History of Salina Coin Club
 
The Salina Coin Club was formed in 1949. The membership was comprised of collectors and businessmen from a wide area of North Central Kansas. That same year our Club joined the ANA (American Numismatic Association) and has been a continous member since. During those early years, the membership included many active duty military personel stationed at Smoky Hill Air Base and the head count was around 60 members. In 1964 the numbers swelled to over 70. A few of those members are still in our Club today.
The Base name was later changed to Schilling Air Force Base and in 1965, the Air Force announced that Schilling was on a list of bases that were to be closed. In 1972, six years after the base closure, the member count had dropped drastically and a motion was made to suspend all club activities due to lack of interest and participation. In May of 1972, a sale of club assets was held and the proceeds were deposited into a CD at a local bank. The interest of this account was used to keep the club dues to ANA up to date. Two of the four Board of Trustees assigned to maintain this account are still active members in our club.
In September of 1988, the Salina Coin Club was re-organized and we have been holding regular meetings since.
