Michel Prieur 1955 – 2014

It is with great sadness that I have just learned of the recent, and untimely passing of the eminent French numismatist, Michel Prieur, the founder and president of He was one of the first coin dealers to keep a web-archive of his stock and auction catalogues and he had even offered, at his own expense, to make the French national collection of coins available on the Internet for anyone to see and study (his offer was declined).

His passing is a great loss, not only for his family, friends, and the subject of numismatics, but also for France. has published this tribute: Michel Prieur nous a quittés
