Numismatic Literature

Numismatic Literature was the Society's bibliographic reference to numismatic publications from around the world. It had been published since 1947 as a comprehensive overview of current numismatic literature. The final published volume is No. 149.

Each issue contains, under broad subject headings, a listing of recent articles and books relating to numismatics. The titles and abstracts are submitted either by the authors themselves or by one of nearly 40 international editors who are themselves well-known numismatists. Each NumLit volume has an author and a subject index, cross references, a listing of the sources for book reviews, and an obituary section.

Numismatic Literature is published both in print and as an on-line reference.
