Modesti 81: "La rivista, riccamente illustrata, comprende una serie di articoli sulle medaglie, soprattutto rinascimentali. Tra I collaboratori, si segnalano i maggiori numismatici: Hill, Habich, Forrer ecc. che la resero, a quel tempo, la più prestigiosa rivista tedesca--e forse europea!--di medaglistica. È sicuramente opera indispensabile, proprio per la ricchezza e la varietà dei temi e l'autorevolezza degli autore."
