What is Numismatics?

Numismatics (from Latin numisma = coins) is the scientific study of all tangible forms and the history of money and similarly shaped items such as coins and cut stones, as well as related items such as coin dies, coin weights, printing techniques, coin legislation, etc.

Numismatics is usually practiced as a collector's hobby or as an investment, but also as a science, the reason being that in excavations, coins are usually the only objects that bear an inscription. In that context, numismatics can be a link between archaeology and written history.
