Biographical / Historical

The Ogden Coin Club started in 1957, with ten members, with meetings being held at

the home of a member each month. Membership has ranged from ten to sixty

members. With the club growing in size, meetings began to be held at the Weber

County Library on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. A Silver Dollar was

given as a door prize at the beginning of each meeting.

In 1973, the first Northern Utah Coin Show was held to help promote the science of

Numismatics – which is the science of coins, tokens, medals, paper money and objects

resembling in form and purpose.

On September 4, 1973 Donald Nickey was made the Club’s first life member.

In October 1974, the OCC started to make the display, “Coins and Currency of Early

America”, with the help of the Utah Bicentennial Commission. The display was used for

bicentennial programs at schools, Boys Scout meetings, church programs, and civic

organizations.

In 2009, OCC voted to donate their club records to Weber State University Stewart

Library Special Collections, to be housed with their collections for preservation purposes.
