The study of Visigothic monetary circulation is one of the key issues in the field of Visigothic numismatics. The most complete work on the subject is almost half a century old and many things have changed since then; new hoards and isolated finds have entered the corpus of Visigothic coinage. Recently, partial studies on the Visigothic kingdom have used numismatic evidence to support theories concerning taxation, trade between different areas of the Iberian Peninsula, and gaps in activity and circulation in certain areas. But how many coins are we really talking about? In this paper, we present the progress made on this issue in the context of the FLAME (Framing the Late Antique and early medieval economy) project.
