SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: P K SAHA, ULTRA MODERN NUMISMATIST

No, not Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery, but our newest subscriber may already be known to many of you for posts on various forums with images and information on new coin issues from around the world, a niche known as "ultra modern numismatics".

One of the coins posted recently is the Falkland Islands Crown commemorating the Charles Darwin bicentenary (pictured below).


P K Saha writes:
I am an amateur numismatist with an interest in ultra modern numismatics. This is a branch which deals with coins before they are issued to the moment they get cataloged (or assigned KM# by the Krause Standard Catalog of World Coins).

Since I collect this information, I find it little more work to help my friends with similar interests, so I give this information to the COINS list and some others too, like www.worldcoinnews.blogspot.com etc.

I am approved contributor to SCWC 2001- till date. And despite my .uk email address, I do not live in the UK - I live in India.

Welcome to The E-Sylum, and many thanks for your efforts. The modern numismatist's work is never done - new issues appear almost daily from all corners of the globe. It's a great challenge to keep track of them all. -Editor
