About as-Sikka

star1.JPG (775 bytes)Description:
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.

We have shed the traditional publishing methodology and publish One volume per year. This volume, however, will be continually added to, and updated throughout the year, and will become final when the year is done.
