Pictures of Coins of the UK

by Tony Clayton


UK Coin Pictures - Index Page


This part of the site consists of a comprehensive collection of images of coins from the United Kingdom.

The images are organised by monarch and denomination, and can be accessed either via the Monarch Index or via the Denomination Index.

To keep the Denomination pages reasonably small, the number of varieties shown for each reign may be relatively limited. The most comprehensive range of images is best found by first selecting the Monarch and then the Denomination.

Starting in March 2015, changes were being made to make the pages more readable with smartphones.

Help and Advice


Acknowledgements

Whilst some of the images are of coins in my own collection, many of have been generously donated by wellwishers, numismatic dealers and auctioneers. I am most grateful to so many kind people for the generous donation of pictures with permission to use them on this site, in particular the two Auction Houses, Spink and Jean Elsen et Ses Fils S.A., and also the dealer AMR Coins. It is invidious to pick out particular individuals, from so many, but I must thank Martin Platt for his images which are of the highest quality, as indeed are his coins themselves.

If you have a good quality scan of a coin that is not on this site (or a better picture of one that is), and you would like to see it published here, do please let me know using my my Advice page.

Due acknowledgement of any pictures I use will be given if required.


What's New

If you access the page "What's New" you can see what recent additions and major changes have been made to pictures on the site. The version number and date of the present pages are given after each item in the indices above.

Some coins have the Spink catalogue number in the form S.1234.
