Requesting Review[edit]

Hello all, here on WikiProject Numismatics,

I created an article in late April this year - Bank of England £100,000,000 note - but have only recently found the time to commit to it, and after hours of trying to figure out why my citations were creating errors and shifting things around a bit to make the layout a bit more slick and formal and of course adding some actual detail instead of a single sentence for the whole article, I've finished expanding it for today. But, before I continue, could someone from here on WikiProject Numismatics have a quick read over it and report back to me if any of it needs removing (waffle and off-topic), or anything which wasn't made clear and needs adding? It definitely needs much more vigorous improvement but I don't know where to start so I've come here! Unfortunately the info box is quite hard to fill out due to how little is actually known about the note.

An interesting topic! I'll drop some comments in the next day or two.--Wehwalt (talk) 03:44, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! I look forward to editing it more in the near future. TheBestEditorInEngland (talk) 02:19, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

I created a new award to replace the Numismatics Barnstar (I know it's been only a few months since I created that). I would like to know what everyone thinks. - ZLEA T\C 00:16, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Jew with a coin DYK[edit]

Does the Jew with a coin DYK count as a numismatics DYK? - ZLEA T\C 19:07, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Probably.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:30, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
To give more thought to that. I would say that our scope includes exonumia and uses of coins or coin images outside of commerce. For example, use of coins (real or simulated) in amulets is known in China and Japan. I'd say we take the broad picture, if for no other reason than there's not likely to be a conflict with other projects.--Wehwalt (talk) 21:31, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

2019 US Banknote Contest[edit]

November-December 2019

There are an estimated 30,000 different varieties of United States banknotes, yet only a fraction of these are represented on Wikimedia Commons in the form of 2D scans. Additionally, Colonial America, the Confederate States, the Republic of Texas, multiple states and territories, communities, and private companies have issued banknotes that are in the public domain today but are absent from Commons.

In the months of November and December, WikiProject Numismatics will be running a cross-wiki upload-a-thon, the 2019 US Banknote Contest. The goal of the contest is to increase the number of US banknote images available to content creators on all Wikimedia projects. Participants will claim points for uploading and importing 2D scans of US banknotes, and at the end of the contest all will receive awards. Whether you want to claim the Gold Wiki or you just want to have fun, all are invited to participate.

If you do not want to receive invitations to future US Banknote Contests, follow the instructions here
