Arne Kirsch of Germany forwarded this information about a new book by
Dr. Richard B. Smith titled The Coinage of the Anglo-Hannoverian Personal Union 1714-1837, The Personal Union with Great Britain - from Hannover to Hannover in five generations.
This new work by Richard Smith is the first comprehensive review of the Anglo-Hannoverian Regal coinage since Welter and will become an essential reference book for all those interested in this area of numismatics.
It is divided into two parts; the first deals with how the succession of the Brunswick-Luneburg Electors on the British Throne came about, their place on the world's stage, their titles and the main characteristics of the design of their coinage. An insight into the lives of these monarchs is given with a brief review of the history of the period. The structure of British and Hannoverian coinages are compared and described. The results of significant surveys are published for the first time giving an insight into the rarity of these coins.
