Connecting Collectors to Clubs and Clubs to Each Other

A Collection of Collector Pins

Throughout the history of the NCC and Department 56 collecting, collector pins have been produced to commemorate clubs and certain events. These pins have been designed by and for the NCC, Member Clubs, collector events, gatherings and even retailer events. Department 56 has issued several pins that were exclusive for visitors to One Village Place as well as others that were used as promotional items for specific products or product lines. While most have been made cloisonné, collector pins have been manufactured in all shapes and sizes with some even blinking. The popularity of pin trading and collecting led to the production of the NCC Trader Pin Shop in 2008. This page serves as a reference point for the numerous pins released.

We are currently missing 33 31 22 20 17 14 known pin photos. If you happen to have one of the missing pins or have a pin from Department 56, a gathering or Collectors Club that we do not have listed, we would be happy if you could take a picture and send it to the NCC Social Media Coordinator with a description of the pin.
