The lists in the Coins for Sale section constitute a sample from my stock of Greek, Roman bronze, Roman silver and billon, Greek Imperial, Byzantine, English hammered and milled, and world coins. A miscellaneous section includes tokens, medals and other 'paranumismatic' items and the Black Museum, forgeries and coins that have been messed about with.

I update the lists on a fairly frequent basis, but if you do not see exactly what you are looking for do contact me, as only a portion of my stock is represented here.

What's New

A long overdue but bumper update, 904 new items across the board, some interesting books and lots of coins to suit the modest pocket.


I now have a Paypal account. Whether or not you use Paypal please see the revised terms and conditions at the bottom of this page, there are several changes.


I am occasionally asked if it is alright to 'lift' illustrations from the site for research purposes, this is no problem at all, though if they are being published in any form an acknowledgment is always appreciated.

Photographs of most of the coins are now available online. If you see image displayed under the catalog number you can see a picture of the coin by clicking on the word image.

Note: Due to the difficulties of photographing coins under artificial light the colours shown in the photographs may differ from those of the actual coins. Please also bear in mind that the size shown on screen will be different to the actual size of the coins. The photographs are provided as a guide only, but are of the actual coins offered for sale. As most of the images are now scanned (to save time) it is frequently remarked that my coins look better in hand than they do in the illustrations!

Roman Heads

For collectors of Roman 'heads' there is a free download, simply listing all those in whose names coins in the Imperial and Greek Imperial series were issued, I have for some years been giving away a photocopied A4 version in the shop and many collectors have found it a useful aide-memoire, you can now download and print a more sophisticated version of this to make a handy A5 booklet, just go to the Downloads menu and click as instructed.
