PAPAL COINS is the first complete one volume catalogue of the circulating coinage of the Popes. Incorporating recent scholarship and discoveries, such as the Tiber Hoard, it spans over 1,200 years of Papal coinage, both in Italy and at Avignon. Each listing is described, along with a complete transcription of legends found in their most complete forms. All entries are cross referenced to authoritative sources and collections, including the Vatican coin cabinet. Valuations are assigned to the over 3,500 known types, hundreds of which will be found illustrated in the extensive plates. The evolution of Papal coinage is explained in clear, concise terms in the introduction, both from artistic and political perspectives. The coinage of each Pope is also introduced with a brief biography to place it in its historical context. Features include: * Complete listings for Popes, Antipopes, Anonymous & Senatorial issues * Hundreds of illustrations * Tables of Monograms, Mintmasters' marks, Papal and auxiliary arms. 255 pp., ill., 77 plates.
