History of The Capital City Coin Club

The Capital City Coin Club was organized in 1969. Our first coin show was in 1972 and the club has held at least one show every year since. Some of the longer standing meeting places were the Travis County Court House, The Austin History Center and several local city libraries.

Every few years we donate a new Red Book: A Guide Book Of United States Coins to local libraries and elementary schools in and outside the Austin area.

There has been a monthly meeting since the beginning. After a short business meeting we host numismatic programs delivered by members or guests.  On occasion, we include a show and tell by members or a video programs. This is followed by door prize drawings and sometimes a small auction of numismatic items by the members.

Membership has always been three dollars, annually. This entitles the member to free admission to the yearly club show and three other shows held at the same facility. Any member who attends at least three meetings throughout the year will receive an invitation for them and one guest to the Christmas Dinner.
