Quote: "starnutoditopo"1) Though the APIs at https://qmegas.info/numista-api/ are really very nice, as far as I understand, are "unofficial". I'd rather prefer something supposed to be maintained, supported, and guaranteed to mirror the data by Numista. Is there any plan to mark the APIs at https://qmegas.info/numista-api/ as "Official"? •
Xavier created an official Numista API (https://en.numista.com/api/doc/). Megas' API is great and covers a lot of operations. I doubt Xavier will integrate Megas' API into the official because the API does not have a huge demand.

After searching for Serbia in country list ("ser" actually), I noticed some weird dropdowns that function unexpectedly. •
Here's the image, but it's better to try it yourself. •
Edit: Looks like, by searching the word "ser", the output spits Seriphos as it contains the word "ser". Seriphos is under Cyclades which is under Greece (ancient). There were never any unexpected dropdowns. They are just a bit buggy when dealing with queries.
Quote: "CassTaylor"Thanks for sharing, I think someone brought up one of those lights on my enquiry about taking coin photos. •
After attempting to take good coin photos in this mood lighting-lit hotel room I think I can appreciate your ring light's usefulness. I tried many methods. This is the best one so far

Quote: "CassTaylor"Subscribed to the guy, so I saw the video when it first came out- but thanks for sharing anyway! He does some great vids with banknotes, I share his frustration at the 1935 Canadian $20 being out of my price range. •
Pretty sad what happened with his cat, though. I've been a subscriber for a while now. I loved his 'The World's Coolest Banknotes' video. •
That is a really cool banknote indeed! •
Rest in piece Reggie

I cannot do that as a regular referee. I contacted a master referee to do that. Waiting for a response.

I honestly expected less
As a kid from Serbia, I had a ton of old Yugoslavian inflation coins and banknotes. They were useless but I just couldn't throw them away. •
Another thing I did, before officially starting to collect coins, is that I kept all of the foreign coins and notes that I did not spend on my trips (mostly Euros, some BGN, CZK and DEM) in a little ceramic dish. I noticed that I had a lot of them, so I started to get some interest in them and well..look where I ended up
I discovered this software a couple of months ago. I have (somewhat) successfully imported my collection from Numista (as Excel) to the OpenNumismat. •
My questions are: •
1. Is there a way to merge/add only coins I added to my collection since I imported it to the software •
2. Is there a better way of adding coin photos? •

Quote: "Houseofham"I don't think the Edit was there when I read it. In any case, thank you (and the main admins) for taking care of that. •
Edit: Oh, one more question. How are you planning to deal with mintage numbers for 1915? Move the numbers from medal alignment to coin alignment or just leave the latter blank?I would leave it blank. What do you suggest?

Quote: "MihajloNesic"Go Serbia! •
I wish.. Congratulations. Good result, but weak match... •
Will support Serbia on stadium against Brazil:)Thank you! •
Next match is going to be tough and very important for us. As Switzerland and Brazil tied, they each have a point now, which means, if we loose to Switzerland, they will be first in group, and I doubt we gonna beat Brazil.
Quote: "CassTaylor"Recently the Kingdom of Swaziland also officially changed it's name to "eSwatini", and back in 2016 "Czechia" became official shorthand for the Czech Republic, but we here at Numista seem to be somewhat lethargic to adjusting to proper/new names. •
I suppose it'll eventually happen; kinda like when Siam became Thailand in 1949, or Persia became Iran in 1935, or Ceylon became Sri Lanka in 1972; it took a lot of the less worldly folks decades to adjust and start using the "new" names regularly. It's a phenomenon that seems unique to an already independent country changing it's name (you don't see it with Bechuanaland/Botswana or Nyasaland/Malawi as much, for example). •
Change comes slow, but steadily, and history has shown swimming against that current only makes you in the end a tired loser. I 'love' changes in political geography. I requested a couple of flag changes in Numista in the p[...]
I would like to see an option of exporting your collection to excel with ONLY Gregorian dates.
Quote: "elier.am85"Hi Megas! •
Could you give me an example or two on how to use your API? It may be a simple question but it would be very helpful to me. Thank youMegas already gave a couple of examples. See the examples above.
Quote: "radrick007"these pieces were produced and issued by the Central Bank of Montenegro but they had no legal tender status and were just commemorative collectors' items?Yes, they were never used as currency nor they were in circulation.
Quote: "sarahthomas"Useful links, thank you so much, keep updating!Thank you!
I would buy this, It looks cool
Oh..... Don't get me started with Serbian customs.... •
Every time I want to send coins, they send me to a customs office to 'check' coins and then HE (or she) estimates the value of my coins. Usually the value of coins I send does not go over 10 euros in circulating value or numismatic value. But, according to those smart arses, it is always enormous value and they think that I dug out some 'old' coins. •
There is a law in Serbia that you cannot send SERBIAN coins and notes that are cultural diversion, This means coins/notes older than 1939 (from Kingdom of Serbia/Yugoslavia). If you want to, you need a licence from the National Bank of Serbia. If they decline your licence proposal, the coins can (and will) be confiscated and put in the museum. •
Even now, after about 30 swaps (even outside Numista) the customs 'torture' me and my beautiful packaged coins.

