The blurb says: 'British Silver Coins since 1816 is the definitive catalogue tabulating every silver coin struck by the Royal Mints of Tower Hill and present-day Llantrisant.
An historical monograph details the origination of this remarkable series often revealing little-known insights. Advice is also offered regarding care and maintenance of a collection.
Nearly 2500 catalogued pieces - many never previously published - are accompanied by almost 600 illustrations depicting all known varieties and
with a unique 'mint state' valuation for every coin.'
The author, who collected this series wrote this book to reveal to modern collectors the many varieties of modern coins that were ignored by ESC which did tend to concentrate on older issues. He also did his own typesetting and photography.
