Numismatics Delight

Making numismatists around the world happy, we are proud to announce some important milestones on our catalogs. The Colnect catalogs are breaking records and shooting out 5 pointed stars!

Our Coin catalog now lists 50,005+ coins. The coins catalog has also further developed on the presentation side, showing more detailed information in better ways. Rim, Orientation and Shape have been added to the catalog as well as support for Ancient Coins.

Medal Catalog Surpasses 10,001 Medals

The Medals category has been long discussed and much anticipated before it was finally created in March 2013. Medals, items that are made only for the most special and selected occasions, are precious and rare. Creating a catalog of them, much like the collection of medals, is more like a treasure hunt than regular cataloging.
"Medal Fire for Courage" Bulgaria 1950-1975, from the Colnect catalog
That is why Colnect is extremely proud to announce that the Medals catalog is now displaying over 10,001 Medals! Not only that, but the catalog has a perfect shiny 100% of items with beautiful quality images and completed with usage, composition and Colnect catalog codes. Despite the challenges the creation of a Medals category presents, the coordinators, editors and contributors of the category insisted adding as much information as possible in the best way possible.

We would wholeheartedly like to thank all those have brought this category to light. Thank you to the category coordinator, Hernan Bofill [hbofill12], for his leadership and for the meticulous and relentless work to bring this category to perfection. Special thank you is owed to top talent collaborators Petyo Shopov [PShopov], milanovt600 as well as to hashtablakoo2000 for the creation of the Iranian section. To all the Editors and Contributors, without whom this catalog will not be possible and to all those who supported this category from the very beginning. The catalog itself is a Medal reflecting your amazing efforts :)

Medal Collectors - welcome to Colnect!

We are happy to announce the opening of a new Medals category on Colnect.
"Order of the People's Army with Golden Star" - Yugoslavian medal, from the New Colnect Medals Catalog
A long awaited category, the Colnect Medals Catalog, is home to a unique kind of mass-produced collectible. Medals are a collectible that is, by definition, relatively rare. Many times a collectible Medal is passed on as family heirloom, and each holds a personal meaning that goes beyond the title of the medal alone. The catalog will be open to many kinds and Usages of Medals, from Military, through Education to Sports.
"Humanitarian Service Medal" -  USA medal, from the New Colnect Medals Catalog
The category will be co-coordinated by Hernan Bofill [hbofill12], and [neweden]. There have been a lot of efforts made by devoted collectors, such as the coordinators and more, to bring this category to life. The catalog now holds 272 precious Medals from 10 countries. With the help of more collectors, it can develop into a comprehensive and impressive account of World Medals.
"College of Montreal Medal" - Canadian medal, from the New Colnect Medal Catalog
The category was built at the request and initiative of Colnect Collectors. You can see how the build was developed on the forum. If you would to see how you can contribute and join in on the catalog, you are welcome to read all you need to know on the Catalog Contribution Guidelines page.
