As I checked my mail in the morning I suddenly saw someone add links to Numista where it is used as a reference on Wikipedia, apparently a user named "AndriiKhmelkov" just launched this article:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numista

maybe if we work together we could expand it, but make sure to use third-party information about Numista (so written by people not associated with Numista) to keep it as neutral and informative as possible. ;)

Anyone taking bets on whether it'll be shut down within a month? :O

Seriously though, this looks great!

'''Numista''', is a [[website]] containing catalog of world [[coin]]s, [[Token coin|tokens]] and [[exonumia]]. This specialized website allows collectors to manage their personal [[collecting|collection]] using catalogs and automatically match their swap/wish-lists with other collectors. Numista is one of the major sources of circulated currency and [[Coin collecting|collectible]] coin values.<ref>{{cite book|last=H.G.M. |first=Eggenkamp-Vlaanderen|title=The Netherlands: Catalogue of permanent circulation coin and paper money types|url={{Google books|-8aMDAAAQBAJ|keywords=numista.com|plainurl=yes}}}}</ref>

In 2018 Numista introduced functionality that computes an approximate [[market value]] of coins. [[Median]] values of each particular coin date and grade are based on 'coin purchase price' provided by website users.

Haha! That's funny because just two days ago I checked to see if Numista had a Wikipedia page--it didn't. Looks like it may not last long, though.

'''Numista''' is a [[website]] containing a catalog of world [[coin]]s, [[Token coin|tokens]] and [[exonumia]]. The website allows collectors to manage their personal [[collecting|collection]] using the catalog by data input and subsequently matches their swap/wish-lists with other collectors automatically. Claiming to have over 120,000 registered coins, Numista is one of the major sources of circulated currency and [[Coin collecting|collectible]] coin values.<ref>{{cite book|last=H.G.M. |first=Eggenkamp-Vlaanderen|title=The Netherlands: Catalogue of permanent circulation coin and paper money types|url={{Google books|-8aMDAAAQBAJ|keywords=numista.com|plainurl=yes}}}}</ref>

== History ==
Numista was created in March 2007 by Xavier Rogé as ''Cypraea.'' It was originally created based on a world coin catalog but it has expanded since then due to the growing community.<ref name="about">{{cite web| url=https://en.numista.com/info.php| title=More about Numista| website=en.numista.com}}</ref> The resource is currently maintained by its founder Xavier with the assistance of voluntary, registered users who contribute to Numista's catalog of world coins by correction and addition of data.

In 2011, the [[United Kingdom|British]] website Tax Free Gold accused Numista of [[copyright infringement]] for not attributing the proper source of coin images. However, this was resolved in January 2011 after Numista began adding copyright notices that link to Tax Free Gold.<ref>Tax Free Gold [https://taxfreegold.co.uk/numista.com.html Numista Xavier Rogé Roubaix, France (numista.com) & Copyright Theft]. Retrieved: 27 June 2018.</ref>

On January 28 of the same year, the website announced it had reached a total of 2,000 registered coins listed on the catalog. According to Xavier Rogé, the name of the website was altered to ''Numista'' to commemorate the milestone. The name has remained unchanged since then. Two months later, a forum for discussion was added to the site as part of the expansion.<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20080831113208/http://www.numista.com:80/?lang=en|title=Numista, your coin collection online|date=2008-08-31|access-date=2018-06-28}}</ref>

On March 26, 2011, Numista launched a new section of the website named ''Numisdoc'' "aimed to gather knowledge on numistic ''[sic; numismatic]'' knowledge and create user guides for Numista by the creation of articles" in accordance with the message of its founder Xavier. <ref>{{Cite web|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20110512081226/http://en.numista.com/|title=Numista|date=2011-05-12|access-date=2018-06-28}}</ref>

Just an idea: What if it´s mentioned in the Wikipedia article that several renowned auction houses have given us rights to use their pictures in the catalogue? Can this help as a third party acknowledgment?

Yeah, just make sure that you use these third parties, if no independent sources mention Numista then unfortunately the article will be deleted(, again).​ :(

Such a shame, I wasn't allowed to comment in the deletion discussion and all the people did there was basically "vote" without making arguments, note that the Wikipedia community cares very little about building an encyclopedia and love to brag about deletions, "the bigger the better"​ as the nominator even keeps a (proud) log of all of their proposed deletions. Hopefully people will translate the article to other languages as it could then be translated back into English + more languages if someone were to add it to let's say the Mandarin Chinese Wikipedia or Ukrainian Wikipedia.

I'm very disappointed about the deletion. I've already added 20 verifiable sources, and yet they were still viewing it as if it was none.

I'm very salty with the deletor, so I deleted some of his article- ACCORDING TO WP:MUSIC, SOME OF HIS ARTICLES DO NOT MEET THE NEEDED REQUIREMENTS, HENCE THE NOMINATION FOR DELETION.
