Coins, Medals & Medallic Art
A warm welcome to this website, offering a selection of coins and commemorative medals.
My own interest began as a schoolboy hobby in the mid-1960s, when there was relatively information about commemorative and historical medals. Since that time, a number of publications have brought their appeal to a new and wider audience, including my own catalogues on the subject.
British Commemorative Medals and their Values, was published in 1987; and an updated edition came out in 2010, with revised values and the addition of colour illustrations.
I have also written three other titles: An Introduction to Commemorative Medals (1989); Medallic Portraits of the Duke of Wellington;(1994); and The Pingo Family and Medal Making in Eighteenth-Century Britain (1998).
The internet and digital technology have helped to enhance the appreciation of coins and medals, instantly bringing to life these fascinating sources of history and the work of the artist in all its splendour.
With an increasing flow of information and further opportunity for discovery, there has never been a more interesting time to take an interest.
