The name alphaNumis was first thought of as a company and brand name for our grading business. As the name suggests, the phrase "numis" is derived from the term "numismatics".
According to Wikipedia's definition:
"Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. While numismatists are often characterized as students or collectors of coins, the discipline also includes the broader study of money and other payment media used to resolve debts and the exchange of goods."
As for the "alpha" part of our name - it is the first Greek alphabet and written as "A" in uppercase and "α" in lowercase. In English, alpha is synonymous to "beginning" or "first", reflecting its Greek roots.
Combined, the words "alphaNumis" means the first in numismatics.
