Digital Library NUMIS
Welcome to Digital Library Numis (DLN). This website is aimed to provide a major portal and digital archive for numismatic books and articles on coins, medals and related subjects, which can be consulted here online. The main body of this project consists of a variety of beautifully illustrated classics produced from the 16th until the 20th century, but you will also find here many publications from a more recent date.

This work is still under construction und will be updated on a regular basis.

Wow! Someone's done a lot of legwork. There are hundreds of online books in all languages here, quite a library in itself. Here are just a few examples that caught my eye.

Curiosities of American Coinage


I'm familiar with most of the 19th century works on U.S. numismatics, but I don't remember coming across this one before. Interesting item from an obscure journal - just the sort of thing to pop up out of the woodwork as more and more of the world's libraries are digitized.

Another rare item is shown below - an 1887 Maryland Historical Society paper on the National Medals of the United States. I believe this was referenced in the recent books on the subject. -Editor
