The Greater Port Arthur
Coin Club was established in 1960 by a small
group of area Coin Collectors led by Lloyd Buss, a
native of Port Arthur who also served as District
Governor of the Texas Numismatic Association
(TNA). The club has a present membership of
approximately 35 members. The Greater Port Arthur
Coin Club is also a member of the American
Numismatic Association (ANA), C-36674 and a life
member of the TNA, CLM007. One of our members,
Jerry Williams, is the current President of the
TNA. Jerry and his wife Barbara are also Regional Coordinators for ANA Region 9, which includes
Texas and Louisiana. The Greater Port Arthur Coin
Club meets the first Thursday of each month at
7:00 PM at the Jefferson County Clinic Building,
7965 Viterbo Rd. adjacent to the Southeast Texas
Regional Airport. ALL VISITORS ARE WELCOME!
