The Ancient Coin Club of Los Angeles (ACCLA) was established in 1966 to advance the knowledge and study of ancient numismatics, ancient coins, and their history.

ACCLA members include people who collect ancient coins, people who are interested in ancient history and numismatics but who do not collect coins, and some experienced numismatists with an extensive knowledge of the field. ACCLA members have had articles published in journals such as the Celator, and some member's coins have been featured as plate coins in important numismatic publications including David Sear's recent editions of Roman Coins and Their Values.

ACTA ACCLA features informative, educational articles on ancient coins, numismatics, and history. It includes thematic series such as Coins of the Five Good Emperors and the Twelve Caesars. Recent additions include articles on the Women of the Severan Dynasty and the treatment of bronze disease.

ACCLA cordially invites all interested in ancient numismatics to attend our monthly meetings where you can meet others who share this interest.

ACCLA meetings include a show and tell period, announcements of auctions, shows and events of interest, a drawing for door prizes, and an educational program presented by a member or guest speaker. Sometimes, coin dealers bring items for view and for sale. The educational  programs usually reflect aspects of ancient coinage, but lectures on archeology, ancient history, art, temples, and ancient culture are often featured. While you don't have to be a member to attend a meeting, membership is low cost and members receive the monthly meetings notice by e-mail or surface mail. If you would like to know more about how ACCLA functions, the ACCLA Bylaws are available online. Download the membership brochure for more information about joining ACCLA.

The ACCLA website features ACTA ACCLA - with articles on ancient coins, art, history and numismatics written by our members, links to other resources and information on Club membership, activities and meetings. For regular updates, join us on facebook.
