The Parkersburg Coin Club was founded in 1956 for the purpose of promoting numismatics in the immediate geographic area. Toward that end, the club meets monthly to conduct business and promote fellowship within the membership.
These monthly meetings serve to provide opportunities for club members to buy, sell and trade coins, paper currency, script and medals, both foreign and domestic.
Additionally, the club conducts coin shows that attract dealers from a wide geographic area that offer a large range of items available for purchase by persons of all ages. From 1956 through the end of 2011, the club has conducted a total of eighty four such shows.
