The ANS has an active publication program that began in 1866 with the first numismatic periodical in the United States, and continues today with a variety of publications on all aspects of numismatics.

The scope of our publications includes books, conference papers, journals, and a magazine, all advancing the state of the art in numismatic research, making the latest findings widely accessible to the numismatic community, and introducing numismatics to a wider public.

Periodicals

The American Journal of Numismatics is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published annually, containing original research in all areas of numismatics.

The Journal of Early American Numismatics (formerly The Colonial Newsletter) is a research journal devoted to the colonial and Confederation-period coinages of the United States and other countries in the Americas, published twice a year.

The full-color ANS Magazine is published quarterly and presents feature articles on a wide range of numismatic topics as well as keeping members up to date on the Society's work.

Books and Monographs

The ANS publishes three monograph series: Numismatic Notes and Monographs (NNM), Numismatic Studies (NS), and Studies in Medallic Art (SMA). These series comprise book-length works of original scholarship in all areas of numismatics. We also frequently publish books outside of these series, including numismatic research works as well as exhibition catalogues, conference proceedings, and Festschrifts. Author guidelines for book manuscript proposals can be found here.

History

The ANS has published many other works, including some notable series. In the 19th century, the first numismatic periodical in the United States—the first series of the American Journal of Numismatics—was founded by the ANS, while many lectures presented at ANS meetings were published in the Society's Proceedings.

In the 20th century, there was a short-lived series funded by Archer Huntington, the Hispanic Numismatic Series, to publish the coins from Huntington's collection. Two series published fully illustrated but tersely described corpora of ancient coins: the Ancient Coins in North American Collections series for ancient coins in significant American collections—mostly private—and the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum series for coins in the Greek department of the ANS. The latter two have now been replaced by online resources.
