Who we are:

The Ocean County Coin Club was created in 1970 by six sailors and one marine who wanted to share and expand their knowledge of coins. The original meeting location was at Lakehurst Naval Airstation. We currently meet at the Ocean Fire Company #1 in Point Pleasant Beach on the corner of Arnold and St. Louis Avenues (next to the post office).  We strive to share our knowledge and admiration of numismatics with monthly meetings, show and tells,  in-house auctions, and occasional guest speakers. We also offer a Young Numismatists Club for children ages 6-17. They meet at 6:30 and our regular meetings begin at 7:30. New members are always welcome. 

Annual Meetings and Events

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to our members and their families. We had a very successful year and looking forward to another great year in 2020.


So as 2020 is almost here

and the Ocean County Coin Club is entering our 50th year

Let us appreciate its long history

The reason for its success is no mystery

We like coins, yes we do

But the real reason is the members who always come through

We applaud them all for their work and devotion

Many more years will create quite a commotion

So keep our 50th Coin in your collection

And wear your Pin proudly

Next year will be busy

We will communicate loudly

Pitch in when you can. It helps us run smoothly.

And remember those original six Sailors and that one Marine

They created something special out of one small dream.

                                                               --D. Harris

  


Our  first  meeting  in  2020  will  be  on  January  16th.

Young Numismatist Club News

Thanks to Jeff T. and Jim M. our YN Program finished the year strong. Several YN's presented Show and Tells, the auction involved coins and paper notes from around the world and longtime member and past president Kari B. spoke about Canadian silver 25 cent pieces and broad struck error coins.


The Club elders are very grateful for the knowledge and initiative of YN Mathew T. for establishing a Google Classroom account. YN homework will now be posted online. YNs can receive more info at the meetings regarding access. This will be a great tool for the club and will enable greater participation and improved communication for the YNs.


Thanks to the generosity of our collector members and loyal dealers we have now collected over 2,000 cents and we will be needing even more of all grade levels. The goal is to put together and slab a certified set of all grades in order to maintain a grading program for our YN's to study, discuss, and learn from at each meeting.

All YN's are encouraged to bring in their Indian or Lincoln cents and their albums to the meeting.

New members are always welcome. The YN meeting begins at 6:30 pm.

Our 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coins and Pins are here!

We are very pleased to announce that our club's 50th Anniversary Coins and Pins are in. The design celebrates our history and longevity; and they are beautiful! These are sure to be something every club member should have and something that NJ numismatists should want to include in their collections. Coins are $10 for members; $15 for non-members. Pins are $5 for members and $6 for n0n-members. Each will be available at club meetings and future shows.
