Welcome to the SNS!
The Seattle Numismatic Society (SNS) is a vibrant local coin club serving the Seattle and greater Puget Sound region. The SNS was founded in 2003 by the merger of the former Seattle Coin Club and the former University Coin Club. The SNS welcomes all numismatists — persons who study, collect, or deal with coins, paper money, tokens and medals.
The SNS is proud to present seattlenumismaticsociety.org, our home on the World Wide Web! This site is updated at least monthly to bring you accurate and up-to-date information about numismatics in the Seattle area. SNS members are also available to help answer your questions about numismatics. Please don't hesitate to ask us a question or to contribute information for possible use on this site!

SNS Club Information / Events
What is our charter? — Per the SNS bylaws, Article II, "This organization is formed for the mutual benefit of its members. Each member will exert every effort towards the advancement of numismatics, and towards making the organization a success by obtaining new members." In doing so, the SNS contributes to the mission of the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) to "promote, extend, and protect the interests of numismatists and numismatic activities throughout the Pacific Northwest and to foster and encourage the study of numismatics in all its forms."
What do we do? — In addition to maintaining this web site, the SNS publishes a monthly newsletter, has monthly meetings (except in July and August), an annual banquet and promotes numismatics through special programs, activities and awards. SNS members participate in the numismatic display at the Puyallup Fair Hobby Hall each September.
