Newman Numismatic Portal

The goal of the Newman Numismatic Portal is to create the world’s most comprehensive online encyclopedia of American and Colonial coinage, currency, realia, and related correspondence and published literature. Materials from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society’s coin collections and supporting reference libraries will be digitized along with Washington University Libraries’ collections and made freely available to an online community of scholars and enthusiasts.

Eric P. Newman, numismatic scholar, was born in St. Louis in 1911. The Newman archives include papers from the estate of Burdette G. Johnson, a St. Louis dealer active in the first half of the 20th century. Newman further maintained personal correspondence files with hundreds of individuals beginning in the 1930s and extending into the 2010s. Newman also created research files on a variety of topics with particular focus on the pre-Federal era numismatics.
Following the success of last October's National Numismatic Collection feature presentation, this NNP Symposium we'll be highlighting the Hansen Collection. Join us for a video overview, followed by a Q&A with curator John Brush. This is a look at the Hansen Collection like you've never seen before! Presented as part of the Newman Portal Symposium, April 8-10, 2022.

You may ask, “why were there special kinds of money used in prisons, jail and reformatories?” There are good reasons not to allow legal tender coins and bills in the hands of prisoners. The ready availability of such currency could encourage bribery, extortion, gambling and facilitate acquisition of contraband and escapes. Still, there needs to be some type of money so that inmates can purchase discretionary items, such as snacks, tobacco, toiletries and reading and writing supplies. This...

This Handbook is just what it sets out to be, and what is needed in the field of Jewish Coinage. Mel Wacks has contributed mightily to this field. And this Handbook - replacing his first version with an entirely new revision - is among his most important gifts. Somehow, Mel has managed to provide a work that is succinct without being superficial; that summarizes all the important material rather than limiting coverage through exclusion; and that simplifies complicated issues without...
