A good collection of coins needs a good documentation. But a complete documentation is often difficult to build, especially if you collect coins from many countries. This is why certain Numista members are willing to share their documentation by allowing you to access their numismatic references.

You will find below a list of the current numismatic references in the Numista library, classified by continent, then by country. Simply click the nickname of the member you would like consult and, through PM, ask him/her your question!

If you have a book, whether listed here or not, you may contribute to the library by sending a detailed list to monéphil or to Jedsada . Please specify the title of the work, the main author, the year of edition, the country in question, and the time period.
We request that you do not share any scans to public areas of the web to avoid breaking copyright laws.. For downloadable works, check this article: Numismatic books for download.
