The Handbook of Roman Imperial Coins

Click for a larger photo
First published in 1991, Van Meter's Handbook of Roman Imperial Coins (HRIC) quickly became a cult classic among collectors. In 1999, used copies were trading in excess of $100 on eBay. This was no surprise, really..the book remains the most comprehensive, and yet easy-to-use one-volume reference on Roman Imperial Coins! With over 330 large-format pages, and 1000 illustrations, the HRIC provides the collector with both an expansive overview of the history of the coinage, and a particularly thorough catalogue of the coin types. Numerous charts, tables, and a lexicon make identifying, attributing and understanding your coins a pleasure. This book is quite simply the best value in reference literature on Roman Imperial coins!

Roman Coins and Their Values, Volume I

Click for a larger photo
ROMAN COINS AND Their VALUES, Volume One, The Republic and the Twelve Caesars 280 BC - AD 96 by David Sear

The original edition of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values was published by Seaby thirty-six years ago and has been through four revisions (1970, 1974, 1981 and 1988). However, the publication of the Millennium Edition of this popular work makes a radical departure from previous editions. The catalogue entries have been expanded to include a virtually complete listing of the entire Roman Republican series, as well as more comprehensive coverage of the much larger and more complex Imperial series. Greater emphasis is now placed on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each type and extensive coverage is given to the important series of billon and bronze coins struck at Alexandria over a period of more than 300 years. The valuations have been exhaustively researched from recent auction records and fixed price catalogues and many professional numismatists have contributed their valuable opinions on specific series. Prices (both in British pounds and US dollars) are now expressed in either two or three grades of preservation for each entry, usually VF and EF for precious metal issues, and F, VF and EF for Imperial Bronzes. Perhaps most importantly for the collector, the number of photographic illustrations in the text has been increased, and their quality improved. Expansion on this scale has inevitably led to a need to divide the work into more than one volume, but collectors and dealers will now find it of much greater value both as a source of information and as a comprehensive work of reference for this vast and complex series.
BKBSME1. Roman Coins and Their Values, Volume I by David R. Sear, Millennium Edition, 532 pages, more than 1,200 illustrations, valuations in £ and US$, hardback, special price!; SOLD Out of Stock!


Roman Coins and Their Values, Volume II

ROMAN COINS AND Their VALUES, Volume Two, The Accession of Nerva to the Overthrow of the Severan Dynasty AD 96 - AD 235 by David Sear

Volume II extends coverage of the Imperial series from Nerva, the thirteenth Caesar and first of the Adoptive emperors, down to the overthrow of the Severan dynasty in 235. It encompasses what may justifiably be termed the golden age of the Roman imperial coinage. The full development of the Augustan system of coin denomination and perfection of the method by which government propaganda was communicated to the citizenry through the medium of coinage both reached their peak during these fourteen decades. The preceding coinages of the Julio-Claudian and Flavians periods had seen much experimentation with the currency system and tentative early steps in the development of the propaganda potential of the reverse types. The coinages of the Adoptive emperors and those of the Antonine and Severan dynasties saw the ultimate fulfillment of this process resulting in a coinage of unprecedented volume and complexity. The number of types included in the listings shows a dramatic increase and the proportion of illustrated coins is much greater than before. Throughout the catalogue the current market valuations have been expressed in two currencies (pound sterling and US dollars) and in at least two grades of preservation - usually VF and EF for precious metal coins, and F and VF for the billon and bronze issues of Roman Egypt. For regular aes denominations (sestertii, dupondi, asses, etc.) valuations in three grades (F, VF and EF) have normally been provided. Another feature not present in earlier editions is the inclusion of the mint and precise date of each type. The biographical sketches at the commencement of each reign and under certain subsidiary headings have been revised.
