  • Provide a network for members
  • Educational Opportunities
  • Gain recognition for women in numismatics

Women are encouraged to become involved by serving as officers, speakers, writers, and mentors.

WIN was founded in 1991 as a network for female numismatists, both newcomers and established collectors. It encourages fellowship and networking among members, and promotes education through speaking engagements and seminars. The group’s magazine, Winning Ways, is published three times yearly and features scholarly numismatic articles.

Women have much to contribute to the hobby, science, and business of numismatics. Membership in WIN is not limited by gender. We welcome anyone who has an interest in numismatics, is willing to help us promote the hobby, and abides by our code of ethics.
