The Ocean County Coin Club was created in 1970 by six sailors and a 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 ages 6-17. They meet at 6:30 and our regular meetings begin at 7:30. New members are always welcome.
Scroll down to see our 2019 meeting dates. We will have two meetings every month for the rest of the year. Our next regular meeting is October 17th and our Annual Show is Saturday October 26th.
2020 RED BOOKS ARE IN. PLEASE SEE THE TREASURER AT THE MEETING.
This fall's show is already looking to be bigger and better than ever. Our dealer tables are already sold out. Save the date and plan to attend because there will be 21 tables of coins, currency, and tokens available for viewing and purchase. In addition there will be interesting exhibits from our members and our Young Numismatists. Dealers will be buying and selling so if you have some interesting items, including old jewelry, watches, gold and silver, bring them with you. Parking is free. Refreshments and our traditional hot dogs will be available.
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.
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!
