Focus and Purpose
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.
club provides a forum for people interested in this period. The aims of
the club are:
To increase the publicís knowledge about colonial numismatics through
meetings, conventions and its newsletter.
To promote the study of colonial numismatics and to help disseminate
To cultivate fraternal collector relations.
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.
