Welcome to Numismatics International
Coin of The Month
This month we recognize the death of Napoleon Bonaparte in May of 1821. His second exile was to the island of St. Helena, 1150 miles to the west of Angola, in the southern Atlantic Ocean. The Portuguese had discovered the uninhabited island in 1502. Representatives of the British East India Company established the first settled community there to serve the needs of the transport ships of the highly influential company.
The collecting of international numismatic items (coins, currency and exonumia) can be a fun and interesting hobby. Anyone with a desire to learn of the history of civilizations and countries can learn what was considered to be so important that their money proudly displayed it. Others wish to learn or teach finer details of unique coins. Education and the sharing of knowledge is a primary focus of NI, with the scholarly NI Bulletin, the library and the publications. In addition, the semi-annual Bid Sale allows members to acquire items of interest or to sell excess numismatic items. This is done in a spirit of friendship with members who have similar interests.
