective of enhancing the hobby of numismatics through collecting with a gracious sprinkling of camaraderie. This basic idea was incorporated in the Club Constitution as Article II, Objectives; “The objectives of the club shall be to promote and encourage an interest in numismatics, to assist collectors, and to cultivate relationships among collectors.”
With this successful foundation, many talks, contests, quizzes, and educational sessions have taken place as Club programs. The Club Library boasts a collection of nearly 100 resource items available for loan to each member - free of charge.
The Catonsville Coin Club, with a roster of approximately thirty to forty (30-40) members, meets conveniently in Catonsville the second Wednesday of every month (unless otherwise notified), with the exception of November. The Club’s Annual Dinner meeting is held on the second Wednesday in November. In addition to the business portion of the meetings, other activities might include an auction representing all areas of collecting, door prizes, numismatic related educational programs, show-and-tell sessions, and a raffle. Modest refreshments, provided by the members, are usually available during the break portion of our meetings.
Each member receives in the U.S. mail the popular Club Bulletin “Coin Chatter,” which includes the minutes of the last meeting along with articles related to numismatics.
The Catonsville Coin Club is a member in good standing of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), the Maryland State Numismatic Association (MSNA), and the Baltimore Area Numismatic Coalition (BANC).
Guests are always welcome at the Catonsville Coin Club, so bring your coin collecting friends and come join us for an evening of camaraderie and friendship on the second Wednesday of each month.
