The book attempts to catalogue all known pattern and proof coins in gold, together with off-metal strikes and unofficial fantasies, also in gold. Included are the English series from Edward VI to Elizabeth I (1547-1603) and the coinage of Great Britain from James I to Elizabeth II sterling coinage (1603-1968). Very Comprehensive.

Although the edition shown is fairly old, the current edition ( The 7th ) is out now. Essential for any gold coin collector, but since it covers such a huge amount of coins the information is a little sparse. Can be obtained from most coin dealers, Krause Publications and some 2nd hand bookstores

One of the first books with full colour throughout, studies more the history of the coin and its design than give technical information.
A rather enjoyable read.

Blurb inside cover reads "....listing some 6,000 coins with nearly 2,000 illustrations."
Its true, but this book failed to impress. It may be because all the information is available in the other guides or because of the brevity either way, not recommended as a single volume reference.
