Ancient British Coins by Chris Rudd
A big new Celtic catalogue with 2000 twice-size coin photos


 

Never before have so many ancient British coins been so easy to identify, so easy to study, so easy to enjoy. ABC catalogues 999 iron age coins, including 418 new types not shown by Van Arsdell in 1989. ABC describes and dates them, gives up to six references for each, estimates their rarity and shows every coin twice actual size, so that its distinctive differences can be seen at a glance. ABC took ten years to produce, has 256 fact-packed pages and contains 4000 superb coin photos, plus 500 other illustrations, diagrams, tables and maps.

 

Over 80 per cent of the 45,000 coins recorded by the Celtic Coin Index have been found by metal detectorists since the early 1970s. As a result of their finds four new coin-issuing tribes and possibly ten new rulers, previously unknown or unrecognised, have been identified. Now, for the first time, the golden harvest from these forty years of fieldwork has been published, with other coins from other sources, in a single fully illustrated book. ABC catalogues 999 iron age coins, including 418 new types not shown by Van Arsdell in 1989. ABC describes and dates them, gives up to six references for each, estimates their rarity and shows every coin twice actual size, so that its distinctive differences can be seen at a glance. Never before have so many ancient British coins been so easy to identify, so easy to study, so easy to enjoy.
