Numismatic Association of Southern California...the premier organization for coin clubs and coin collectors in the land of palm trees, sunshine, and orange juice!

Currrent News:

1. The next NASC meeting will be held at 10:00 on 15 November at the Arcadia Masonic Lodge (50 W. Duarte Rd. Arcadia). A summary of the last meeting and directions can be found in the NASC Board section. If you are a Club Officer, Board member, Member Club Representative, or an interested Club member please attend.

2. There is a summary and a listing of the winners of the Golden State Coin Drawing on the Golden State Coin Show page. Congratulations to all thewinners!


3. The search is on for any members wishing to be a Club Officer or Board member! The current Officers have been in office for more than 2 years and it is time to allow them to step aside and install new leadership. If you have ever considered being a Club Officer or Board Member now is the chance. Contact any current Officer, Board member or anybody at all involved with NASC to be nominated for the upcoming elections. Remember, this is your organization so lend your support and be a leader in its operations!

4. As you can tell, the NASC website has been recently updated. The new design allows larger navigation buttons and is a little better suited for the material presented on the website. After discussion with the Board at the August meeting, I am also planning to add a couple of things to make the website more informational and will announce them here as I get them done. I will generally be updating the site in conjunction with the publication of the TCN but time-sensitive info will be posted as neccesary. Let me know if there are any complaints orsuggestions. :)

A little bit about us:

The NASC is a major force in Southern California numismatics, representing some three dozen member coin clubs and several hundred individual members. Including the participants of the member coin clubs we reach many hundreds on the Southern California coin collecting scene. They've all discovered that the NASC is a unifying organization providing numismatic learning opportunities such as our visual education library, the coordination of program speakers for area coin clubs, and co-hosting the Golden State Coin Show—the major state level coin club oriented coin show in Southern California. Material from our award winning publication, The California Numismatist, containing articles on coin collecting, numismatic history, upcoming coin shows, and information on our member coin clubs, is also an important benefit to our members.

I have added a new comments box to the website, (see below), in an effort to solicit opinions from the general membership. If you are interested in a formal Blog/Forum section please let me know through the comments box.

Comments Welcome! Please contact me if you have any ideas for the site or just generally want to let me know about anything that might need changing or you thinkneeds improving.

If you wish to be added to the NASC e-mail list please send me your contact info via the comments box and I will forward it to the list manager.
