Welcome to my collection of British coins. My primary interest started with copper and bronze coins, primarily of George III. Over the years I've expanded the collection to include other
denominations and rulers. References I give are related to the following publications:
P-xxxx - English Copper, Tin and Bronze Coins by C. Wilson Peck
ESC-xxxx - English Silver Coinage by Seaby and Raynor
For each section I have selected just one or two coins to represent the various types available, where I illustrate more than one of a type it is generally to show a rare or unusual variety. Most
pages will list copper and bronze, then silver, then proofs with medals at the bottom of the page.
Note that you can click on the images and they will open in a slightly larger format.
10 March 2016 - I've done a pretty major update to the House of Windsor page and added several different types not previously shown.
My other coin collections of German States to 1871, and World and Ancient Coins can be viewed at The German States .

I currently use a desktop HP with a dual core AMD processor, 4 Gb of ram, Lightscribe DVD burner and a HP Photosmart 5525 scanner/printer/copier. Photo equipment is a Sony 16.2 Megapixel NEX C3 with their 30mm Macro lens, and a simple 2 light setup using daylight balanced CFL's. I use Picture Window Pro
from Digital Light and Color for imaging, yes it's a lot different than Photoshop, it's made for photographers rather than graphics artists. It's also a lot less expensive.
