Welcome to the Numismatic Association of Australia
The Numismatic Association of Australia acts as a united voice for all the major State numismatic organisations in Australia and has close ties with the Royal Numismatic Society of New Zealand and those Australian public institutions with numismatic collections. The NAA publishes an annual journal of international standard that covers all forms of currency and medals, and holds a biennial conference. Membership is made up of collectors, dealers, academics and museum numismatists, and is open to individuals and institutions in Australia and overseas.
The NAA follows the policy of museums and other public institutions in Australia, and does not value coins, medals or banknotes, nor does it give any opinion as to whether they are genuine.
