Chicago sets up Hall of Fame

A Hall of Fame is being created by the Chicago Coin Club to mark its 100th anniversary in 2019.


Next year, 12 individuals will be inducted to the HOF, one per month, by the club.

The club has had many a prominent numismatist as member, and it will be interesting to see who will make it into the top dozen.

The Hall of Fame will be found on the club’s web page,

The Chicago Coin Club was organized in 1912 as American Numismatic Association Branch No. 1 and reorganized under its present name in 1919.

All collectors in the United States are invited to join. To become a member, you must attend a meeting and submit an application along with a membership fee of $20 ($10 for Junior membership). A first reading of your application will be held at this meeting, and a second reading at the next monthly meeting, following publication of your name in the club newsletter. (You are not required to be present for the second reading.) Upon membership approval, you will become a member.

The Chicago Coin Club holds monthly meetings in downtown Chicago and gathers at major numismatic conventions such as those held by the Central States Numismatic Society.

Every meeting features a speaker except the annual auction, which is held at the November meeting.
