The Early American Coppers Club
The Early American Coppers Club (known throughout numismatics as “EAC”) has about 1200 members. Broadly speaking, the hobby involves the acquisition, study, discussion, and promotion of early copper coins: large cents and half cents coined by the US mint from 1793 through 1857, and the various emissions authorized by the colonial and state governments. In 1981, EAC voted to expand its scope to include Hard Times Tokens. Learn more about EAC.
