Is there a name for currency collecting somewhat like there is for stamp collecting?

Question by RotundSwede: Is there a name for currency collecting somewhat like there is for stamp collecting?
I’ve hear that stamp collectors (or people that do various things with stamps) are referred to as philatelics (or something like that… I can’t remember the term)..

Is there a term for bill collecting?

    One has to understand that there are coin collectors and currency collectors then there are numismatists who not only collect but also study and know the history of the coins or currency they have or would like to have. The same thing goes with stamps. philatelist’s know the history and study stamps while collectors just collect them. Give the powers to be time and they will make up a name for currency collectors. They have already done it for token and medal collectors.
