Ottawa numismatists Chris Faulkner and Jacob Lipson have launched the Occasional Numismatic Papers, a new online publication devoted to original Canadian numismatic research.
“The idea behind these Papers is simply to create a fresh venue for interesting research on numismatic topics along with a forum for numismatic notes and queries,” reads a statement the duo issued on April 7.
The first issue, published on April 18, includes articles titled “Chasing Joseph Moreau” and “The St. Amant Mystery and McLachlan’s Hoard of Canadian Coppers.” It’s available – along with all future issues – through the Newman Numismatic Portal at bit.ly/3KzdNsn.
“The Papers are privately published by the editors and are not the publication of any numismatic association, organization, society, or club,” adds the recent statement from Faulkner, the former chair of the J. Douglas Historical Research Foundation, and Lipson, the president of the Ottawa Numismatic Society.
The publication is freely accessible with no subscription fees or membership dues, and it’s not financially supported by a third party
