The Numismatic Chronicle is the Society’s annual peer-reviewed journal, sent to all Fellows as part of the membership package. Articles embrace the full range of numismatic topics.

This index is being continually up-dated, so articles in the most recent volumes of the Chronicle may not show up immediately. By area these are (in alphabetical order):



Contributing to The Numismatic Chronicle

The editors welcome articles and short notes on any numismatic topic. Members and non-members are welcome to submit pieces for consideration. For information on contributing to the NC click here.

We request that authors delay for 2 years before publishing their typeset article independently on the web but the Chronicle is fully compliant with current HEFCE guidelines for academic Open Access: authors are welcome to publish a typescript (not the final typeset article) in their university repository (or on or similar) at the point of acceptance.
