The wait is over. The American Numismatic Association has finished digitizing 127 years of The Numismatist, the organization’s official journal of record.
On Dec. 1 ANA members could access over 110,000 pages online. They are from all of the issues right back to the beginning in 1888.
ANA said the online editions look exactly like the printed originals, allowing the reader to experience The Numismatist in its historical context – something the average website can’t offer.
Each archived page can be downloaded and printed, as well as bookmarked, cited and referenced by other registered users.
While most will read feature articles, researchers will find it helpful to follow relevant links to useful resources. There is an easily accessible table of contents and indices with live links, the ANA said.
No matter if you are a coin collector studying a recent purchase, a numismatic auction house researching an upcoming catalog, or a student writing a paper on world currencies and economies, The Numismatist is a trusted repository of classic articles and hidden gems on all things money.
The ANA’s digital archives of The Numismatist is your one-stop hobby reference, helping you expand your knowledge base as you explore the world of numismatics.
