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.

NI is now calling for coins/numismatic items for Mail Bid Sale #100
NI provides a major service to its members: the NI Mail Bid Sale. This allows members to sell items which they no longer wish to keep. The next Mail Bid Sale is a major milestone, Number 100, and it will take place in the Spring of 2021. We want this to be a very special Mail Bid Sale. Please consider to send us 30 or more lots of nice individual coins or sets. We do want nice coins, so coins with a catalog value of less than $5.00 cannot be accepted.
Details for listing coins on the Mail Bid Sale can be seen on this website by members. In order to prepare for this Mail Bid Sale, coins must be received no later than November 30, 2020.
