Numismatic Society expects the American
Journal of Numismatics, volume 26, to be published this
spring. It includes articles by 11 authors on topics ranging from the
last Seleucids in Phoenicia to an 18th century coin hoard from Sicily.
Also coming this spring is the new book Medallic Art of the American Numismatic
Society, 1865–2014 (Studies in Medallic Art 2), by Scott H.
Miller. It is the first comprehensive monograph in a hundred years
on the medals issued by the ANS and includes 60 medals produced by the
ANS or endorsed by the ANS.
The ANS has an established history in medallic art, and the book’s
description states, “With the exception of the United States Mint, no
U.S. entity can boast so long and distinguished a contribution in this
area. Founded in 1858, the American Numismatic and Archaeological
Society, as it was known from 1864-1907, believed the issuance of
medals to be a part of its mission from the earliest years of its existence.”
The 181-page book will be available this spring for $150, with a
member price of $105.
Also available for pre-order is
Kushan, Kushano-Sasanian, and Kidarite Coins: A
Catalogue of Coins from the American Numismatic Society by
David Jongeward and Joe Cribb, with Peter Donovan.
The authors explain, “The Kushan Empire was a vast inland empire
that stretched across Central and South Asia during the first to
fourth centuries AD. The origins of Kushan dynasty continue to be
debated, and precise dates, especially for the late Kushan kings,
remain elusive, but the coinage reveals the Kushan dynasty as a major
force in the cultural and political history of the ancient Silk Road.”
The 414 page book is intended to be a tool for scholars and
collectors alike for understanding, identifying, and attributing these
fascinating coins that represent four centuries of Central and South
Asian ancient history. It will also be available this spring for $150,
with a member price of $105.
