Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the assessment of the problems and the usual methods of medieval numismatics (analysis of coin hoards, analysis of coin dies, style criticism and monetary geography). Furthermore, short attention is dedicated to the position within the medieval numismatics, especially in relation to other auxiliary historical sciences. The relationship between numismatics and economic history as a possible starting point for further interdisciplinary study is examined in the final part of the paper.
