In 1990, the University of Tübingen set up a research centre dedicated to Islamic Numismatics; the associated coin collection is today one of the three largest and most important collections in the world.
The FINT has a very good specialized reference and research library. Courses on Islamic Numismatics are regularly included in the seminars offered by the Department of Oriental and Islamic Studies.
