Coaldale is a borough in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, United States. Settled in 1827, it was incorporated in 1906 from part of the former Rahn Township; it is named for the coal industry. Coaldale is in the southern Anthracite Coal region in the Panther Creek valley, a tributary of the Little Schuylkill River along U.S. Route 209 between Nesquahoning (easterly) and nearby Lansford, to its immediate west. The town has a bus stop which has a billboard on one side reading "Everybody's Goal Is Mine More Coal". It was founded by John Moser. The area on the western border of the borough is known as Seek.
