Josephus van der Vin, born in The Hague, the Netherlands, in 1945. Ph.D. from Leiden University. Associate Director at the Royal Coin Collection, The Hague.
Fellow (1 September 1985 – 31 July 1986)
During my stay at NIAS, I concentrated my research on two topics: 1) to create documentation, as complete as possible, about Roman coin hoards and stray finds in The Netherlands; and 2) to study modern numismatic literature in order to learn how colleagues in England and Germany deal with coins in a modern scientific way.
