The 2011 "Collectors' Coins Great Britain" (or "CCGB2011" for short) contains comprehensive listings of all British coins from approximately the last 200 years with their varieties listed, values in up to five states of preservation and yearly mintage numbers. It includes the usual wealth of information about the coin weights, sizes and designers. The publisher believes this to be the most detailed coverage of the subject matter available.
Christopher Henry Perkins was born and grew up in South East London. He has always had an interest in collectables (especially British coins) and has run a successful website as a professional coin dealer for over 10 years. He is a member of the British Numismatic Trade Association and has long been associated with BBC Three Counties radio as half of the Coins and Medals specialist team (with his father Steve, dealing with the medal enquiries)!
In late 2004 he took over the long established publishing house Rotographic Publications and since then has been involved as an author or editor on 12 new Rotograpic titles. He is the current author of the popular British Coin Price guide "Collectors' Coins GB" (in its 38th annual edition) and has published/written many other books on related subjects involving coins, banknotes, medals and history.
