Nomisma.org is a collaborative effort to provide stable digital representations of numismatic concepts and entities, for example the generic idea of a coin hoard or an actual hoard as documented in the print publication An Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards (IGCH). Nomisma.org provides a short, often recognizable, URI for each resource it defines and presents the related information in both human and machine readable form. Creators of digital content can use these stable URIs to build a web of linked knowledge that enables faster acquisition and analysis of well-structured numismatic data.

Example URIs are:

The current data has been contributed by researchers at the American Numismatic Society, Yale University Art Gallery and The University of Paris-Sorbonne Nomisma project. The ANS is grateful to Stanford University for providing financial support. Hosting for Nomisma is provided by the The American Numismatic Society.
