Edited by Oliver D. Hoover
Hardback, illus., Price US $125
This volume collects together the papers presented at the Coinage of the Americas Conference on Mark Newby and the St. Patrick coinage, held in 2007. The papers address a wide variety of questions that have dogged the study of the St. Patrick series since the eighteenth century. Included here are new approaches to the major problems of metrology, iconography, and chronology, as well as the divisive issue of who was actually responsible for the production of this enigmatic Irish coinage.
An important survey of the various forms of money used in America in the seventeenth century serves as a background for the circulation of the St. Patrick coinage in West Jersey, while the final paper offers a reassessment of Mark Newby and his importation of the coinage to America. An appendix presents all of the St. Patrick coins in the collection of the American Numismatic Society.
The Coinage of The Americas Conference is an annual meeting that provides a forum for exchange of knowledge on a selected theme in the numismatics of the western hemisphere. The contributors to this volume are Oliver D. Hoover, Philip L. Mossman, William Nipper, Brian J. Danforth, Louis E. Jordan, Roger S. Siboni, Vicken Yegparian, Robert Wilson Hoge.

A set of COAC Proceedings is a must for any library on American numismatics, but I must admit that I don't believe my set is complete. Could anyone provide us with a list of each conference date and subject?
Such a list would also help clear up my confusion over this press release - it says the Newby conference was held in 2007, but the cover image lists a date of November 11, 2006. The confusion is likely a typo. -Editor
