Photographic services

Throughout 2009, the Department of Coins and Medals will publish 500,000 object records on the Museum's Collection Database online, many of which contain images. Most of these images will be available free of charge for non-commercial purposes.

The records will be published in stages. While this is ongoing, high resolution digital images of the objects in the collection are available for purchase via www.bmimages.com.

If you cannot find the image you require on the website, please contact the department at cmphoto@britishmuseum.org

Existing images can be delivered quickly, but if new photography is required, please allow at least 28 days for delivery from the date of receipt of payment.
