Who We Are

The National Currency Foundation (aka NC Foundation or NCF) was established in June of 2011 as a New York State Charitable Organization and approved by the IRS in August, 2012 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit operating foundation.

What We Do

The central mission of the NCF is to promote the field of numismatics, in particular the collecting of paper money. We also provide educational and research resources for the general public, collectors, and dealers in the field, and we house the most updated/recent version of the Hickman Project.

Bank Note Census

The Census/The Hickman Project (The Electronic Version): The meticulous collection and reporting of National Bank Notes (started in earnest by John Hickman) is continued in this most recent version of the Hickman Project.
