Welcome to the website of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club. The Liberty Seated Collectors Club is a not-for-profit group of over six hundred collectors and dealers dedicated to the study and attribution of the American silver Liberty Seated coinage of the 19th century. Social interactions at a host of regional meeting venues throughout the United States are a key element of the "LSCC Experience."

Please browse our website for news, upcoming events, educational programs, resources for collectors, and membership information. See for yourself why the LSCC is the best investment in numismatics.

Please note that due to the Coronavirus, a number of the coin shows in the schedule are likely to be cancelled. We will post updates as we get them. We recommend that you verify any event is going to be held before traveling to the show, until further notice.
