C4ís Focus and Purpose

The Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4) was founded in 1993 to provide a forum for collectors of numismatic material related to the Early American era. This involves coins, tokens, currency, and medals. The exact time frame encompassed by colonial numismatics is open to debate, but is generally accepted to include the complete pre-federal period as well as some issues of the 1790ís. The early George Washington coins, tokens and medals are considered colonial items by most, and some of these date to the first half of the nineteenth century.

The club provides a forum for people interested in this period. The aims of the club are:

1- To increase the publicís knowledge about colonial numismatics through meetings, conventions and its newsletter.

2- To promote the study of colonial numismatics and to help disseminate this information.

3- To cultivate fraternal collector relations.

For these purposes, the club will hold several meetings during the year in conjunction with major numismatic shows. The club has also established a colonial reference library and a colonial coin photo file. In addition, the C4 Newsletter is published quarterly.
