Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics/Cryptocurrency task force[edit]

So I just did a overhaul to the main project page of Wikipedia:WikiProject Cryptocurrency like adding a orange-like color format to the page and made a userbox and a barnstar, but I'm now finding out there is a task force also for Cryptocurrency via Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics/Cryptocurrency task force. Was WikiProject Cryptocurrency approved through here instead of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals? Or did anyone here not know about WikiProject Cryptocurrency?

I think we're very shorthanded and probably these things go unnoticed.--Wehwalt (talk) 23:03, 19 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, and a lot of editors are becoming less active too. I had marked like three WikiProjects this year as inactive and others as semi. I actually just marked WikiProject Cryptocurrency to semi because there are only two members who are still active editors. Jerm (talk) 23:37, 19 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Cryptocurrency is the "active" one. This task force is pretty much inactive so I marked it as Category:Inactive task forces. Coin (talk) 22:08, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

I added the assessment table of the task force to the page of the wikiproject, but I'm not sure if the wikiproject has the same amount of articles assessed according to the task force assessment table. Jerm (talk) 03:58, 21 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

200 euro note[edit]

Hi. I noticed that 200 euro note (a Good Article) has an empty subsection (this one). This seems like something that can be easily fixed by someone with the right expertise, which is why I'm bringing it to your attention. Thanks! Lennart97 (talk) 15:17, 6 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1 yen note[edit]

I need someone to copyedit this article for me. It took a few days but I feel enough information has been poured into the article to bump it up to a "B" rating. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:39, 30 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Talk:Coins_of_the_United_States_dollar[edit]

Some bot keeps trashing the talk page of Talk:Coins_of_the_United_States_dollar can someone look into it? There is a new coin/bullion Morgan/Peace dollar coming out this year, and it may need to be added, but the bot keeps deleting the section to talk about how to add it to the page. shadzar-talk 12:46, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Usage of coin colour templates[edit]

Hello numisticians, I thought I'd drop this thought I had here for some initial feedback, before I go on and propose something more formal, as I know this is a passionately watched category of articles. The three templates used to add colour to tables of coinage (Template:Coin-copper-color, Template:Coin-yellow-color, and Template:Coin-silver-color) are all applied as per the numistics MOS, with entire rows being coloured (example taken from MOS):

Prewar series - Regular issues (link to official page about this series if exists)
Image Value Technical parameters Description Date of
Obverse Reverse Diameter Thickness Mass Composition Edge Obverse Reverse first minting issue withdrawal
HUPf 1 1938 obverse.jpg HUPf 1 1938 reverse.jpg 1 f 17.0 mm 1.0 mm 1.66 g Bronze
95% copper
4% tin
1% zinc
Smooth "MAGYAR KIRÁLYSÁG", Holy Crown of Hungary, year of minting Indication of value, mintmark 1926 27 December 1926 31 December 1945

Couldn't we make it so that only the cells in the 'composition' column get the colour instead? This has two benefits, as I see it:

  • The reader may be confused about why a row is seemingly arbitrarily coloured, but if it's just one cell, the contents of that single cell should make it very clear what the colour refers to
  • I suspect minimising the use of coloured backgrounds will improve accessibility

Here's what it could look like:

Prewar series - Regular issues (link to official page about this series if exists)
Image Value Technical parameters Description Date of
Obverse Reverse Diameter Thickness Mass Composition Edge Obverse Reverse first minting issue withdrawal
HUPf 1 1938 obverse.jpg HUPf 1 1938 reverse.jpg 1 f 17.0 mm 1.0 mm 1.66 g Bronze
95% copper
4% tin
1% zinc
Smooth "MAGYAR KIRÁLYSÁG", Holy Crown of Hungary, year of minting Indication of value, mintmark 1926 27 December 1926 31 December 1945

I've made the above update 'manually', but I'd imagine the templates can be updated if there's consensus that this is a good idea. Any thoughts? EditorInTheRye (talk) 09:24, 6 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

EditorInTheRye You make some valid points, but one problem I see with your proposal is that it would be impossible to color rows for bi-metallic coins, such as the Canadian $2 coin. - ZLEA T\C 09:30, 6 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
ZLEA That's a good point, I hadn't thought of that, actually. It's doable, but I'll be the first to admit that editing this table (taken from the article you linked) was rather painful (but then again others may be more at ease with wikitable markup than I am)...

Help[edit]

Hello there, This side Zuhair, an Indian coin collector. I am willing to join the project, kindly guide me how to get started. Numis Zuhair (talk) 12:52, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are very welcome. It would be helpful if you could improve or start articles on Indian numismatics. Remember per WP:V, adding proper sources for your information is essential.--Wehwalt (talk) 13:30, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wehwalt, Thanks for the suggestion to our new volunteer Zuhair. He is passionate to contribute with his primary interest being DCW and numismatics. I have started to guide him through my adoption school and request you too to leave helpful notes for him timey. We all learn this way. ─ The Aafī (talk) 19:43, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Medallistics[edit]

Hello, I'm reviewing Draft:Medallistics at AfC, and was wondering if someone here could provide an expert opinion on this. There is some evidence, but not much, of the use of this term; whether it warrants its own article, I don't know. Thoughts? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 07:50, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not convinced that this is a real term. I ran it through the archives of The Numismatist going back to the 1890s and the term's never been used. And I've never encountered it. I also checked the British Numismatic Society, the American Numismatic Society, and the Newman Numismatic Portal. The last one pulled up one source, here. It may be a translation from Spanish. That's all I got. Wehwalt (talk) 21:47, 5 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks @Wehwalt, that my first instinct also, but I figured 'what do I know?', so thought I'd best ask those in the know. The few sources I found, too, were either Spanish or Portuguese, so it could be a translation, as you say. Cheers, -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 16:40, 7 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Double florin[edit]

The article Double florin is a recently promoted FA. There is rather long discussion at talk:Double florin on what is appropriate to include in the infobox, with just three editors participating. Given the FA status of the article, more eyes would be wise, please. John Maynard Friedman (talk) 20:08, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
