I came across this quite by chance., a division of the British Library currently lists over 30,000 thesis from the past 40+ years, many of which are available for immediate free download.
You need to sign up for the service but it is free and immediate.
A simple search using the word "coinage" finds the following useful theses which are available free of charge.

If you search with terms such as Coins Coinage Numismatics etc, only the titles with the pdf logo to the right of the title are available for download. Others, showing an open padlock may be available from the issuing institution.

Andrew McCabe:
It does sound extremely useful. Perhaps you could search on "Coins" and on Numismatics" to see if you come up with additional titles?

Hi Andrew
I am in the middle of doing some urgent ID work so don't have the time for the next couple of days but if anyone else has the time, perhaps they could go to the ethos website, click on "simple search" and see what other goodies they can find. It's easy to see the downloadable files because these have a "View Thesis" and a "download pdf" logo on the right.

areich: (without the www). My browser at least shows me a page not found error otherwise.


This has to be probably one of the best links reported - I now have a copy of Roger Bland's dissertation - a gold mine to the Gordian collector!!!
