This is the website of the Worcester County Numismatic Society in Central Massachusetts. The WCNS is a not-for-profit coin and currency club, and all are welcome. We have members from all over Massachusetts, and nearby in Connecticut and Rhode Island.

We hold 10 regular meetings per year. Our members run the entire spectrum from the casual collector to the serious collector, of U.S., Foreign, and Ancient coins, plus currency as well. We also have an excellent Young Numismatists (YN) program. Please join us for a meeting and check us out!
