The Royal Numismatic Society - Medals and Prizes

Founded in 1836


The Samir Shamma Prize for Islamic Numismatics

Thanks to the generosity of our late Honorary Fellow Mr Samir Shamma, in 1992 The Royal Numismatic Society established a prize to be awarded every two years for the book or article(s) published, normally and preferably in English, during the previous three years which in the view of the Council is most useful to students of Islamic numismatics.
