History of North Hills Coin Club

Our club was started in 2004 by a small group of passionate numismatists. At that time circulating American coinage was undergoing changes. In 2004 The “Westward Journey” Series was begun commemorating the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The Nickel Five-Cent piece was issued for circulation with two (2) different reverse designs, a Peace Medal commemorating the 1803 Louisiana Purchase and a Keelboat that transported Lewis and Clark through the rivers of the Louisiana Territory. Our club adopted the design of the Keelboat as our logo to signify forward progress. The Series continued in 2005 with reverse designs featuring the American Bison and Ocean-in-View. From 2004 to today, our club has fostered numismatic values in collectors from a small group then to approximately 50 dedicated members currently.

Our meetings are relaxed and informal but packed with information. They begin with a short business agenda before moving on to an educational presentation by a member of the club or an occasional guest related to coins, currency, or medals. Toward the end of the meeting, we typically have a number of members who bring items from their personal collection to share with other members in a classic “show-and-tell.”

North Hills Coin Club (NHCC) is a member club of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN), and the International Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA). Many of our club members belong to additional numismatic organizations to pursue specific interests.

North Hills Coin Club consists of a great bunch of people who love the hobby!


The NHCC engages in other community involvement events throughout the year focused on better knowledge and education of coin collecting. Two of these events are held at The Northland Public Library, an “Appraisal Fair” in April, and a “Kids Coin Program” in December.

The club conducts one of the top-rated shows in western Pennsylvania annually at the Zelienople American Legion the last Sunday of March; unless it’s Easter Sunday (look for reschedule date).

On occasion we conduct educational programs for the Scouts to earn Merit Badges. The club also holds two (2) social activities per year: a picnic in August and a Christmas gathering in early December.
