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.

Although the U.S. has been reopened, cancellations are still possible, although much more unlikely. 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.

Announcing the Seated Half Society
A new club for the collectors of Liberty Seated half dollars, under the umbrella of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club. There is an SHS Webpage here on the LSCC website, and a quarterly SHS Newsletter 'in the E-Gobrecht starting in November. No Dues! Volunteering to start the club will be SHS President Dennis Fortier and SHS Vice President Dr. Verne Pitman. Membership in the SHS is earned not granted. As such we hope membership in the SHS will be considered a numismatic achievement in the career of a Liberty Seated half dollar collector. See the SHS homepage for more information, membership criteria, and an application.
