Coin Curiosity

Exploring Old and New Coins of the British Commonwealth

I am currently writing a series of books about varieties of various coins from various British Commonwealth countries: they're in various states of completion, so instead of waiting years for their eventual publication I'm posting bits and pieces of interesting things that I come across as I research and write.
