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.

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!

Next meeting: Friday November 13th - November newsletter available November 1


(586 kb)

For our November meeting: All attendees MUST wear a mask while inside the Parish Hall at all times, and no food or beverage will be served. Attendees will sit properly distanced from each other. Couples/families may sit together, but each group must be distanced (we will remove chairs to ensure distance). This will be an informal gettogether to allow people to see each other. We will have an educational program as well. There will not be an auction or bid board. We will have spread-out Show and Tell. There will not be a YN meeting, but YNs can certainly attend the club meeting with their parents. Obviously, if you are ill, stay home. If you have any concerns about attending, please stay home.
