Thanks and Credits

This project is an experiment in collaboration between an educational institution, private collectors, and businesses. While the site is not for profit and seeks to provide only educational information, it would have been impossible to create without the generosity of private collectors professional numismatists who let us use their coin images and descriptions. Moreover, several people at Austin College helped and encouraged the creation of this site. I would like to express my gratitude to them here.


The project began with a small grant from the Cullen Foundation to build a small teaching collection of Roman coins. Thanks are due to the Cullen Foundation and Dr. David Jordan, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Austin College, for their support. I am grateful to Guy Clark for his generous help in assembling the collection and to Teresa Darling for her help with teaching projects and her general kindness. I also wish to acknowledge Matt Sersch and Raymond Davis for their donations to the collection.

The Web site itself has been built up over many hundreds of hours which have had to be taken from other projects. Special thanks are due to Miranda Mathis for collecting and arranging materials, editing (and writing) descriptions, and creating Web pages. Thanks are also due to Molly Simpson for collecting material from various Internet resources. Finally, thanks are owed to Austin College for hosting the site.

Special thanks for enabling the catalog to be converted from static web pages to a dynamic database is owed to Julie Bergfeld, Webmaster for Austin College, Molly Simpson, and the Cullen Fund for Teaching.


We are extremely grateful for the support of several persons who have allowed us to copy their digitized coin images and edit their descriptions. Photo credits are attributed to the numismatists themselves. Their information is as follows:
