Numista: Object Detection & Visual Search of Coins

Numista, a numismatic & coin collecting platform listing hundreds of thousands of coins and banknotes, uses Ximilar’s visual artificial intelligence on their images.

When a visitor uploads an image with coins, they are detected one by one. Visual search then uses them as image queries and recommends identical or similar items from the database, together with their metadata.
