PCDA History

The Professional Currency Dealer Association was founded in 1985. It counts among its members over 100 of the world's leading specialists in currency, stocks and bonds, fiscal documents, and related paper items.

PCDA Goals

the goals of the organization are to promote, stimulate and advance the profession of dealing in all forms of currency and related items; to advance the study of paper money; and to promote honest, knowledgeable and ethical dealing between members and the public.

PCDA seeks to foster public awareness though education, and currently sponsors several project aimed specifically at accomplishing that goal. Some of those are; the National Bank Note research project; a series of informative booklets, currently numbering seven different, concerning various specialty areas of the hobby; and sponsorship of the John Hickman National Bank Note Exhibit Award, presented each June at the Memphis Paper Money Convention: and underwriting of paper money seminars at the American Numismatic Association's summer series, as well as providing scholarships to worthy recipients to attend those seminars. PCDA also hosts its own show, the PCDA National Coin and Currency Convention each fall in Chicago.

PCDA aims to make people aware of the joys of collecting, and the knowledge that can be acquired through participation and study. The camaraderie that is also experienced can be looked upon simply as an added fringe benefit!
