Classical Numismatic Group and Nomos AG have revived the
journal Classical Numismatic Review and plan to issue the
publication/fixed-price list three times a year.
The venture is an outgrowth of a fixed-price list that both firms
(which are related) have issued for the past six years. The
Classical Numismatic Review was last published in the summer
of 2002, and it was then replaced by CNG’s website. The Review
is the successor publication to the Historical Coin
Review, published by Victor England Ltd., before England and Eric
McFadden formed CNG in 1990.
The revived Classical Numismatic Review offers a digital
catalog of coins for sale, combined with articles, announcements and
even a comic about ancient coin collecting.
It will be published in April, July and October, and CNG intends to
offer material to fit the budget of collectors of all levels.
This month’s edition features a hoard of hacksilber, which are
fragments of metal, coins and jewelry that were treated as bullion.
The Greek section also contains a mina weight from Seleukeia Pieria
and a selection of four Alyattes trites struck from matching portions
of the same dies.
Additional coins from the Gussage All Saints hoard of 2010 are
available in the Roman section, while the world section features a
scarce daalder countermarked during the Dutch Revolt, historically
significant to both Dutch and British collectors.
The spring issue is designated Vol. 34, No. 1 (the volume number
indicates how long England has been in business), and may now be found
