The XVth International Numismatic Congress gathers numismatists – scholars, students, museum curators, collectors, and dealers, anybody interested in coins – and presents a unique opportunity to emphasize the importance of the study of coins as primary historical sources, as art works and as collectibles. The purpose of this Round Table is to reflect of the state and role of our discipline in the 21st century and to discuss the many possibilities it opens and the kind of real jobs it can offer to the young generation. We have invited young enthusiastic colleagues from the main branches of our field who have been successful in finding a position through their pursuit of numismatics to talk about their experience.
