Wildwinds goes from strength to strength! We have experienced very strong continued growth in site traffic since the re-launch in spring 2009.
Since May 2009, the number of site visits increased to an average of over 25,000 hits per day in February 2016.
In addition, the number of coins on wildwinds has risen from 54,900 (July 2009) to over 76,000 in December 2020.
In addition, thousands of corrections have been made to coin attributions and references since 2009, making Wildwinds now one of the most reliable reference sources on the internet.
The WildWinds website has been created as a reference and attribution resource in the field of ancient numismatics.
None of the coins in the database are for sale on this site. Advertising Links from commercial sites will be clearly marked, and may take you to other, separate, websites where items may be purchased.
No part of this website - including images, outlay, configuration, descriptions, indices, translations or pdfs may be copied in any form without permission (see below for permissions information).

For requests to use an image please contact Dane and PROVIDE THE FULL URL OF THE IMAGE IN QUESTION The url is the address (http://www.wildwinds.com........jpg) of the image (Right click the image and copy location), and information about how the image will be used.

In view of the number of fakes now being struck in Bulgaria and sold in the west, it is very difficult to tell from photographs whether a coin is genuine or fake. Please do not send images of coins asking whether they are genuine, as I am unable to help. I suggest checking the fakes galleries on forgerynetwork and forumancientcoins or joining the fine community at forumancientcoins.com and asking there.
