Welcome to the new website of the Barber Coin Collectors' Society (BCCS). The BCCS is a group of several hundred collectors and dealers dedicated to the study of the American coinage of Charles E. Barber, Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint from 1880 to 1917. Social interactions at a host of regional meeting venues throughout the United States are a key element of the "BCCS Experience."

Please browse our website for news, upcoming events, educational programs, resources for collectors, and membership information. See why any collector of Barber coinage should be a member of the BCCS.
