THE WIKIPEDIA NUMISMATICS PORTAL

[In his April 27 blog, Ed Snible discusses the numismatics
activity underway at Wikipedia. -Editor]

"Wikipedia has always had articles on numismatic topics.
It now has a Numismatics WikiProject and a Numismatics Portal.
The portal is a 'face' that presents Wikipedia content
organized for numismatic purposes. The project is an effort
to coordinate folks improving numismatic articles and the
portal. The 'current collaboration' is to improve the Ancient
Greek Coinage article.

"Wikipedia has almost no coverage of numismatic literature.
There is a Numismatics Journals category with just seven
entries. A few books, like The Red Book have Wikipedia entries
but there is no 'Numismatic Book' category to gather them
together."
