Welcome to the BECC!

This is the official web site of the Puget Sound (Seattle) area Boeing Employees' Coin Club. News items and editorial comment in this web site do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of The Boeing Company. The BECC meets the 4th Wednesday of each month (see club announcements or upcoming club events below). Meetings are open to all Boeing employees, retirees and other eligible persons as defined by Boeing Recreation. Mailing address: Boeing Employees' Coin Club (or B.E.C.C.), PO Box 574, Maple Valley, WA 98038.

The Boeing Employees' Coin Club (BECC) is one of the most active coin clubs in the Pacific Northwest region. Per the BECC Constitution and Bylaws, "We, the Boeing Employees' Coin Club, are organized in a spirit of friendliness and good fellowship to share the pleasures of coin collecting." The BECC also contributes to the objectives and purposes of the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association "to promote, extend, and protect the interests of numismatists and numismatic activities throughout the Pacific Northwest and to foster and encourage the study of numismatics in all its forms."

The BECC publishes a monthly newsletter (the BECC News), holds an annual coin show in January, mints an annual commemorative medal featuring a Boeing product, and promotes numismatics through special programs and activities such as the numismatic display at the Washington State (Puyallup) Fair each September.

The B.E.C.C. is an IRS 501(c)(7) non-profit organization. See list of BECC officers.
