Coin Curiosity

Exploring Old and New Coins of the British Commonwealth

I am currently writing a book about varieties of various coins from various Commonwealth countries: it's a fairly long-term project and still quite a way off, so instead of waiting years for its eventual publication I'm posting bits and pieces of interesting things that I come across as I research and write (even things that won't appear in the final product).

Use any information that you see on this site at your own risk - accuracy is the intention but it comes with no guarantees.
