Dear friends,
The annual meeting of the Oriental Numismatic Society in the Netherlands, will be held on Saturday 20 October 2018 at the premises of the Leiden University, Cleverdingaplaats 1 at Leiden. Members of continental Europe may be separately informed with the next Journal #233.
Till then and for all others who didn’t receive the program of the meeting, it can be found at the ONS-website http://www.onsnumis.org/leiden2018.shtml
Some of the topics of the meeting will be:
• Yiğit Altay: Introduction on the coinage of the Ilkhans (Mongols of Persia);
• Karan Singh: Legends on Yaudheya Coins;
• Sid Satbhai: Financial Instruments of the Indian National Army;
• Patrick Pasmans: Tokens of the Habib Bank.
• Paul Stevens: Work in progress.
As usual there will also be room for questions, news items, etc. Members are invited to come forward with it. Traditionally, at the end of the meeting a small auction of Oriental coins and related books will be held. The proceeds of this auction is a welcome addition to the ONS-funds. For the auction list see: http://www.onsnumis.org/auctions/auct2018.pdf
All the lots of this auction has been uploaded at the ZENO.RU Oriental Coins Database. https://www.zeno.ru/showgallery.php?cat=15330
Absentee bids for this auction are welcome and need to be sent, either by post or e-mail to me.
People who want to attend the meeting are requested to inform me at the latest before the 17th of October 2018.

At last, a date on which I can attend! I'll be there and I hope to meet you and prhaps other WoC members. Maybe you have a few minutes on such a busy day, so we can discuss what came out of the Dublin meeting?

In case you are a former Leiden student: the address is that of the Lipsius building.

Also, in line with our anti-spam policy, I removed your email address. People who want to contact you can send you a PM. It's the same thing as an email, but spammers can't use it. We don't want email harvesting bots to cause you discomfort with a flood of spam or worse.

Special note for bookworms: I noted a copy of Saran Singh among the items to be auctioned. This book is hard to find in Europe.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
