Coins, Medals & Medallic Art

A warm welcome to this website, offering a selection of commemorative medals and coins.


What began as a schoolboy interest in the mid-1960s with the collecting of coins eventually brought me to historical medals. This was a fascinating, yet relatively unexplored area, and it encouraged the compilation of a catalogue on the subject. The result was British Commemorative Medals and their Values, which was published in 1987. A revised edition came out in 2010 with updated values and the addition of 2000 colour images. Produced in a limited and individually-numbered run, copies are still available for purchase.


The internet and digital technology have done much to enhance the  appreciation of coins and medals, enlivening original pieces of history in all their splendour. As well as highlighting the fascination of the subject and  broadening interest, the increasing flow of information has also created the opportunity for discovery.


Enjoy the website, and happy collecting!
