Coins, Medals & Medallic Art

What began as a schoolboy hobby in the mid-1960s eventually became a full time interest. In those far-off days there was relatively little interest in commemorative medals, but an increasing number of publications and the internet have helped to bring the subject-matter and its visual appeal to the attention of a wider public.
The absence of a general guide to prices led to the compilation of British Commemorative Medals and their Values, which was first published in 1987. An updated edition came out in 2010 with revised values and the addition of colour illustrations.
Three further titles have also been written: 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).
Working alongside my partner Missi, our membership includes the British Numismatic Trade Association and the International Association of Professional Numismatists.
The internet and digital technology have done much to enhance the appreciation of coins and medals as pieces of history, while also bringing to life the artist's work in all its splendour.
Such is the current flow of information, and the availability of source material, that there has never been a more interesting time to collect, nor a greater opportunity for discovery.
