Byzantine Coins and Their Values

Byzantine Coins and their Values by David R. Sear

The Byzantine Empire lasted for almost a thousand years after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West. The period covered by this catalogue is from the reign of Anastasius I (491-518) until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. When this catalogue was first published in 1974 it was hailed as containing more information in a concise form than any other single volume on the Byzantine series. This edition incorporates the research of the intervening years, new attributions and new coins that have been recognised. The later Palaeologan period has been completely revised by Simon Bendall and an Appendix has been added covering the gold forgeries of the 'Beirut' and allied schools that have caused collectors some concern. Over 2,500 coins in gold, silver and bronze are listed, valued and illustrated with more than 600 photographs, giving a virtual type catalogue of the Byzantine series. The Introduction discusses the types, mints, denominations, dates and inscriptions found on Byzantine coins and includes seven maps and a table of monograms. This is an invaluable guide to the whole of the Byzantine series and is already a standard reference work.

This book is not a replacement for Sear's book; it is a tool to help you find coins in that book faster, much faster!

The Billon Trachea of Michael VIII Palaeologos 1258-1282

Click for a larger photo
This short study of the billon trachea of Michael VIII, the authors state, does not pretend to be complete and there are few deductions of theories presented here, but perhaps it will lead to a further discoveries and research into this neglected but interesting period of the Byzantine coinage. This useful book provides the reader with a brief history surrounding this coinage, details on different types, mints and dating, as well as information on Imperial effigies and obverse types. Detailed line drawings are also given to aid identification.
