Greek Coins and Their Values, Volume I: Europe by David R. Sear

This catalogue sets out to achieve what has not been attempted before, a listing of every main type of ancient Greek coinage. The average collector should be able to locate in this catalogue all the types likely to be encountered, in one denomination or another; the historical notes provide valuable background information. Complementing this comprehensive listing of Greek coins is a selection of contemporary Celtic coins, the designs of which are derived largely from Greek types. This first volume covers the Greek coins of Europe arranged in geographical order from Spain in the West to the Peloponnese and Crete.
BK65548. Greek Coins and Their Values. Volume I: Europe by David R. Sear, London 1978, reprinted 2000, 318 pages, 4 tables of ancient alphabets, 11 maps, 3,395 coins listed, with 1,500 coin illustrations, valuations, hardback, special price!; $58.00 (€49.30)
 


Greek Imperial Coins and Their Values

GREEK IMPERIAL COINS AND THEIR VALUES by David R. Sear.

This catalogue is unique in providing the collector with the only comprehensive and authoritative guide devoted specifically to the local coinages of the Roman Empire, undoubtedly the most neglected series in the whole of ancient classical numismatics. Greek Imperial coins span more than three centuries from Augustus to Diocletian, and were issued at over six hundred mints from Spain in the west to Mesopotamia in the east. The catalogue is arranged in three sections; first, the coins bearing the heads of emperors and empresses are catalogued in their chronological sequence, reign by reign. This arrangement aids the collector in identification and emphasizes the true importance of the local series as a complement to the empire-wide Roman state coinage. Within each reign the issues are placed in their traditional geographical sequence, as are the quasi-autonomous coins (those without imperial names and portraits) which are listed separately in section two. The third section of the catalogue lists contemporary coinages - the products of independent and semi-independent states belonging to the same era as Greek Imperial issues - and, in many instances, completes the listing begun in the two volumes of Greek Coins and their Values. In addition to cataloguing and valuing over 6,000 coins, full information is provided on all aspects of the subjects, types and inscriptions, magistrates' titles, city epithets, dates and eras, denominations and marks of value and a full alphabetical listing of all the mints (with ethnics) engaged in the production of Greek Imperial coin.
BKBSGIC. Greek Imperial Coins and Their Values by David R. Sear, The Local Coinage of the Roman Empire, London 1982, Reprinted 1997, xxxvi, 636 pages, illustrated throughout with over 1,750 photographs, 10 maps, valuations, hardback with dust-cover, special price!; $58.00 (€49.30)
 


Dated Coins of Antiquity

Click for a larger photo
Dated Coins of Antiquity is a near complete catalog of dated coins struck before the lifetime of Jesus Christ. Where a coin series such as the shekel of Tyre crosses the millennium divide, the catalog continues to its last dated coin in the common era. The catalog describes more than 900 different type coins struck in gold, silver and bronze, exceeding 6,000 different dated coins, dozens of which are cited in no other catalog. It corrects the misreading of dates in earlier references and updates the dating of coins according to current research.
BK00029. Dated Coins of Antiquity: A comprehensive catalogue of the coins and how their numbers came about by Edward E. Cohen, 2011, hardbound, 656 pages, including appendices, drawings, maps, charts, and other illustrations; over 981 cataloged coins illustrated and more than 6,000 individually dated coins listed; $150.00 (€127.50)