Quote: "CassTaylor"Not sure what you mean; after you request the change the referee has to approve it, which usually takes about 24 hours or less (if they're active anyway). Try messaging him directly if something else went wrong for you.It is not possible to remove the years. That is the change I couldn't do.Correct. It is not possible to request year removal. Master referees are the only people with permission to do this. •
Edit: Jarcek removed the year
Is there a way to get a shareable link of my euro coins? •
Like, for eg, here is a shareable link for my Chinese coins •
I can do a private search filtering only euro coins, but the link is private (only I can see it) and it is relative to the log on user.
Niue has always been an amazing "country" to me. •
I always imagined it as a paradise island in the pacific which in fact it is. •
They are associated state of New Zealand so they use New Zealand dollar but it is very funny to see them minting Mickey Mouse, Pokemon and Disney silver dollars almost every year. •
I, personally, would like to own some of these coins because they are really unique. •
However, this set of coins really presents the island well, because of the sea motifs. •
You can check mine on my web page! •
Edit: 185 Countries, 202 Issuers
Yes, it is a matter of time untill we are all used to it. I bet a couple of weeks from now we would look back at the old layout and not be nostalgic
Quote: "Numismatist uk"Similar to the total silver value?Exactly!
Try exporting the collection again
Another millennial here :)
Here are some more photos of these sets •

I've just updated my website. The random coins search is better than ever check it out ---> https://mihajlonesic.github.io/numisweb/coins.html#tool
Why do you need an app when the website is responsive and perfectly designed for mobile use. •
But, there is an unofficial Numista app for Android that is in alpha phase. Read more here

Quote: "MihajloNesic"Spain - 5 Pesetas - 1897 - KM# 707 •
I like Spanish 5 pesetas very much. They are not too expensive, there are few nice types and collection looks uniform.I'm trying to get a type set of all Spanish silver and bronze types from between 1869 and 1937; and I can say the Spanish type collection isn't very consistent (for example there is no 2 peseta coin for the 3rd head of Alfonso XIII, and there is only a 50 Centimos coin for the 5th head of Alfonso XIII (1910)). Very confusing and frustrating when you learn you spent all day asking for a coin that doesn't exist. I don't really mind that.
Đ and Ð
It’s the same letter I think. In Serbian we also have the letter Đ
I support this. •
The fact that the Numista is one of the biggest coin catalog on the Internet and it is completely free to use and modify is fascinating. The referees modify and improve the catalog for free and only by the power of will and love toward numismatics.

An 1861 Confederate Half Dollar certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) led the way in Heritage Auctions’ sale of Part IX of the Eric P. Newman Collection on Wednesday, Nov. 1. It realized a record $960,000. •
The Confederate Half Dollar was one of only four struck at the New Orleans Mint in the short time it was operated by Confederate forces. The obverse reused an 1861-O Seated Liberty die, while the reverse features a shield surrounded by the words CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA. •
It is graded NGC PF 40 and was previously owned by collectors Waldo Newcomer and “Col.” E.H.R. Green. •
Two other Confederate Half Dollars have been sold recently: one graded NGC PF 30 and pedigreed to the Partrick Collection was sold by Heritage for $881,250 in January 2015. Another, graded NGC PF 40, was sold by Stack’s Bowers in March 2015 for $646,250. •
The remaining specimen is in the collection of the American Numismatic Society. •

