© 2019 Numismatic Society of Ireland (Northern Branch) 

Exploring
two and a half millenia of
world and Irish coinage

Say "Hi!" to Num-NI!

The Numismatic Society of Ireland (Northern Branch) first met in 1963 as a group of local enthusiasts and scholars to share their interest in the history and art of world coinage. For over 50 years our Society has been promoting the hobby and the study of coins locally and across Ireland and the UK. We meet regularly to exchange news, display recent acquisitions and raise awareness of emerging market trends, discoveries and opportunities. JOIN US to find out for yourself the joy and challenge of coin collecting and studying! Young members with an interest in coins and medals are particularly welcome, and will benefit a lot from our expertise and support! 

FREE Coin Identification!

Avail yourself of our immense expertise by submitting photographs of both sides of your unidentified coin, medal or token, ideally alongside a ruler, to get full details on what it is and some useful references. We DO NOT BUY OR SELL COINS, neither do we provide grading and evaluation services, but you can always contact COIN DEALERS in Belfast who will be happy to advise on the value and market prices. 

Pick of the Week!

Coming Soon!

CONTACT US to join our members attending the numismatic events in Ireland and UK.

ENGRAVED TOKENS AS A SOCIAL MEDIA

This worn George III penny (courtesy of Coin-Tiki), crudely engraved with a hangman on a gibbet mottoed ‘end of pain’, imitates the Conder token struck in Britain for supporters of E. Burke who was widely condemning visionary ideas of Thomas Paine, a Godfather of the American Revolution and a fierce critic of the monarchy and aristocracy of the Age of Enlightenment. Perhaps, the engraving was made to celebrate the death of T. Paine in NYC in 1809. What an age!
