The Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) is a regional organization for numismatists — persons who study, collect, or deal with coins, paper money, tokens and medals. The PNNA is proud to present, our home on the World Wide Web! This site is updated frequently to bring you the most accurate and up-to-date information available about numismatics in the Pacific Northwest. PNNA members are also available to help answer your questions about numismatics. Please don't hesitate to ask us a question or to contribute information for possible use on this site! The PNNA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation registered in the State of Oregon.

Recipient of the 2015 Exemplary Service Award from the American Numismatic Association.

The PNNA is pleased to be one of over 40 numismatic organizations selected to receive a special one-time gift from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES). Newman, who passed away in November 2017 at the age of 106, was active in many numismatic societies throughout his long collecting career and understood the value of working with fellow collectors and researchers in order to advance the science of numismatics. See the Jan. 2019 thank-you letter from the PNNA, explaining some of the ways the PNNA is using the donated funds.
