Coins, Medals & Medallic Art

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


The interest in numismatics began in the mid-1960s, with the collecting of coins a  schoolboy hobby. This was to extend further into the relatively unexplored area of historical medals, and by 1987 a catalogue on the subject had been compiled and published. The second edition of British Commemorative Medals and their Values was published in 2010, with revised values and the addition of colour images.


In more recent years, internet and digital technology have done much to enhance the appreciation of coins and medals, preserving and bringing to life original, quirky and much-enlivened pieces of history.


As well as presenting these objects in all their fascination and splendour, the increasing flow of information arising from this technology has broadened the opportunity for knowledge and discovery.


Enjoy the website, and happy collecting!
