About the Journal

Koinon is an annual, peer-reviewed academic journal for classical numismatic studies that encourages contributions from a wide variety of perspectives. It publishes papers on western and non-western coinages from the origins (c. 650 BC) until early modern times (c. AD 1400). Papers can be any length, from short notes to lengthy essays, and there is also a special section for publishing newly discovered type varieties. The editors are especially interested in papers that approach numismatics through an interdisciplinary lens, helping fill out the historical narrative by employing the best methodological approaches of various disciplines.  Die studies, provenance research, forgery analysis, corpora of rare varieties and types, and ethical questions on laws and collecting are also encouraged, as are book reviews.
