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 CICF auctions started for world coins today, very mixed results I thought. Some results were outstanding, Danish for example, and some were pretty low. I picked up three new pieces including a proof 1812 9d pattern, and two Victoria proof bronzes for what I thought were very reasonable prices, well under estimate on all of them.
It's been pretty slow buying for me, but I have just updated the Geo. IV page with an 1827 shilling purchased at the Goldberg auction.
