Technological development has introduced an entirely new research environment. Due to the need for new types of scientific resources, and access to the materials, Digital Numismatics (DN) has become a field of dynamically developed tools and research databases.
The number of operating products is already impressive, and the topic of the user perspective on their actual implementation in the research becomes significant. Questions such as: how the new tools change the workflow; is there a quantifiable added value of the digital environment; is there a data distortion danger; how important the previous professional numismatic experience of the user is; etc., need to be posed.
This paper aims to present DN from the user perspective, basing on the experience of the authors with two mints from Thrace, Apollonia Pontica and Pautalia. These examples allow observations both on Greek and Roman numismatics in a region currently proactively engaged in several digital projects.
