American Journal of Numismatics

American Journal of Numismatics, First Series, 1866-1924

The American Journal of Numismatics, established in 1866, was the first periodical of the American Numismatic Society. The first AJN published notices and minutes from meetings of the Society and included papers delivered at these gatherings; however, at this early stage the content of the journal was directed more towards coin collectors than scholars. The ANS discontinued publication of the "first series" in 1924. Museum Notes was then introduced in 1945, performing a similar function to that of the first series of the AJN, but with a greater scholarly emphasis. Museum Notes was in turn succeeded by the second series of the American Journal of Numismatics in 1989. The first series was published: monthly from May 1866-April 1870; quarterly from July 1870-October 1912; and annually from 1913-1924.

American Journal of Numismatics, Second Series, 1989-present

The second series of the American Journal of Numismatics is the successor to Museum Notes. This publication continues as a scholarly journal containing articles on numismatic topics, book reviews, and obituaries of notable figures in the field. The second series of the AJN has been published: annually from 1989-1990; bi-annually from 1991-96; and annually from 1997-present.
