This book is illustrated superbly with very clear colour pictures on
good quality paper. It is made well and looks like it will stand up to
the wear and tear of regular reference well.

It catalogues all types of coins minted in England and includes
pictures and prices for each type of coins. It also lists many
different varieties, although not all varieties are listed, most major
ones are and it gives a current price guide for these as well.

The coins are listed by date and date right back to Celtic coins  
Coins Of England 2010 by Spink
minted in Britain. It then goes right through
Roman coins,hammered coins and milled
coins up to modern coins and includes mint
and proof sets and their 2010 estimated
values in different conditions.

There are also sections on grading coins
with pictures which will help some collectors
to establish the rough grade of their coins
which will enable them to figure out their
coin's rough value.

Although a guide price is exactly that a
guide and should not be taken as gospel,
Spink do a good job of trying to keep the
guide prices in these book up to date each
year.
This book also includes an explanation of numismatic terms and translation of legends found on
coins, information about numismatic clubs and trade association and a numismatic Bibliography for
further reading.

Conclusion:

This book remains an essential guide for the numismatist, whether a beginner or an expert collector.
I personally purchase a copy each year to keep up to date with market values and to see if any new
coin varieties have been added.
