What do Sir Isaac Newton, Winston Churchill, Henry VIII and Emperor Hadrian have in common?  They have all left a lasting mark on Britain’s coins.  Miniature monuments of the past, every coin has a story to tell, regardless of its value. Britain has been making money for over 2000 years.  From the ancient world of the Celts and Romans to the modern age, the coins we take for granted helped to forge a nation.

Who invented Britannia? What was a ‘Bob’? Why was Henry VIII known as ‘Old Coppernose’?  Presenting over 180 high-quality images, In the Money is an approachable and accessible guide for any coin collector, enthusiast or historian. Delve into the rich history of money and explore two millennia of the country’s most exquisite coins, and the intriguing personalities who helped to create them.

This approachable guide to the fascinating world of British coinage has been written by numismatist Dominic Chorney, a former employee The London Mint Office. With chapters including Celtic Britain, the Roman invasion, the Dark Ages, Wars of the Roses, the Tudors, Stuarts and Decimalisation, there is certain to be something to interest anyone with an interest in history.

 Numismatic books usually fall in to one of two categories – either they are general price guides or they are more specific, books that concentrate on one coin or maybe one type of coin/historical period.

 This new book In the Money by Dominic Chorney breaks that pattern and instead looks at a number of coins from across history; quite literally the “coins that shaped Britain”. Starting with the Celtic gold stater and on to the Roman Britannia, the hammered penny, the sovereign and the decimal pound coin, Dominic looks at how these coins came into being, the political, historical economic and social background to their institution and the influence they had on the wider world.

 Of interest to all – and serves to give an excellent background into why coins are important and how they came to be so. It is well worth a read!
