Please STOP and read this information before proceeding!

The PNNA would like you to become a member, but please be sure you want or need a PNNA membership before paying. PNNA memberships are only required if:

  • You are applying for a PNNA scholarship.
  • You want to run for a PNNA board position, or vote in a PNNA election.
  • You want to subscribe to The Nor’wester in paper form. (There is currently no charge to read the online versions.)
  • You want to become a life member and obtain a photo ID badge good for free coin show admission. Regular memberships DO NOT qualify for free admission.
  • Your club needs a club membership to apply for club benefits.

PNNA dues are a good bargain:

Regular memberships (paper newsletter copies mailed): $10 for a Young Numismatist (up to age 21), $15 for an individual membership, $15 for a club membership or $20 for a family membership. (All rates are annual.)

Individual life memberships are currently $200 regardless of how the newsletter is received.

However, please do not pay without reading the disclaimer above about whether or not you need a membership.

Why Should I Join the PNNA?

You should join the PNNA so that you can support the following programs —

The PNNA —

Maintains this website and publishes a quarterly newsletter (The Nor’wester) with news of numismatic events in the region, including a show/event calendar. (Your club’s show is listed free of charge if you send us the details.)

Hosts two annual conventions or coin shows (spring and fall). Currently both are in the Seattle area, however, the PNNA still cooperates with the Willamette Coin Club fall show in Portland, Oregon.
