100 Greatest Ancient Coins

The coins covered range from the first typeless electrum struck in Asia Minor in the 7th Century B.C. to the desparate silver issues of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI, in 1453. Coins of major rarity are discussed as well as common issues that had a strong social, political or economic impact on their time. This is one of the few books that covers the entire time frame of ancient numismatics. While it is a useful book for beginners, it is also worthwhile for experienced numismatists.
