Coauthor Lee Toone writes:
I am pleased to be able to let you all know that ‘The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine’ has finally been published.
As ever, with these things, it always takes longer than expected to deliver a finished product but it is now available from Spink priced
at £50. A short piece about the book was published in the recent Spink ‘Insider’ magazine.
That's great news. Thanks. Here is some further information. -Editor
The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine
by Hubert J Cloke and Lee Toone
‘A comprehensive catalogue and survey of the output of the London mint from AD 296 to 325. From when Constantius invaded Britain to regain
the Britannic Empire back from Allectus to its closure in 325 when Constantine began to shift his power base to the East, the London mint was
responsible for a vast output of Roman coinage. The Roman Imperial Coinage (RIC, volumes VI and VII)) records around 600 types; the authors of
this book have increased the number of known types to 1,037 and have illustrated 90% of these with images on plates facing the catalogue tables in
sylloge style. They have also provided a hoard census which lists numbers for each type found in four major hoards. This enables an objective rarity
value to be assigned to each coin type.’
Spink will have the book available at the Birmingham Coin Fair on 13th September and Coinex in London on 25th and 26th September. Hugh
and I will be present at both shows and will be happy to answer any questions about the book and/or sign copies if required.
Spink will also have a stand at the International Numismatic Congress in Taormina, Sicily where copies should be available for
inspection and purchase. I will also be there for a few days and again will be happy to answer any questions or discuss the book in
Finally, just a reminder that some important London mint coins from my collection are being sold in the Spink September and December
auctions. The September catalogue should be online on the Spink website any day now.
