WILLAMETTE COIN CLUB
Portland, Oregon, USA
CLUB HISTORY AND ACTIVITIES
The club was founded in 1986 by a group of numismatists with varied interests.
We have hosted the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) Coin Show for the years of 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999. The Willamette Coin Club will be hosting the 2004 American Numismatic Association's Mid-Winter Show to be held at the Portland Convention Center, the site of the 1998 ANA Convention.
The Willamette Coin Club is proud to host the 51st Annual Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association Convention and Coin Show. This show fills a unique niche in the nation's coin shows as it is the only major show held on Easter weekend in the country and you still have time to celebrate the holiday with your family.
Portland coin dealer, all round good guy, and bon vivant John Haugh has written a 12 page John Haugh's Guide to the City of Portland for prospective attendees to the PNNA convention in Portland this year. Anyone interested can receive a free copy courtesy of the host Willamette Coin Club simply by e-mailing president Rob Retz at email@example.com and including a snail mail address.
Annual Membership Dues: $15.00 Regular, $20.00 Family, $2.00 Junior.
Dues are payable at the first of the year and may be brought to the next meeting or sent to the club at:
Willamette Coin Club
Membership benefits include mailing of the monthly bulletin, (so please give us your full mailing address) free authentication of coins and currency, auction and bourse privileges, and association with those who share an interest in numismatics. We are always interested in individuals who would like to publish an article in the newsletter.
Meetings are normally held on the third Thursday of each month at the Multnomah Center, 7688 S.W. Capitol Highway, Portland, OR, at 7:00 pm.
Board meetings are held 2 weeks after the regular meeting time (or when the regular meeting should have been, i.e., always a Thursday). Current location is Lockwood Products, 5615 SW Willow Lane, Lake Oswego, OR (take I-5 exit 290) at 7:00 pm. All club members are welcome to attend.
