PNNA Young Numismatist (YN) Activities

Scout Clinics and Numismatic Workshops.

YN scholarship available for ANA Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs – See the scholarship page (which links to the scholarship application). The annual deadline to apply is the end of February.

See the Tresure Hunt page for more information about this and related family/youth activities at PNNA conventions and coin shows.

Washington State (Puyallup) Fair – This popular event is held each September. The PNNA sponsors the annual coin exhibit in the Hobby Hall, with assistance from local coin clubs. We typically have handouts including magazine copies, event calendars, a coin club list and coins (including elongateds made with the PNNA “penny press”) for junior collectors! These handouts are also available at the spring and fall shows.

$5 YN memberships available (with online newsletter option) – see membership page.

Washington State Quarter Design Contest (held 2002-2005). Although this activity is long since over, you may want to consider a similar contest pertaining to more recent U.S. coin programs and designs, medal designs, etc.
