The ‘Münzfundkatalog Mittelalter/Neuzeit’ of the German Numismatic Commission has been a long-term project since 1950. It comprises today approx. 22,000 summary entries on hoards and single coin finds from the period AD 750 to the 20th century. Over the past 20 years, it has been digitized, now as a part of the KENOM project, and updated in cooperation with various heritage conservation offices in Germany. Since 2021, a large number of these finds has been made available for general research through a new online portal: By linking find information to the inventory records of individual coins, the coins from many assemblages can now also be displayed. A central point in the new portal is the automatic enrichment of the records with additional information available via LOD. This makes the portal better and easier to use for a wide range of users also outside the field of numismatics.
