Collectors and Organizations / Vendors

Concerned Collectors Coalition

Concerned Collectors Coalition membership is specifically for individuals whose primary source of income is not generated from the sale of numismatic material. Concerned Collectors Coalition members receive a membership certificate and the association’s quarterly digital newsletter, Member News. A member of our Concerned Collectors Coalition does not have membership voting rights.

Concerned Collectors Coalition members need to identify their federal and state legislators as part of the registration process. One of the first steps in convincing federal and state legislators to support our initiatives is finding out who represents you. This allows NCBA and our lobbyists to focus efforts on legislators whose constituents will be directly impacted by the initiatives, so that we can contact them about supporting our efforts when the time comes. It will also allow our lobbyists to create a clear picture of where these key legislators stand on issues related to our initiatives and which committees they serve on before we reach out to them.

Collectors, join NCBA as a Concerned Collectors Coalition member for FREE and join the fight in our initiatives. If you appreciate having access to a fair market for coins and bullion, you benefit from the work we do. You can also contribute $25, $50, $100, or more, to support our initiatives and help shape the future of our numismatic community.

Numismatic Organization / Vendor

Organizations will receive a membership certificate and the association’s quarterly electronic newsletter, MEMBER NEWS. Numismatic organizations can become members of NCBA in two ways: they can join at any of the existing dealer-member levels or pay on a per-member basis, depending on the size of the organization. A Numismatic Organization does not have membership voting rights.
