CSNA History

Part 1 — The Early Years

Founded in 1947, CSNA has a long history of numismatic activity in California.

We worked for the restoration and reopening of the Old Mint museum in San Francisco in the 1970s. Currently, CSNA is supporting the establishment of a national numismatic museum in San Francisco's Old Mint building.

A history of CSNA's first 35 years (1947 to 1982), including early officers, convention details, and CSNA's contributions to the Old Mint Museum is available as a PDF file for those who want to learn more of CSNA's early years and accomplishments.
