In cooperation with the State Coin Cabinet of the Moritzburg Art Museum in Halle (Saale) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation, the State Office for Monument Preservation and Archaeology in Saxony-Anhalt has embarked on a digital recording and indexing of ca. 18,500 coin finds, medieval to modern age. The digitization and publication of coin finds from Saxony-Anhalt will create a database useful for reconstructing the currency and economic areas in Central Germany. The digitization is carried out using OSCAR (Optical System for Coin Analysis and Recognition) to scan and identify the coins through obtaining their individual “digital fingerprint”. In addition, 2½ D images of each coin are created in just a few minutes. The images and numismatic information on each coin are continuously made available to the public via the KENOM-database.
