Welcome to the Huron Valley Numismatic Society (HVNS) web site!  We are a  fast growing active coin club. HVNS holds monthly meetings which include: monthly auctions, informational speakers on various numismatic related areas, Show and Tell, and we watch a coin related movie or currently we are working on our grading skills! We hold two public Southeast Michigan Coin Shows per year, one in the Spring, the other in the Fall. The club believes strongly in the importance of youth involvement in the hobby and strives to get kids involved. We hope this site serves suitably to inform you about our club, encourage your membership and be an informational tool that you can use.

Why are many coin collection jar banks shaped like pigs?       


BECAUSE: Long ago, dishes and cookware in Europe were made of dense orange clay called 'pygg'. When people saved coins in jars made of this clay, the jars became known as 'pygg banks.'  When an English potter misunderstood the word, he made a container that resembled a pig.  And it caught on.
