On the 100th Year Commemorating of the Armenian Genocide- a new small light begins to emerge: The newly formed ARMENIAN NUMISMATIC AND ANTIQUITES SOCIETY

Did you know that the Armenian people have a five thousand year old history? Whether you are Armenian, have Armenian ancestors, or know an Armenian- this site will help you gain strength and knowledge for your day-to-day life. The Armenian history, revealed through their historical artifacts- whether, ancient or medieval coins, Genocide Orphan carpets, famous 19th-20th century artists or the stone monuments of Petroglyphs, Churches, the Temple of Garni, Nemrad Dagh- shout out a message—where you stand, we once were, here is our record- go now and make yours!

We wish to bring this inspiring Torch of Knowledge to all of you. This blog is open for you to add your thoughts, comments and even submit articles.


The Society is made up of individuals and institutions that have a desire to spread the wonderful historical knowledge of the Armenian people through their artifacts throughout the ages. This includes, but is not limited to

Numismatic coins, medals, paper money

Antiquities including

Books, manuscripts,


Works of Art

Metal works


And much, much more- you bring them forth!

We present a unique forum for you to submit images, articles and comment on the existing ones published. This will connect and expose the whole Internet world to all things historical involving the Armenian people.


We are a new organization welcoming all. At this time our membership categories are not set. We welcome donations to expand and continue the ANA Society. Our goal is to help collectors, dealers, institutions interact for the good of all parties and the dissemination of Armenian historical knowledge.


We welcome dealers to post images along with the story behind that item. If it is for sale, you may list the price as well as a link to your website. Museums and Institutions are welcomed to submit images of their collections along with a write up story.

Collectors hold a special place for us, as we are collectors ourselves. We want to create a place to trade, sell or buy items to enhance your collections. We want to encourage you to send us images of your unique items to be published. Too many great coins and items are hidden from the public because no public forum is willing or available to display them until now. As we are open to all individuals world wide, we cannot scrutinize everyone.   We expect all Society members to behave in an honorably manor. Please read the next paragraph.

Note Disclaimer: the ANAS does not endorse any transaction or warranty the honesty of any collector or dealer. It is your responsibility to perform your own due diligence before you send money or sell to anyone you have met on this site.  See also the link, OTHER TRANSACTIONS for more guidelines.

We do not provide mediation, collect payment or assist a member to complete a transaction. We are educational forum. Our publishing of articles and submitted images is not to be construed as an endorsement of their business practices or items which they sell.


We welcome your thoughts, articles and images. We will publish the Internet version of the “Armenian Numismatic Quarterly. We welcome and are honored to publish University level research articles as a magnificent way educate and spread the knowledge.

We also welcome less formal articles from those who have observations they wish to share. Even conflicting thoughts and articles will be published as a way to stimulate and ultimately arrive at a consensus. If it is important to you, we will review it and our board will review and decide on whether we wish to publish it. Their decision of publishing now or in the future or not at all is their decision alone.

Each member can submit their email with their blog if they wish to be contacted by the public who reads such articles. If not, PLEASE REQUEST THAT YOUR EMAIL IS NOT PUBLISHED.  Also, if you wish to trade, sell or buy an item listed for sale, again, you may authorize us to place your contact information for the public to respond to.
