Oxford University Numismatic Society is delighted to announce its call for papers for an online colloquium on the afternoon of Tuesday 30th November 2021. This virtual event held over MS Teams will aim to explore various aspects of base metal coinage(s) and the motives behind its production. We invite contributions from postgraduate students and ECR researchers from any institution on any period or coinage. We hope to welcome three speakers to deliver talks of 30 minutes each (with additional time for questions and responses). Topics might include:

  • Political messages on base metal coinages
  • Fiduciary money and fiduciarity
  • The circulation and quantification of base metal coinage
  • Social and cultural aspects of base metal coinage and money
  • Hoards and/or base metal coins in their archaeological contexts
  • History of collections and base metal coins
  • Fakes and plated coins
  • Money and medallions in base metals

Abstracts of no more than 400 words (excluding a short bibliography) should be sent to for consideration by the organising committee by Monday 20th September 2021. Speakers will be contacted shortly thereafter. If you have any further questions, please contact the Secretary by email at
