The Melbourne Numismatic Society commenced meeting in 1965 and has met monthly in the Box Hill area over this period. It currently meets at Box Hill Community Arts Centre on the second Thursday of each month (except January) commencing at 8pm to 10pm. The evening consists of a short general meeting followed by a guest speaker or member discussing coins (current, ancient and everything in between), tokens, medals and other relevant items of interest, followed by supper. New members of all ages are most welcome and would be warmly received. Adult annual membership is $30 and there is no charge for children if accompanied by an adult member.
