American Journal of Numismatics

The American Journal of Numismatics annually publishes original research in all areas of numismatics, in the form of articles or short notes. Articles relating numismatic research to wider questions of economic and social history, archaeology, and related disciplines are particularly welcome. Questions and proposals should be emailed to Nathan T. Elkins (ancient topics) or David Yoon (medieval, modern, and other, non-ancient topics).
