The Numismatist  Digital Archives

More than 110,000+ Pages of Numismatic History at Your Fingertips!

The American Numismatic Association is excited to announce its digital archives of all volumes of its flagship publication, The Numismatist.  ANA members can access every issue of the magazine, from 1888 to the present.

Helpful search features guide you to the information you seek, including relevant links to useful resources, an easily accessible table of contents, and indices with live links.

You Are There!

The online editions look exactly like the printed originals, allowing you to experience The Numismatist in its historical context—something the average website can’t offer. Each archived page can be downloaded and printed, as well as bookmarked, cited and referenced by registered users.
