Roman Coins and Their Values, 4th Revised Edition

Click for a larger photo
ROMAN COINS AND Their VALUES, 1988 edition, by David Sear

The only one-volume priced guide to the coinage of Republican and Imperial Rome. The original edition of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values was published by Seaby thirty-six years ago and has been through three revisions (1970, 1974, and 1981). This edition is a reprint of the 1988 Seaby's version. It is an indispensable listing of all major types of gold, silver and bronze, issued over some seven hundred and fifty years by the greatest militaristic state the world has ever known. Over 4,300 coins are included with detailed description and valuations and all major and minor personalities are listed by means of their portrait coins. This fourth revised edition takes notice under the Republic of recent work in the field, especially that of Professor Michael Crawford. In the Imperial period, essential new references that have appeared since the previous edition are all incorporated, for example Dr. J. P. C. Kent's magisterial volume Roman Imperial Coinage VIII, and the late Dr. C. H. V. Sutherland's extensive revision of Roman Imperial Coinage I. The introductory material on denominations, reverse types, mints, mint marks and dating presents a useful background, as do the succinct biographical details that precede the listing of coins issued by emperors and members of the imperial family. Previous editions have been acknowledged by collectors, Roman historians and scholars alike as the most useful single volume reference work in the field. With 12 plates, over 900 photos in the text and a map.

Greek Coins and Their Values, Volume I: Europe by David R. Sear

This catalogue sets out to achieve what has not been attempted before, a listing of every main type of ancient Greek coinage. The average collector should be able to locate in this catalogue all the types likely to be encountered, in one denomination or another; the historical notes provide valuable background information. Complementing this comprehensive listing of Greek coins is a selection of contemporary Celtic coins, the designs of which are derived largely from Greek types. This first volume covers the Greek coins of Europe arranged in geographical order from Spain in the West to the Peloponnese and Crete.

Byzantine Coins and Their Values

Byzantine Coins and their Values by David R. Sear

The Byzantine Empire lasted for almost a thousand years after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West. The period covered by this catalogue is from the reign of Anastasius I (491-518) until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. When this catalogue was first published in 1974 it was hailed as containing more information in a concise form than any other single volume on the Byzantine series. This edition incorporates the research of the intervening years, new attributions and new coins that have been recognised. The later Palaeologan period has been completely revised by Simon Bendall and an Appendix has been added covering the gold forgeries of the 'Beirut' and allied schools that have caused collectors some concern. Over 2,500 coins in gold, silver and bronze are listed, valued and illustrated with more than 600 photographs, giving a virtual type catalogue of the Byzantine series. The Introduction discusses the types, mints, denominations, dates and inscriptions found on Byzantine coins and includes seven maps and a table of monograms. This is an invaluable guide to the whole of the Byzantine series and is already a standard reference work.

Greek Imperial Coins and Their Values

Click for a larger photo
GREEK IMPERIAL COINS AND THEIR VALUES by David R. Sear.

This catalogue is unique in providing the collector with the only comprehensive and authoritative guide devoted specifically to the local coinages of the Roman Empire, undoubtedly the most neglected series in the whole of ancient classical numismatics. Greek Imperial coins span more than three centuries from Augustus to Diocletian, and were issued at over six hundred mints from Spain in the west to Mesopotamia in the east. The catalogue is arranged in three sections; first, the coins bearing the heads of emperors and empresses are catalogued in their chronological sequence, reign by reign. This arrangement aids the collector in identification and emphasizes the true importance of the local series as a complement to the empire-wide Roman state coinage. Within each reign the issues are placed in their traditional geographical sequence, as are the quasi-autonomous coins (those without imperial names and portraits) which are listed separately in section two. The third section of the catalogue lists contemporary coinages - the products of independent and semi-independent states belonging to the same era as Greek Imperial issues - and, in many instances, completes the listing begun in the two volumes of Greek Coins and their Values. In addition to cataloguing and valuing over 6,000 coins, full information is provided on all aspects of the subjects, types and inscriptions, magistrates' titles, city epithets, dates and eras, denominations and marks of value and a full alphabetical listing of all the mints (with ethnics) engaged in the production of Greek Imperial coin.
BKBSGIC. Greek Imperial Coins and Their Values by David R. Sear, The Local Coinage of the Roman Empire, London 1982, Reprinted 1997, xxxvi, 636 pages, illustrated throughout with over 1,750 photographs, 10 maps, valuations, hardback with dust-cover, special price!; $58.00 (49.30)
