This is an outdated 8-bit font. It is not a Unicode font and is unsuitable for use on Internet web pages. It may be useful for internal documents or those to be exchanged with others who own the same font.
Download the fonts
I have obtained permission for free distribution of the formerly commercial fonts CoinGreek I and CoinGreek II. Originally released in 1998, these 8-bit fonts for the Macintosh and Windows were sold principally through advertisements in The Celator magazine.
The two fonts cover the Greek characters of the Byzantine period. They were conceived and promoted by coin dealer Dan Clark. The design and production of the fonts was done by Millerburg & Associates who have generously released them for free public distribution.

I am re-releasing them in their original form.
Unicode is the future of fonts and incorporation of characters from the CoinGreek fonts into a Unicode version of Numismatica is planned. Unfortunately, the Unicode version will not be backward compatible with the original CoinGreek I and II fonts.
I am particularly interested in information from current users on any problems experienced with the fonts. Please contact Chris Hopkins with any comments.
