Welcome to the Willamette Coin Club’s website, where you can join other numismatists in the Portland, Oregon, area who enjoy collecting and studying coins. Whether you are a beginner or experienced collector, you are welcome in the club.
The Willamette Coin Club (WCC) is a non-profit organization active in Portland since 1986. The club serves coin collectors with widely varied interests. We currently have a membership of over fifty paid members.
The club meets at 7 PM on the third Thursday of each month at the following locations:

The club’s goal since its foundation has been numismatic education: to teach, spread and advance the enjoyment and knowledge of numismatics in the Portland metro area. An ongoing function of the coin club is to provide information to the public about how coins and other payment forms have shaped the world through time. Club and guest speakers offer their knowledge each meeting.
The Willamette Coin Club dedicates itself to educating and encouraging the study and collection of coins, medals, tokens, currency and related items. It holds public, educational meetings monthly and a regional convention yearly.
Our mailing address is Willamette Coin Club, PO Box 19213, Portland, OR 97280.
