Milestone Celebration!


Recommended Posts

Fellow Numisheads,

After a grueling last 4 days of work, it was an incalculable joy to log in today and see we have officially hit 500 members!!! 


We've been getting closer and closer these last few days as I'm sure many of you noticed, and I was cautiously optimistic (but to be honest also a little nervous) that we'd get there before our 1 Year Anniversary as a forum (June 1) and lo and behold, we did!!! And not only that, but with 13 days to spare!!


If you had asked me this time last year if I had ever thought that our little forum would become, in such a short amount of time, the most active forum site for ancient coins on the web, I'd have said you must be dreaming! But we did it! Thank you all so much for making this forum what it is. It is an absolute joy to log on here every day and see how active it is, how friendly everyone is, and of course, how beautiful all the coins are. And thank you as well to all our supporters, patrons, and benefactors. It's because of y'all that I can keep the lights on here, and ensure that this forum will never be covered in terrible advertisements and pop ups 😁 Looking forward to celebrating the 1 Year milestone here soon!! 🤩


In honor of this milestone, feel free to post any coin that makes you happy!!!

Thunder and lightning in place of fireworks, but the implication of celebration is the same. The most pleasurable, entertaining and instructional site you could ever wish to be a part of. I will be signing up as a supporter in due course.

In classical Latin, hilaritas connotes a feeling of cheerfulness, gayety, joyousness, merriment, or hilarity ...

In other words, hilaritas conveys a sense of happiness along with a sense of cheerfulness or merriment. THIS is hilaritas:
