Ancient coin identification help
« on: May 18, 2008, 09:57:17 PM »
Here is the link that most ancient coin collectors use to help identify the coins:
www.wildwinds.com

Another good one is  www.dirtyoldcoins.com

As I find more I will add them.

Provincial Romans website

I have been working recently with my friend William Peters to revamp his website, which can be found at http://provincial-romans.com/provincial

It is, as far as I know, the first coin site to integrate with an amazing (well, in my opinion) new facility called PicLens.  When installed, it permits websites to provide a 3-D gallery of their images.  It hooks into google image search, amazon, and youtube amongst others.  More details at www.PicLens.com.  If you have this installed, it really adds to the experience of William's site, at least in his and my opinions.

I think that is an excellent looking and very helpful web site. This is not my collecting area, but I hade fun wafting through and taking it all in. Sites like these advance the cause of numismatics and help coin collecting win from Nintendo :(

I couldn't get piclens to work (not only on this site, but on all sites), but that's a different story.

Here's another one yo may enjoy: late Roman bronzes. An added attraction is that most of these coins are really cheap:

Since dirtyoldcoins.com was mentioned in the initial post, let me add some more dirty old stuff ... Don't collect ancients myself, but I saw this link elsewhere: The 2005 edition of Rasiel Suarez's "Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial Coins" (ERIC) is now available as a free download (Creative Commons License). "Among its main features, this work combines a comprehensive listing of bust and reverse types, legends and mints for all imperial rulers from the time of Augustus through the downfall of Rome as well as an introduction into the Byzantine corpus."

This a .zip file, >60 MB, so the download may take a few seconds. :)

I would agree with that. Kevin is very good at what he does. His site has improved over the yrs. Kevin has been really good with people just starting out in the roman coin world.

Id like to recommend my humble database:

http://www.arminius-numismatics.com/coppermine1414/cpg1414/index.php?cat=10001&lang=english_gb

Its not very big but still growing. There are a couple of otherwise unlisted ancients - and its free of advertising.

Beside the ancient world i try to add interesting types of all periods and regions plus background information in this section:

http://www.arminius-numismatics.com/coppermine1414/cpg1414/index.php?cat=10

(As im not an expert with the help of others and the web.)

Sometimes even other collectors contribute a coin.

Werner I think your site is wonderful. And the coins on there, amazing. I also like the descriptions of the ancient towns and what they are now.

I bookmarked this site to use for reference.
