About the CNRS

The Canadian Numismatic Research Society (CNRS) was founded in 1963 by a group of respected Canadian numismatists who wished to stimulate public awareness and understanding of numismatics related to Canada, through the promotion of research and study, and the dissemination of knowledge.

Membership in the CNRS is by invitation only. The main criteria are that a prospective member be actively engaged in numismatic research and has published the results of his/her research in a widely distributed journal or book. Current members have a wide range of interests from ancient coins to Canadian banking history and include coins, tokens, medals, paper money and numismatic literature.

The society does not evaluate or grade material.

The Society publishes a quarterly in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Token Collectors. This quarterly, Numismatica Canada, is available to non-members on an annual basis postpaid for Can$20.00 within Canada or US$20.00 to the USA. For destinations outside of North American please enquire, since costs are primarily dependent on postage. The content is primarily concerned with Canadian tokens and their histories, but there are numerous articles on medals, modern municipal trade dollars and other numismatic topics.
