Collaborate to the catalogue!

Since a few days ago, a new page to edit the coin catalog is open.
The system has been redesigned so you can easily keep enriching the content of the catalogue, even after the sheets are checked by the administration team. This same team verifies the changes before they are published.
The response to typing errors and the verification of the compliance with copyrights of added pictures have also been improved.

Sharpen your pencils, turn on your camera, grab your books! We count on you to upload better pictures and share your knowledge!

Are you serious about uploading better pictures? Many of the pictures from the World Coin Gallery are too small for my ageing eyes to see clearly, but I can upload larger images of some coins. I haven't done so because I was afraid of treading on toes. Can you confirm this IS what you want???

Hello matt,
Yes I'm serious. Pictures from World Coin Gallery are definitely too small to let see all the coin details.
If you can make good quality picture, that would be great.
I think the best way to make nice picture is too scan the coin with a resolution of 800 dpi or so.

Yes Xavier. That is exactly what I do. I am a part-time professional photographer, so I am experienced in producing pictures of coins, and have uploaded some to Numista already. I shall continue to do so, and where I find I can replace a World Coin Gallery picture with a netter one of my own creation, I shall. I have noticed that other contributors have supplied great quality pictures also.

I found a coin dated 1772. Says Georgivs III REX. It was in a box ready to be thrown in the trash. i found it here in Charleston SC in 2006. On the back it has a Lady(?) sitting on a rock on the left side. In each hand she is holding items. On the front of the coin  Georgivs is looking to the right. I am not a coin collector so I know nothing more about this coin. I do not believe this is a fake. I cant see how someone could fake a coin like this. If anyone wants to buy it call me at 1-843-486-9245 name is Deb

Hello Xavier,

what now I can do when I see error in catalogue ?
For example in Italian list there are type coin that not exist, this is also a Krause error.
Or is not marked the some coins were only PROVA and not in circulation or in collection.

I must advice in forum or contact directly the team ?

kind regards

The best way is to scan the coins on a flat bed scanner with a high resolution of around 600 pixel to get a clear and larger images.
