Recommended Books for Coin Collectors
The Spink book is the one you’re most likely to find a professional coin dealer in the UK using to find details and prices of a given British coin. The book lists every major coin from Celtic to the present day, together with their price.
The Standard Catalogue of British Coins is hardcover and over 800 pages long, full of illustrations. It’s a reference book rather than a guide to coin collecting, but is a necessary purchase for anyone serious about British coins.
It’s the handbook of British. Also available in digital format on Kindle.
