Coins Reaching 66,666 on Colnect

In an appropriate tribute to the year 2016, we're happy to celebrate Colnect Coins catalog passing the 66,666 Coins mark.



This year we have seen a lot of positive progress for Numismatic collectibles on Colnect. Maybe most importantly, we've seen the addition of the Year Variants in the coins catalog.
1 Mahbub (With rose) Gold Coin from Egypt, 1730, from the Colnect catalog  
With over a thousand new coins added every month, the coins catalog is growing in impressive speed. The speed does not come at the expense of the quality of the catalog, that maintains it's high standards for information and images.
The success of the catalog is due to the impeccable work of the coordinators, Angelo Parla [angelo13] and HernĂ¡n Bofill [hbofill12], and the dedicated editors and contributors of the category.
1 Sovereign (Victoria Queen) Gold Coin from Australia, 1855, from the Colnect catalog
