In 2000, I unsuccessfully attempted to locate a font containing the archaic, classical and Hellenistic Greek letterforms necessary to electronically describe legends on ancient coins. In the absence of a readily available font for Greek legends on ancient coins, I proposed a collaborative effort to create such a font for unrestricted free distribution over the Internet.

The project has now grown to include other numismatic fonts, and testing of cross-platform fonts of both the 8-bit and Unicode types.

In researching fonts for Parthian in Aramaic script, I found that Unicode does not yet contain Aramaic, and I have initiated efforts to formally propose an Aramaic script encoding to the Unicode technical committee.

I have obtained permission to freely distribute the formerly commercial fonts CoinGreek I and CoinGreek II.
