Details

This book is an account of the coinages of the English Civil War and their context in that period.

The book explores the varied coinage and currency of England and Wales at the time of the "Great Rebellion" which broke out against King Charles I in 1642.

The associated beginnings of the systematic awarding of medals for military service are also examined.

Coin illustrations, drawn largely from the collection of the National Museum of Wales, are supported by portraits of mint-masters and related documents
