How far is the control by the Numista Team

  • The coin page is created but not verified - No information has been verified. On this page, any member can change any information.
  • The coin page is partly verified - Only the years have been verified by the Numista team. To change any information about the years (add or remove) it's mandatory to make a request on the forum "Numista catalog" with a link to the concerned coin page. Only a team member can modify the list of the years.
Any modification (add, modification, suppression) concerning mint mark, comments and mintage will generate an automatic modification request. This request will be processed as soon as possible and will be visible only after validation. It will appear in "The catalog - Change requests".
The description of the coin is not verified. Any member can modify it.
  • The coin page is partly verified - Only descriptive information (weight, alloy, description, pictures...) have been controlled by a team member.

NOTE: Verified in the English catalog or in the French one or in both of them?

The verified status of a coin page is not necessarily the same in the English and French catalog.
When descriptive information has been validated in one language, the common information (numerical data such as years, weight...) are validated in the other language (thus any modification of these data will generate an automatic modification request even if the icons or are not shown).
To swap to the other catalog, just click on the flag on the top of the screen or .
Some information is available in only one language. It's then always useful to switch to the other catalog.
