No such thing. Pantone doesn't make them available. You'd have to create your own by measuring them. Named color profiles are kinda rare. I haven't seen one in ages. And also, a NCP  can contain an arbitrary number of solid colors. It might contain 1, or it might contain 3000.

They're found in products that license Pantone libraries from Pantone.
