Coins, Medals & Medallic Art
A warm welcome to this website, offering a selection of commemorative medals and coins.
What began in the mid-1960's as a schoolboy interest in coins eventually led to the discovery of historical medals. Fascination in the subject encouraged the compilation of British Commemorative Medals and their Values, which was published in 1987. A revised edition came out in 2010 with updated values and colour images.*
The internet and digital technology have done much to enhance the appreciation of coins and medals. As well as enlivening their visual appeal, an increasing flow of information has provided further opportunity for research and discovery.
Enjoy the website and happy collecting!
