A Historical Guide to English Milled Coinage

Details

Designed as a companion volume to the Spink Standard Catalogue of British Coins, the author fleshes out the historical background to English Milled Coinage, covering each reign in detail. It can be used alongside the SCBC to give the reader a fuller picture of the historical influences at work on milled coinage, or as an independent history of milled coinage by ruler. Designed to be used alongside the Spink Standard Catalogue of British Coins, this book provides a wealth of details for all collectors of the milled coinage. As the author describes this narrative, 'If we appreciate the impact and significance of coins' images and legends, and if we learn the stories of the designers and minters who contributed to each coin's conception, engraving and creation, we may better understand why these forms of money have endured as symbols of their ages.' Each reign is covered in detail, providing readers with the first modern history devoted entirely to the milled coinage of England presented in chronological order.
