Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, coins, and paper money used as a method of payment. Numismatists are individuals whose discipline is the study of money and other forms of debt payment and exchanges of goods.
Exonumia are numismatic items such as tokens or medals. Exonumia is referred to as a non-governmental payment issued as a “good for” exchange of merchandise or service or just for fun. Some examples include counter stamped coins, elongated coins, souvenir medallions, tags, wooden nickels and casino token. It is related to numismatics, other than legal tender. Many coin collectors are exonumists as well.
