The American Numismatic Society Hellenistic Royal Coinages

In a post by the Numismatic Bibliomania Society in their E-Sylum of June 2, 2019, you can see where the ANS announced the launch of a new online resource, Hellenistic Royal Coinages (HRC). The HRC covers Hellenistic coinage from ca. 323 to 31 BC. This site currently includes the coins struck by Alexander the Great and successor states, like the Seleukids and Ptolemies. Notably, the new HRC website serves as a "Union Catalogue" of existing online resources devoted to Hellenistic coinages. Users can search across all these sites simultaneously.

These sites include:
PELLA (, focused on coins naming Alexander the Great
Seleucid Coins Online (
Ptolemaic Coins Online (

A future version could include other Hellenistic dynasties including the Antigonid, Attalid, and Bactrian dynasties.
