Recent years have seen a huge increase in the volume of numismatic material reported through public finds recording projects (mostly by metal detectorists), notably in Britain and western Europe. Several of these projects are part of the European Public Finds Recording Network (EPFRN), which now includes members from Denmark (DIME), England and Wales (PAS), Finland (Sualt Project/FindSampo), Flanders (MEDEA), and the Netherlands (PAN). This paper provides an overview of the various EPFRN schemes focussing on the nature of the numismatic material they record. It will highlight how this data is currently dealt with and recorded within the remit of each project area. The more than 500,000 coins recorded within the EPFRN represent a significant numismatic dataset with huge potential for numismatic research, both physical and digital.
