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 medals and proofs at the bottom of the page.
The first auctions of the year have started with the Heritage Sale at NYINC the first weekend of the year. Prices seemed very low, and some of the reserves very high in many of the sales last week, although in the non-floor sale at Heritage today the prices seemed much higher as a percentage of the estimates. Still it was an excellent week for me, well for the collection anyway, I added a number of George III proofs, as well as an 1825 Geo. IV proof shilling and another Vicky proof halfpenny.
