11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Aug. 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a great little book for the person who is starting out on the hobby of coin collecting, whether they are going to solely collect Roman coins or a more general collection. The book feastures virtually all of the coins that were in common use in Roman Britain and life size reproductions of the coins are shown.

There are no present day value in the book, but I find that these are practically useless anyway as within 12 months the prices have changed and anyway the book price can be very far away from what you actual get if you sold them on the open market.

it is not the best or the most comprehensive book available on Roman coins, but for those who are just starting in the hobby, or just want to purchase one or two coins (there are many available on the internet now) for their historical interest, the book is an invaluable aid to identification.

Print a bit small for older eyes. I bought this for an eighty eight year old gentleman who loves metal detecting in the ancient fields of Pembrokeshire. Unfortunately, although he has matched a couple of coins I think the writing and pictures are too small.

I bought this for my uncle who has done some archeological digs. He reads a lot informative books and very difficult to find books that have enough factual information. He said the book was suitable.

Good intro to Roman coinage which gives some detail that you can use to begin to ID coins that are found.
