ÖFN = Österreichische Forschungsgesellschaft für Numismatik (Austrian numismatic research association)

This association of graduates and people interested in the field of numismatics conducts research and is in charge of publications by the Department (Veröffentlichungen des Instituts, VIN). Thus, it provides a publishing platform for academic publications on research areas investigated at the Department. For instance, the second volume of VIN (which, however, was still published by Fassbinder), is a handbook on the classification of European coins from the modern period, which has become a standard reference work: 

  • Bernhard Prokisch: Grunddaten zur europäischen Münzprägung der Neuzeit ca. 1500-1990. Wien 1993. (VIN 2)

The largest project is probably the series "Repertorium zur neuzeitlichen Münzprägung Europas” (finding aid on modern coinage in Europe), led by Bernhard Prokisch. So far, three volumes of this series have been published:

  • Band II: Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation - Der Bayerische Reichskreis. Wien 1996. (VIN 4)
  • Band XVIII: Südosteuropa. Wien 1999. (VIN 5)
  • Band III: Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation - Der Fränkische Reichskreis. Wien 2004. (VIN 9)

You can find the English-language revised editions of the standard reference MIB (Monete Imperii Byzantini) and its accompanying volumes by Wolfgang Hahn and Michael Mettlich in the list of publications here:

  • Wolfgang Hahn und Michael Metlich: Money of the Incipient Byzantine Empire. Anastasius I – Justinian I. Wien 1999.(VIN 6) - not in stock
