British Numismatic Society

Promoting the study of coins, medals, tokens and banknotes



  This new feature on the Society's website was launched on January 1, 2022. The first 800+ entries were created by Gary Oddie, with the help of many contributors. It will continue to be added to in future with the help of readers. Full details of the process so far can be found in the BNS blog entry of January 1, 2022. (Link) The primary aim is to provide an image and where possible, brief details of individuals, many now deceased, who have made a contribution to British numismatics.  Other images such as coin tickets, bookplates etc also form a significant part of the records.  (Further details)
