The NI Bulletin is a premier feature of membership in Numismatics International.  You receive this highly informative periodical six times a year with your membership.  Top writers and numismatists have contributed about three thousand money related articles for over forty years. These articles are all listed, searchable, and available to NI members, after signing in.  This is an excellent research tool and a major benefit of membership in NI.

The NI Bulletin Editorial Staff stresses the “something for everyone” concept by trying to have each bulletin content cover a wide variety of numismatic subjects.  All articles in the NI Bulletin are donated by members or are reprinted from previous works.
