100 greatest ancient coins book review

Collecting Tips | SALMON

100 greatest ancient coins is less technical than aorta which I did a previous review on. First, you will see a foreword, a preface, and an introduction talking about the author and a little bit about the book, and also about the coins. next, it has a section how to collect ancient coins and what to avoid witch includes a denomination chart. next, it starts the list of the ancient coins from first minted to last not from 1 to 100 greatest. on the top of the page, there is the 1-100 number then the name of the coin, then the mint and date. on the main body of the page, there is a picture of the coin, with its actual size for reference. there is also a history piece about the coin/ ruler. on the bottom of the page, there is a timeline that shows the coins period in roman history.

I have a copy of it in my home library, the Whitman 100 Greatest series of books are great with beautiful photography. A must for every serious coin library.
