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.
Spring 2021: The FINT library is currently being retro-cataloged so that it will be possible to search for this inventory in the University Library's Catalog plus in the future.
Courses on Islamic Numismatics are regularly included in the seminars offered by the Department of Oriental and Islamic Studies and every year in May, FINT organizes an international conference on Islamic coinage on the occasion of the meeting of the Oriental Numismatic Society (2021 via Zoom with over 50 participants and 12 lectures) - the next one from May 7th to 8th, 2022 (the program will appear under "News").
