Sylloge of Coins of the British Isles

Catalogue of British and Irish coins, from Ancient British times to the 17th century.

This is a major series of catalogues of British and Irish coins in public and significant private collections, describing and illustrating coins and tokens ranging from Ancient British issues to those of the 17th century. The greatest coverage has been of the Anglo-Saxon period. The collections recorded include those of national, university and provincial museums in Britain and Ireland and of museums in Scandinavia, Germany, Eastern Europe and the United States of America.

Extensive introductions discuss the coinages and the collections. The illustrations of the coins and their detailed descriptions appear on facing pages.

The Sylloge is a fundamental source of material for the study of coin issues and moneyers, designs and die-cutting styles, metrology, hoards and single-finds, and personal- and place-name forms. The volumes are of relevance not only to numismatists, but also to archaeologists and historians who increasingly have grown aware of their need to understand and use numismatic evidence.
