Numismatists Live Longer!
Numismatics is a sensible and healthy interest! There can, of course, be no doubt about this sentiment. Nevertheless, it may surprise some that numismatists generally have a significantly higher life expectancy than the average person.
This is the conclusion of a study done by the diligent Belgian numismatist François de Callataÿ. The study was published in Compte rendu 64/2017, and based on the data of 1,183 famous numismatists (of which only 45 were women). The study concluded that the famous numismatists generally lived six years longer than other people, e.g. historians and other academics – and of course also significantly longer than the “common man”.
With this positive information, we turn our attention to all the upcoming activities here at Bruun Rasmussen.
