Footnotes

  • A manual of various European coins, produced to help mint officials, traders and travellers to identify foreign coins and establish their intrinsic value based upon their precious-metal content (J. Cribb, Money: from Cowrie Shells to Credit Cards, 1986; no. 746). The manual illustrates many English coins, including those from the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and Queen Mary.
