Your Support Makes a Difference

During 2019, Numismatic Crime Information Center (NCIC) fielded hundreds of calls and assisted collectors, dealers, victims, and law enforcement agencies across the country and around the world. Successes were many and included the recovery of over $100,000 in rare coins, shutting down Romanian gang activities that had resulted in losses of over $100,000 and assisted in the arrest of a suspect responsible for writing bad checks in excess of $100,000 to dealers across the country. Most importantly, the information regularly disseminated by NCIC prevented many collectors and dealers from becoming numismatic crime victims.

The resources provided by the Numismatic Crime Information Center have become powerful tools in the fight against numismatic crime. These resources would not have been possible without the help of the numismatic community.

As the year comes to an end, I hope you will consider sending a generous tax-deductible donation to NCIC. Your donation is crucial and will make a lasting impact on our mission and the on-going fight against numismatic crime.
