Education - Camaraderie - Numismatics

For more than 75 years, the Cincinnati Numismatic Association has been the gathering organization for coin collectors and other numismatic related specialists in the Greater Cincinnati area. Its purpose has remained the same. It is to foster knowledge of numismatics and a fraternal spirit among those who pursue the study of coins, currency, tokens, medals, and exonumia.

The organization meets once a month, usually on the second Friday at 7:30 pm. Our meetings consist of numismatic talks, discussions with well-known experts, digital presentations, exhibits, and a dinner held every April.

The Cincinnati Numismatist, is the clubs monthley newsletter. In 2006 and 2007 the publication received first place in the ANA's competition for Outstanding Local Numismatic Publication.

The Cincinnati Numismatic Association has its roots in its long history, but strives to serve the needs of the collectors of the future.

The Cincinnati Numismatic Association was founded in August of 1930 and consisted of thirty-five members including numismatic notables such as B. Max Mehl and Farran Zerbe. The first CNA President was Herbert A. Brand. The CNA was founded for the purpose of hosting the 1931 American Numismatic Association convention. Since then the CNA has hosted the ANA convention three times more, in 1942, 1980, and 1988. The CNA also hosted the 1998 ANA Spring show.

The CNA employs the Tyler Davidson Fountain as its club symbol. The fountain appears on the original 1930 copper CNA medal that is pictured in the upper left-hand corner. The background of this page is from an intaglio engraving of the fountain that was made for the CNA by the American Banknote Company.
