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.
While the URIs provided by nomisma.org are stable, the project is in progress and subject to constant expansion and ongoing correction. This is particularly the case for the information provided about each nomisma.org identifier.

Nomisma.org is a collaborative project to provide stable digital representations of numismatic concepts according to the principles of Linked Open Data. These take the form of http URIs that also provide access to reusable information about those concepts, along with links to other resources. The canonical format of nomisma.org is RDF/XML, with serializations available in JSON-LD (including geoJSON-LD for complex geographic features), Turtle, KML (when applicable), and HTML5+RDFa 1.1.

While the URIs provided by nomisma.org are stable, the project is in progress and subject to constant expansion and ongoing correction. This is particularly the case for the information provided about each nomisma.org identifier.

The information provided by nomisma.org has been provided by a wide community of scholars and institutions.

The project is steered by a committee currently consisting of:

   Karsten Dahmen, MK Berlin
   Ethan Gruber, ANS
   Sebastian Heath, NYU ISAW
   Chris Howgego, Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford
   Andrew Meadows, University of Oxford
   Ulrike Peter, Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities
   Daniel Pett, BM PAS
   Karsten Tolle, DBIS, University of Frankfurt
   David Wigg-Wolf, DAI RGK

Nomisma.org also hosts the Numismatic Description XML Schema

There are two Github repositories associated with the project. The application code is available in https://github.com/nomisma/framework. The RDF/XML data and ontology versions are in https://github.com/nomisma/data.


Example Nomisma.org URIs

 http://nomisma.org/id/axis. The 'axis' is the angular relationship between the obverse and reverse of a coin.
 http://nomisma.org/id/ephesus. The 'mint' at Ephesus. Nomisma relates this numismatic concept to other URIs such as wikipedia, Pleiades, Getty thesauri, and the British Museum.
 http://nomisma.org/id/quinarius. Nomisma.org maintains lists of Roman and other denominations. To indicate that “quinarius” is a concept within Roman numismatics, the Dublin Core property "dcterms:source" relates this URI to http://nomisma.org/id/roman_numismatics.
