Earn a badge for coin collecting

Whether you collect state quarters, world coins or coins with a special theme such as animals, birds or plants-turn your hobby into a badge!

The ANA can help

The Education Department has information to help ANA-member leaders conduct a "Boy Scout Coin Collecting Merit Badge Workshop," and the ANA's Young Numismatist (YN) programs provide special collecting information to help you earn your badge or patch.

ANA Merit Badge Clinics are held in conjunction with the ANA National Money Show, the World's Fair of Money and at ANA Headquarters in Colorado Springs.

  • Learn about this fun and fascinating hobby.
  • Earn the Coin Collecting Merit Badge or Fun With Money Patch.
  • Scouts and their parents admitted free.
  • Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
