This article, which appeared in the 2013 Edition of the Australian Numismatist, give an overview of the Numismatic Association of Victoria’s publications since its inception in 1946 through to 2013. In 2013 the Australian Numismatist ceased to be an annual publication and became a quarterly publication, until it was superseded by the Victorian Numismatic Journal in 2016.
The Victorian Numismatic Journal
The Victorian Numismatic Journal (VNJ) is published quarterly and can be viewed online by members of the NAV. It is a joint publication between the NAV, the Geelong Numismatic Society, the Melbourne Numismatic Society, and the Morwell Numismatic Society. The VNJ was first issued in 2016 and is distributed to all members of the participating societies, as well as a single copy supplied to other Australasian numismatic organisations and our sponsors.
The Australian Numismatist

It was published monthly until 1974, then bimonthly from 1975 to 1981, annually from 1982 to 2013, and quarterly in 2014 and 2015. Since 2016, it has been superseded by The Victorian Numismatic Journal (see above).
