Online Coin Club: still under construction!

Dear visitors, please not that this site is still under construction. Much does not work, or if it does work - there is no sufficient content. Think of this as a "proof of concept" prototype at this point.

Online Coin Club: what is it going to be?

In short: an online resource for coin collectors. It will have a list of countries and provinces which produce or have produced coins; information about the coins themselves such as their characteristics, history, valuations etc. There will be a platform to manage your collection/s, share information with others, exchange and buy/sell coins.

To get a general idea of the information part, you can browse the New Zealand pre-decimal coins, for example this page.

Online Coin Club: what can I do?

The site needs your help! The long-term vision for this site is for it to be a community project. A community of people to do research, publish and verify data, share their collections and generally make the whole thing work.

The site will work for a profit. Since its success depends on the community, the equitable path will be to reward the members of the community for their contributions. Once the community is established, a mechanism for this will be discussed and implemented. Please use the feedback form to write to us now and join the community if you are interested.

The 1920 No Mintmark Australian Shilling

The Museum Victoria numismatic collection has a large number of pattern and proof coins in its collection, acquired mostly from the collection of the former Melbourne Mint, but also from other collections including that of the National Gallery of Victoria. One of the coins that is documented as being transferred from the National Gallery of Victoria collection is 1920-dated Australian shilling with no mintmark. All other known 1920-dated Australian shillings have an M mintmark beneath the date, and no literature makes mention of a no mintmark coin: it has apparently gone unnoticed due to its mis-attribution in the Museum Victoria collection as a 1920M shilling.
