Commonwealth Coins Numismatic Reference Books

British Commonwealth coins have an interesting history and are well known for their extensive varieties. Although two coins may look the same at first glance, there have been countless minor design changes over the years, giving collectors different coin varieties. These books and catalogues are an attempt to document all known varieties in their respective series. My current books can be bought online. Some of my coin research is also published at Coin Curiosity.
