About WIN


solidus_irene1599WIN is a nationally incorporated non-profit organization founded in 1991. Membership includes people interested in promoting numismatics among women.


  • 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.


WIN is pleased to announce a fun and easy way for everyone to get involved and support numismatic education!

We’re holding a 25-25/50 raffle fundraiser, which means TWO lucky winners will each walk away with 25% of the total raffle ticket sales, and 50% will go directly to WIN’s scholarship program to ANA’s Summer Seminar. Tickets are only $1 each or 6 for $5.  Payment can be made by mailing your name, address and a check to Cindy Wibker at PO Box 471147, Lake Monroe, FL 32747-1147.

Each year, WIN pays for one lucky numismatist’s tuition and board for a semester at the American Numismatic Association’s annual Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs – and we need your help to keep this amazing scholarship program going. So pick up a ticket or two for your chance to “win” while supporting WIN!  The two winning tickets will be drawn on Friday, August 8, during the Chicago ANA.  Winners need not be present.
