By Jeremy Cheek The Royal Collection is famous as one of the finest art collections in the world, but little is known about its coins, medals and banknotes, which include many extremely rare pieces. This book, published by Spink in association with the Royal Collection Trust, and with a foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales, describes and illustrates the most important items in the Collection, giving their historical background, how they came to be in the Collection, and their importance. Items that have been received as gifts from visiting Heads of State; coin finds on Duchy of Lancaster land (eg the Cuerdale Hoard of 1840) help form the Collection, as do coins presented by the Royal Mint –such as sets of pattern coins of Edward VIII, and gold coins for the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II not issued to the public. Most of the items have never been exhibited before, and several are supported by descriptions and images of other relevant important objects from the Royal Collection.
