FEATURED WEB SITE: THE HAÏTIAN NUMISMATIC SOCIETY
The E-Sylum (1/31/2010)
This week's Featured Web site is the Haïtian Numismatic Society. I tried the email links and they all bounce. I'm not sure how recently the site was updated, but I'm curious to learn the fate of numismatists and numismatic collections following the recent earthquake disaster in Haiti.
Haïti's colorful history is proudly reflected in numismatics, both in coins and banknotes, with one of the most vivid examples being the newly released 2004 bicentennial series of banknotes. Haïti numismatics has long had a small but very dedicated collector base within Haïti who have not had a specialized organization dedicated to their needs. With the establishment of this new organization we hope to bring greater awareness of Haïtian coins, medals and banknotes not only to Haïtians but to a wider audience throughout the world.
