BRNA History

In 1960, a few people gathered to organize a new regional coin club which became the Blue Ridge Numismatic Association. Like most numismatic organizations, the newly formed organization progressed through good times and tough times. However, the BRNA always had a goal of looking forward and working toward the future in numismatics.

During the early years, the show traveled to different locations to benefit the growing number of numismatists in the area. The locations were cities such as Greenville and Spartanburg, SC; Charlotte, NC; Chattanooga, TN and Dalton, GA with the show dates scheduled around the ANA World’s Fair of Money in August. Eventually, the BRNA Show became “THE ORIGINAL AND LARGEST COIN SHOW’ to be held in Dalton, Georgia.

The Officers and Board of Directors of BRNA are a group of dedicated volunteers who strive every day to make BRNA the finest numismatic organization in the world. If we can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
