The Society has an excellent reference library of numismatic literature, with over 16,000 books, periodicals and sales catalogues. It is combined with that of the Royal Numismatic Society and is housed in the Warburg Institute.

Members can access the library between noon and 5pm on Tuesdays (except at Christmas, New Year and Easter). Other times may be possible, by arrangement with the Society‚Äôs Librarian.  DURING THE CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN THE LIBRARY IS UNFORTUNATELY CLOSED.   (Library status)

While all items are for reference only and may not be borrowed, there are facilities within the Warburg Institute to photocopy or scan suitable material.

For enquiries regarding library holdings please contact the Librarian.
