BENEFITS AVAILABLE WITH NUMISMATICS INTERNATIONAL MEMBERSHIP
NI BULLETIN, A periodic publication averaging 32 pages per issue. The NI Bulletin editorial Staff stresses the "something for everyone" concept by trying to have each bulletin content cover a wide variety of numismatic subjects. All articles in the NI Bulletin are donated by members or are reprinted from old works. Our Yahoo! Group lists most of the articles from the past four decades. Members can request copies of these articles! This is an EXCELLENT research tool and a major benefit of membership in N.I.
MEMBER NOTICE PAGE - A page of the Nl Bulletin is reserved each month for "free" member notices. The only restriction is no "for sale" notices which include prices. For sale items may be listed without price. Also, research type notices will be given preference over "wanted", "will buy", etc. notices.
MAIL BID SALES - A committee conducts periodic mail bid sales of members' items and tries to schedule two of these sales each year. These mail bid sales are an outlet for your extra numismatic items and also a source for new acquisitions for your collection. A small handling fee will be charged.
NI LIBRARY - Numismatics International has a library of over 2,800 titles devoted primarily to foreign numismatics. Members may borrow any material in the library for a thirty-day period for the postage and insurance costs both ways. The Library also contains color slide programs which may be used by members who wish to give programs to their local organizations for individual research. Each slide program is supplemented with a text written by the speaker who gave the original program. Please see our NI Library page for more information. Our Yahoo Numismatics group has a searchable database of all of our titles available for US distribution.
NI REFERENCE COLLECTION - Through the generosity of members a standard reference collection of world coinage and paper money is being built. As the collection grows to sufficient size to be of benefit, coinages of specific areas will be available to members for research purposes.
