Origin of numismatics

  • From French numismatique, from Late Latin numisma, numismatis (“coin"), variant of Latin nomisma, from Ancient Greek νόμισμα (nomisma, “current coin, custom"), from νομίζω (nomizō, “I hold or own as a custom, usage, I use customarily, practise, I am used to"), from νόμος (nomos, “usage, custom"), from νέμω (nemō, “I keep, hold, watch").
