Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Notifed when new coins are released


Can you please let me know how I can be notified when the Central Bank decides to release new commemorative coins to the public? Is there a mailing list I need to be part of?

Thanks in advance!


You can either look in
or you can join the SLNS mailing list by sending E-mail to
which will have far more discussion posting than the new coin listings.

You should E-mail CBSL and ask them to create such an announcement list,
but they only post a notice on yhe day of release.

I do post all information I find out at home page of

Coin and Paper Money Collecting

I can only answer any question regarding Paper Money, coins and Tokens that circulated in Ceylon/Sri Lanka of any era which extends back to 300 BCE. I maintain website which may help you identify your coin. If Country is any other or unknown, coin should have been found in Sri Lanka. Please Do not ask questions about any coins or currency of other countries including USA. Thank You.


I maintain since 1998 the largest website on Ceylon/Sri Lankan coins and Tokens with over 600 pages.
