Inaugurated on 20 May 2021 the ikmk.net is a new web portal of public numismatic collections.
Public coin collections, which are using the documentation software of the Münzkabinett Berlin (ikmk.smb.museum), are representing the ikmk family (currently 30 partner institutions). These include the Berlin and Vienna cabinets, the Herzog-Anton-Ulrich-Museum, the Münzkabinett Winterthur, and members of the Network of German University Coin Collections which can be browsed in a shared portal of more than 98,000 individual object entries.
Other coin collections in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Greece, will be joining ikmk.net.
Object entries share a common standard using identifiers and Linked Open Data. The use of ikmk.net is free, and licensed by individual Creative Commons statements.
Any future developments of IKMK will be provided for free to all partners. The use of such shared concepts and identifiers will advance the exchange of data both internally and with international research networks and portals.
