For over twenty years, the Madison County Coin Club has served the north Alabama community by bringing numismatists together for the love of coin collecting. The Club strives to impart knowledge to its members through presentations and personal experiences. Through the sharing of knowledge and experiences, it enhances and enriches coin collecting for the numismatic community. Speaking of our members, we have a vast group of collectors who collect all types of United States coins, as well as, foreign coins. Many of our members collect coins from a certain era (19th century, for example), while others collect strictly modern coins. We also have members who collect only a certain type of coin (Seated Coins, Morgan Dollars, and Commemoratives, to name a few). Some members focus solely on foreign coins (for instance English, German, and Chinese) which can span many centuries. This diversification makes our club dynamic, providing something for every type of collector.

A Short History of the Madison County Coin Club

by Richard Jozefiak
Why was the club started?
I was transferred for work to Huntsville, AL and moved with my family from Virginia (living near Washington D.C.) to Madison, AL in April 2000. I had been coming to Huntsville since 1998 for business trips on a regular basis and had looked for a coin club in the area. I did attend some one-day coin shows held in Huntsville. At the local coin shows in Huntsville I asked about a coin club in the area, and a number of people told me there were none, and probably no interest. In Virginia I was an American Numismatic Association (ANA) District Delegate volunteer. I have been an active ANA volunteer in a number of positions since 1993. There was not an ANA member club in the area at the time, or even an active coin club. I contacted the ANA Headquarters in Colorado Springs and requested a search of ANA members within a 50-mile radius of Huntsville, sometime in late 2000. I was informed by the ANA that there were a little over 100 ANA members in my search area. I decided that with so many ANA members, there should be interest for a coin club, and I decided to start one. The club would have four main focuses: More can be found in Richard's book:
