Recipients of the Forum Award For Numismatic Excellence

This page should only be modified by members of The Forum Website Awards Nomination Committee. If you would like to add a link, please use our Links List page.

Below is a list of the winners of the Forvm Award For Numismatic Excellence and the links to their websites. This list will be updated each time a poll closes. It will also serve as a running total of winners, and be an at-a-glance listing when it comes time for the yearly top three awards.

Certain sites have been given the award for portions of their site, and these are listed in italics where applicable. Certain sites also have their subject matters listed in plain black (non-italicized) lettering. Dates for when the award was given are also listed (mm/dd/yy). Sites belonging to members of Forvm's Discussion Board are listed in maroon, and their Forvm screen names are listed in maroon and parenthesis. The names of deceased Board members are listed in black. The Forvm Award symbol denotes sites which have posted the logo to their webpages.

Sites or content in languages other than English have said languages noted in green.  Sites that offer full or near-full translations in multiple languages have them listed with "and"s.  Sites partially translated into multiple languages or with different sections in different languages have the latter listed with commas.  Sites with only menus, introductions, or other non-content features in different languages have them listed in italics.  English translations are offered when webpage design and translator-availability permit.  When isolated sections of content exist for different languages on a site, direct links to them may be given as well.  When present, you can access these features by clicking on a/the green language-name noted by a desired site.
