Scottish Coins
A history of small change in Scotland.
Author: Nicholas Holmes. Curator of the largest collection of Scottish coins at the National Museums of Scotland, editor of The British Numismatic Journal
Publisher: NMS Publishing Limited. © 1998

A "flyer" for this book arrived in the post the day after I got out from our bookshelves "The Scottish Coinage" by Stewart, a book which I first read about 30 years ago. Even from the flyer the book sounded good.
For those who have ever tried to find general or background information about any specialised subject, you will know just how difficult it can be to find. The arrival therefore of a new book about Scottish coins is to be welcomed.
Its 112 pages provide a very readable and interesting review of the history and background of Scotland's very own coinage. It is amply illustrated with photographs of actual coins.
It will be an essential book for all with an interest in the coinage of Scotland. Even for non-collectors there is much of interest within its pages.
Very reasonably priced, (the Scots are known to be careful with their money!) at £5.99
