as-Sikka has been established to promote the study of Islamic
numismatics through the e-publication of research articles, review articles,
communications, and shorter reviews and studies. It is designed to allow members of the
Islamic Coins Group as well as other contributors, to participate in activating Islamic
numismatic research in a free and easily accessible medium.
