The NNP library, at the heart of our project is a growing database of all numismatic literature and documents we can digitize.
Rub shoulders with our huge database of numismatic figures from authors to Mint directors to coin designers.
A great place to start if you don't know exactly what you're looking for.
A wide selection of historic numismatic periodicals, featuring many popular titles.
Coincident with the Coinage of the Americas Conference (COAC) events held at the ANS in the 1980s and 1990s, the ANS produced a number of boxed sets that contained color slides along with pamphlets incorporating introductory material and slide descriptions. The material illustrated a number of United States coin series and, in the era of the slide projector, was ideal for meeting presentation purposes. Each set of slides and accompanying pamphlet illustrate and describe the major types and design evolution within an American series. Newman Portal has digitized the slides and pamphlets for four of these, including America’s Copper Coinage 1783-1857 (1984), Massachusetts Silver Coinage (1994), Die Varieties of the 1794 Large Cent (1984), and America’s Federal Gold Coinage 1795-1933 (1989). Newman Portal acknowledges the ANS for permission to digitize this material. Can E-Sylum readers report the existence of any other sets?
