The Metal in Britain’s Coins
Have you ever wondered where the metal in your finds actually comes from or how it was obtained. Graham Birch’s book The Metal in Britain’s Coins examines the provenance of the metals used in British coins and the messages they convey, from Celtic staters to 21st Century silver, and provides a fascinating insight into the stories behind our coinage over two millennia.
The Metal in Britain’s Coins can be purchased from Spink Books.
