For Beginning Coin Collectors
This is one of my favorite sites, especially for the beginning collector. They have lots of good articles that help make coin collecting enjoyable. Be sure to sign up for her free e-newsletter.
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)
One of the premier third party grading and certification services that also has census reports, price guides, and a registry for collectors. A great place for socializing with other collectors is through NGC's registry. The nice thing about this registry is that both NGC and PCGS certified coins can be entered into the registry.
Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS)
A premier third party grading and certification service that has news, census reports, price guides, and a registry for collectors. A nice place for socializing with other collectors through their registry. However, unlike the NGC registry, the PCGS registry only allows PCGS graded coins to be entered.

Most coin collectors are a member of this organization at some time or another. Membership comes with a subscription to the monthly The Numismatist magazine.

Central States Numismatic Society
Another of the large regional clubs, it covers the mid-western U.S. Membership includes a subscription to The Centinel magazine. They hold a large annual convention each Spring that has rotated among different cities in the past. It appears the convention may stay in the Chicago area beginning in 2010.
