Club History and Activities
In addition to conducting our fun, friendly and educational monthly membership meetings, the Waterloo Coin Society (W.C.S.) is quite active in the numismatic community having hosted eight major coin conventions over its first 60 years.
Our founding members were also instrumental in the formation (with the assistance of the London Numismatic Society) and successful official launch of the Ontario Numismatic Association at the club's third annual show and banquet held March 24 - 25 1962 at the Walper Hotel in Kitchener. Over 750 collectors from across the Ontario and the United States turned up for the two day gala event with 230 attending the dinner.
Although the glory days of numismatics (1950's and 60's) are long gone, the club continues to hold promotional events at local area shopping malls offering free advice and answering many of the common questions collectors and non-collectors have. We are a passionate and friendly group who really enjoy the rich history behind coinage and banknotes, medals and tokens.
In recent years we have enhanced our meeting experience by embracing technology, conducting two 100-lot auctions annually and expanding our online presence. Like many clubs that have made it through the first decade of the 21st century, we have updated our Constitution and Bylaws and offer our newsletter exclusively in digital format to new members. Our specialty themed meetings such the August Peaches n' Cream Ice Cream social and December Christmas celebration are always well received and attended.
Continuing on the 22 year tradition and legacy of the Cambridge Coin Club, we began hosting the Cambridge Coin Show in 2014. Support of this popular spring event and those mentioned above will help to grow our membership, promote and introduce new collectors to the hobby and serve residents of all ages across Waterloo region.

Calling All Collectors Brad Coughlin, Special to the Times
CAMBRIDGE - The Waterloo Coin Society hosted a coin show this past Saturday at the Cambridge Newfoundland Club. Rather than charge admission, the society asked for donations to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank. Official totals aren't available just yet, but organizers say 300-plus people attended, generating $280 in cash donations and an overflowing tote of food contributions.
Sean Richardson and Siobhan Richardson, 4, were among those who attended the Waterloo Coin Society show Saturday.