Well these •
Unfortunately, there is not (yet, I hope so). But, like Leitwolf said, upload photos here, and someone will probably identify it.
So I saw this auction today, and the guy is selling a 20 US dollars with a 'unique serial number' with starting bid of 12.500 Serbian dinars (about 100 euros) •
Here's the photo •
What is so unique about this number? •
Here's the auction link •
Quote: "Jesse11"OK, so... I've thus far drawn a line and kept my collection to just coins and not allowed myself to get into banknotes or stamps, etc. I have a few notes from countries that I've traveled to, and I have the previous design series of US bills tucked away, but it's not something I've pursued. But this forum and seeing people's photos of beautiful banknotes is tempting me. And it is true that when you look at one's collection of, say, WWII-era French coins, you're only seeing half the picture of what money was like at that point in history. So, I'm thinking of getting my feet wet with some banknotes from my favorite countries and historical time points. •
We have the same 'problem' •
I might get into banknotes soon, idk
Maybe apply heat to the tape part? Like with a hair dryer. I did this method to remove stamps on letters. The heat 'melts' the glue.
This would be an amazing implementation. •
A new page where a person would upload the photo of the coins, then he/she would select these 'layers' and position them over the text/symbols. Then the system will try to read the text and image and search though database. •
Here's what I'm talking about •
I got China - Empire - 1 Cash - Kangxi - 1680-1690 from a swap •

Nice set btw, I really like it
In Serbia, if you DO NOT send by registered, your package will probably be stolen/lost and there is nothing you can do about it. •
On the other hand if it is registered, you will receive the package 100% •
So that is why I ONLY trade with registered letters.
Yes I saw much better now
When my granddad bought a land in 1960s, where he would build the house afterwards, and started digging and creating the base for the house, he found an old pot with a lid. •
Similar to this one •
He found inside a couple of Roman coins. •
One of those is this one, the only one he preserved. •
He keep it a secret and never told anyone untill a couple of years ago because of the Serbian (Yugoslavian then) laws where if you dig out something it belongs to the Country and you must report it.

Why is there a need for second account? If you add the same coin in collection twice on two accounts, you are messing up the Numista rarity index.
edit: posted the reply twice by mistake, just ignore
Yes, Serbia has a rich history dating back from the 8th century and even earlier. In all our history, we never betrayed our allies, we were always on a victorious side of wars and we kept our Pride (Serbian, Orthodox, Slavic), unlike other countries in the Balkans.
Among other coins, in August I got 'Crete 1900 20 Lepta' from a swap. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces11799.html •

Very informative post. I like it
Macedonian 10 and 50 denari are in circulation and they were minted in 2008 only
The user requested a new photo for 5 para 1879. It's not a bad photo but I think the old one is better,smoother and more clear and the requested one has some greenish colours. However, the user disagrees. So, we wanted to see how many of you Numista users like the new requested photo. •
1) Old photo •
2) Requested photo •
What do you think?
Quote: "loruca"the third coin looks like a papal grosso, the date reads 1?80...I see the person (probably angel) standing •
Is this the date? I see 1180 but it can't be 12th century •
Yes, you are right. Italy also (because of Latin) has REPVBBLICA ITALIANA on their coins. Again, V instead of U. •
Thank you for your work :)
Yeah, I noticed the lion on the shield. Thank you very much for the help :-) •
And thank all of you for helping.
If any of you are looking for Serbian and Macedonian coins, I am willing to trade them for coins that interest me. Since I'm from Serbia and my dad works in Macedonia, I can get any of their "new" coins (1,2,5,10,20 Serbian dinars and 1,2,5,10,50 Macedonian denars). Feel free to see my coins for swapping. •
I'm interested in getting: •
- Old Yugoslavian and Serbian coins •
- Arabic coins (coins from Islamic countries like Qatar, Oman, Yemen...) •
- Coins from exotic places (e.g. Fiji, Tuvalu, Niue, Maldives...) •
- African coins (I have only 21 African coins from 13 countries) •
- Coins from country I don't have •
- Pre-Euro European coins. I'm missing these countries: •
Vatican City, Belarus, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, Isle of Man and Faroe Islands •
..also Europe/Asia countries: •
Armenia, Azerbaijan •
Feel free to send me request!

The best cleaning is not to clean. If you want to, here's a good way to remove 'green stuff' (copper oxide) from copper coins. •
1. Put some vinegar on your coin (where the oxide is) •
2. Put table salt over the vinegar •
3. Get a napkin and start gently rubbing the green oxide •
4. After the oxide is gone, wash a coin with only warm water and dry it of with a napkin. •
Again, I don't clean coins because you are decreasing the value
Don't have 30 forum posts, but trying to achieve that by 15th December. Sounds like interesting contest
