Abstract: 
The contribution aims at a double goal. On the one hand, it reevaluates the significance of plates of islamic coins published in 1752. And on the other hand,
it discusses the origins of islamic Numismatics. The author argues that Islamic
Numismatics, the roots of which go back to the age of Enlightenment, was the
result of the efforts of both catholic and protestants scholars who preferred to
embrace Philosophy, rather than Theology, for carrying out their researches.
