ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on ancient coin collecting and trafficking controversy in some parts of the world. He notes that for many archaeologists, politicians, and museum administrators, collecting ancient coins will result to a loss of the history of one's nation and its heritage. Some countries such as Italy, Turkey and Israel are imposing strict orders against coin trafficking. The author suggests to protect the archaeological sites from any kind of looters.
