Inland Empire Coin Club
About Us
 

Welcome to the IECC!

 

     The Inland Empire Coin Club is “the” active coin club in the greater Spokane, Washington region. We, the Inland Empire Coin Club, are organized in a spirit of friendliness and good fellowship to share the pleasures of coin collecting. The IECC also contributes to the objectives and purposes of the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association - "to promote, extend, and protect the interests of numismatists and numismatic activities throughout the Pacific Northwest and to foster and encourage the study of numismatics in all its forms." 


     The Inland Empire Coin Club was founded in 1953 in Spokane,  Washington. We held our first meetings in the Spokane County courthouse in Spokane.   We NO longer hold meetings every month on the first Monday of the month, although the bi-annual coin show will continue.  We also had a picnic in July in a city park and a banquet in  January.  The banquet is an installation banquet for the newly elected officers. The elections are held each December, and the officers serve for one calendar year beginning in January.  At the picnic, we play bingo games and give away over $200 in coin prizes.  

MEMBERSHIP:

We invite anyone who collects coins to become a member.  Our dues were $10 per year for an individual, or $15 for a family.

MEETINGS and MEETING PLACE:

Our meetings began at 7:00 PM, on the first Monday of the month, and were usually over by 9:00 PM. We had a business meeting and then held drawings for prizes, raffle, and also have an occasional coin auction. 

We gave away coin prizes at each meeting just for being a member. 
Our coin raffle is open to anyone, and tickets are 5 for $1.00.
Anyone could bring a coin lot for the raffle valued at $50 or more, which the membership then votes on if there's more than one.  The lot with the most votes is chosen for the raffle, and it is purchased from that person.  

Our current  meeting place is:


COIN SHOWS:

We also hold two Coin Shows each year.  They are currently held at The Center Place in the City of Spokane Valley.  They are usually held in the spring and fall.  If you are a dealer, we welcome you to participate by purchasing a table.  Our members do all the preparations for the shows. We usually have 40 or more tables and have about 25 dealers from Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and some even further away.

This is a new location for our show. You will find it to be larger, better lighting, more parking and easier to get to.  To get there take the Evergreen exit from I-90. Go North to the end of Evergreen.  Turn left and go to the next traffic light. Turn right and take the first left, then the next right and go about 2 blocks to the Center Place parking lot.  Center Place is across the street from the YMCA.   

Admission to the show is $2.00 for both days.  We sell tickets for a drawing for a gold coin and 5 U.S. silver eagle coins.  These tickets can be purchased from any member for $1.00 each.  They can be purchased in advance, or at the show. Admission to the show also gives you a chance to win an hourly door prize with your admission ticket.  These are drawn every hour for both days that the show is operating.  You  must be present to win the hourly drawing, but not for the gold coin.
