space of little more than a hundred years, from the Roman
conquest of Gaul in the mid first century BC to the defeat
of Boudicca in AD61, Britain saw the final and arguably the
most impressive phase in the development of Celtic coinage.
The coins are not only beautiful and attractive in their own
right, but also extraordinarily useful evidence in our attempts
to understand Celtic society at this period. This book provides
a general introduction to Celtic coinage in Britain. It analyses
how and why the coins were made, describing the most significant
types and many of the more obscure varieties, and explaining
how the coins and the images they carry can reveal information
on the political, economic and social life of the Celts. The
book is fully illustrated with some of the best examples of
Celtic coinage and provides details of museums where coins
can be seen, as well as suggestions for more detailed reading.
one needs coins, but if you decide to collect them, you certainly
need this book. Coin collecting can sometimes be a confusing
maze of choices sprinkled with little traps along the way.

numismatics a lot easier by picking the brain of an expert
collector and learning from the mistakes of others.

like its predecessors, a complete list of British non gold
coins (1797 - 2005) with their varieties listed, values in
up to five states of preservation and yearly mintage numbers.
For the first time, this edition also includes a wealth of
information about the designers of each coin, as well as extra
information on the sizes and weights of the coins. The whole
book has also been given a stiffer cover with better quality
pages and print.

uncleaned lots from ebay and other websites, and I'm thrilled
to say that they are now all atributed with the reference
numbers from this book, and I also have some idea of value.
I had no idea who many of the Emperors were at first, and
as yet I haven't found one that this book doesn't cover.The
line drawings are especially useful, as you can clearly read
the letters and compare them to the coin you are trying to
attribute. The lowest price Roman Coin Book that I know of,
and worth every penny. A fully updated Price guide of over
630 base metal Roman coins dated 241 BC - 498 AD, with their
market values, notes on changes in the coinage over the years
and over 640 drawings to aid identification.
the first time, the most commonly encountered silver Roman
coins can be inexpensively identified and some idea of value
can be gained. Whether you are setting out to form a collection
of every emperor or are already an experienced Roman Coin
collector, you will not be able to put this book down! The
line drawings of most obverse types mean that the legend is
clear and readable in the book, and it makes a great aid to
identification, as does the alphabetical list of emperors/empresses
in the back of the book. This book includes an identification
guide for republican coins, instructions on cleaning Roman
silver coins and a list of Roman mint town mintmarks. It also
includes an alphabetical list of Emperors/Caesars/Empresses
and information of Roman coin grading. The book is ordered
chronologically, and with the introduction of different coin
types clearly mentioned, together with some historical notes,
it also gives an easy to follow explanation of the Roman base
metal coinage and how it changed over 750 years.
