Tom May Numismatic Articles

Tom May (1931 – 2011)

It’s amazing what a Google Search can reveal. While looking for items relating to the Max Stern Trophy I came across this amazing Google Site that has collected all of the numismatic works of the late Tom May all in one place. Tom was an active member of both the NAV and the Melbourne Numismatic Society.  Both organisations continue to issue awards named in his honour.

The site includes not only contains his articles in the Australian Numismatist (some of which are not currently in our archives), but also his article on Sydney’s Tea Store Tokens in the Journal of the Numismatic Association of Australia (JNAA) and his extensive contributions to the Australasian Coin & Banknote Magazine.

It apprears the site was set up in 2012 by Tom’s son Adam and it was wonderful to come across it and be able to share it with fellow members who can continue to benefit from Tom’s outstanding numismatic knowledge years after his death. The site can be accessed by selecting the photo in this post.
