VOCABULARY TERMS: ALL ABOUT DIES

Dick Johnson submitted this item about his Encyclopedia of Coin and Medal Terminology, noting that more terms have the word Die in them than any other. So here's the list. Thanks! -Editor

Die Terms Since coins and medals are formed of metal, the metalworking field has a large number of terms with Die in their name. There are 61 such terms. Numismatists use these terms and have added terms of their own in describing and conversing on coins and medals. There are 37 such numismatic terms. Both categories are necessary and included in the Encyclopedia of Coin and Medal Technology.

To find the full entry of any term – like the one on Jack Die in last week’s E-Sylum – see the Newman Portal under Dictionary.
