Welcome!

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!

Massachusetts Quarter Launch is happening as scheduled: The next in the "America the Beautiful" series of quarters is the Massachusetts coin commemorating Lowell National Historic Park. The launch and coin exchange is scheduled for Wednesday February 6th at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium at 10:00 a.m. After a program of about an hour, citizens can purchase rolls of the new quarter at face value, up to 10 rolls (at $10 cash per roll). In event of a severe statewide storm, the snow date will be Thursday February 7th.

A Coin Forum hosted by the U.S. Mint will be held Wednesday February 5th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Lowell National Historic Park Visitor Center. All are welcome.
