The Oriental Numismatic Society is a world-wide network of those interested in Oriental coins and money (collectors, scholars, and enthusiasts).

The Society publishes the Journal of the Oriental Numismatic Society (formerly ONS Newsletter), an international journal that is released quarterly to our members worldwide.

The different regional sections of the Society hold meetings around the world at which members can meet and hear talks by collectors, scholars and enthusiasts working on a variety of numismatic topics.
