You Can Research & Publish a Numismatic Book; Tom & I Did

This presentation will cover what decisions need to be made and how we chose to implement them for two very different numismatic publications. The first publication included all numismatic collectibles for Chattanooga Tennessee. Tom and I had extensive collections of this material. However, we needed to research and extend our knowledge beyond what we collected to cover all material in our scope. We decided to publish the information in a CD Adobe Acrobat (pdf format).

The second publication included all obsolete paper money from the state of Tennessee. We had some knowledge of Tennessee scrip. There was very little published information on Tennessee scrip. Therefore, we spent over 12 years researching scrip images and information. We agreed to publish a book using Adobe InDesign.

We created a website for both publications during the period when we were researching that was open to dealers and collectors to follow as we found new images and information. All information and images were credited on the website. The website was closed when we began selling the publications.

A Numismatic Journey through Egyptian Islamic History

This presentation is an overview of Egyptian Islamic history based on a journey through gold Islamic coins minted in Egypt. The journey begins in 170 AH (786 CE) and ends at the fall of the Ottoman Empire and their rule of Egypt during World War I in 1335 AH (1916 CE). This represents approximately 1,200 years of the most interesting times for Egypt and the Mediterranean basin. We will look at gold coins and relate them to the socio-economic events occurring in Egypt and the Mediterranean during that period.

Euro Coins – Cutting-Edge, Continuous, Cultural Contributors

This talk focuses on the imagery of the current Euro coins. Even though all its banknotes have the same design across the Euro-zone; the coins have one nation-specific side. Their designs offer a sneak-peek into European diversity. And even though the coins are lower in economic value; they are higher in value for their contribution towards identity, history, heritage & culture. In recent times money is metamorphosing into an e-avatar, but banknotes and coins (especially in the Eurozone) are still very prevalent. The lowest denomination of the banknotes is 5 euros; coins are still needed for your daily shot of caffeine!

The Story of Siege Money

Sieges punctuate history with accounts of bravery as well as dreadful acts of cruelty...always in the name of justice, often in the name of God. Soldiers who engaged in siege warfare were generally mercenaries and demanded payment for their services. During extended periods of strife, the coin o the realm simply ran out and had to be substituted with something else necessitating the creation of siege money. This talk is designed to familiarize the collector with what siege money is, how it was made, and show the many forms that it takes.
