As one of the oldest numismatic associations in Western Canada, the Manitoba Coin Club was founded in 1954 and became a charter member of the Canadian Numismatic Association (now the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association, or RCNA) in 1955. The club has sponsored the RCNA Convention in 1966, 1982 and 2013.
