Since its inception in 1977, the International Paper Money Show is known only as “Memphis” to the fraternity of collectors and dealers that cherishes this time-honored tradition as the granddaddy of our hobby.

The biggest and the best of all currency collectors have made the trek to Mecca – I mean Memphis – to share their passion for paper money. It is that passion and the treasure hunt for notes, educational events, meetings, SPMC breakfast, bourse floor, auctions, exhibits and camaraderie that keep collectors coming back.
