The Story of the Coins and Tokens of the British World.
The Story of the Coins and Tokens of the British World. This full colour profusely illustrated 380-page book tells the story of the coins and tokens used by the British to trade across the globe, from the very earliest trade in the 15th century through to the final days of the colonies. It examines the coins of The East India Company, the tokens of private individuals, the coins which are commonly referred to as “colonial coins” and the coins of the Commonwealth - stretching from the Americas to Asia and all points in between. The story of Britain’s trade is the story of its influence throughout the world and coins tell that story perfectly – Peter now tells their story in this wonderful new work, a must have for every numismatist.
