Art historical studies have hitherto been mostly confined to sculptures, paintings, furniture and jewellery. Boldly moving away from the conventional approach to the study of coins as mere economic entities, the present volume is the first systematic, comprehensive and analytical study of ancient Indian coins as objects of art. Coins, like historical monuments, sculptures and paintings, have a symbolic meaning behind the visual form and epitomise the socio-religious conditions and the art traditions in which they emerged. Focusing on the coins of south India, the study, combining empirical data with theoretical insights, explores the subtle interrelationships between the steady evolution of coinage and the simultaneous development of art in this region. Tracing thematic, iconographic and stylistic affinities between the art in coins and the art in stone, the study clearly reveals that as sculptural art was more pervasive than numismatic art, the latter recurrently felt the impact of the former. Often, the mint masters and coin makers, faithfully reproduced, on a miniature scale, specimens of sculpture and architecture on the coins. At the same time, coins too were rarely featured in other mediums of art. Probing the metallic composition and the process of production of the coins of different dynasties and periods, the present study also analyses the technical constraints of numismatic art. The volume includes an exhaustive corpus, prepared for the first time ever, of the symbols and devices on the coins of the major dynasties of ancient south India. The book will be of interest to archaeologists, numismatists, art historians and economic historians.

A fascinating introduction to ancient coins and collecting that is both an art book and an initiation. Who has ever dreamed of taking a close look, or perhaps even handling - or, still better, actually owning - a priceless coin of the ancient world? Minted in electrum, gold, silver, or bronze, coins were once the booty of conquest, the substance of princely, royal, and imperial treasures, and are now the pride of the world's major museums. The collection illustrated and discussed in this book is a fine demonstration of what can be accomplished through individual interest, effort, and patience, plus an awareness that leaves room for spontaneous impulses when guided by adequate advice and documented counsel. The result is an accumulated heritage that can be bequeathed to future generations. The collector known as JDL has always been drawn to beauty and exemplarity, his choices have been guided by balance and harmony. Here he presents us with remarkable evidence of the genius of master engravers of the ancient world who, inspired by the muses, were the first to forge monetary art and techniques. The examples illustrated here also reflect another penchant of the man who collected them - a love of travel, a desire to explore the ancient world from one end to the other. The geographical scope of this collection adds further coherence to a set of coins that covers a thousand-year period starting at the very dawn of coinage in the sixth century BCE.

New SECOND EDITION with 27 varieties not in SCBC, including six design types and thirteen mint issues not in the first edition of this book, plus updated population indicators. This is an illustrated guide to the known Irish hammered pennies minted under the Yorkist kings Edward IV and Richard III. It includes a quick index to coin markings, a detailed chronology, and over 100 illustrations, including large format photographs of numerous coin specimens. Jasper Burns is the author of many articles about ancient coins as well as more than thirty books, including Coin Stories (Pietas), Great Women of Imperial Rome (Routledge), Vipsania: A Roman Odyssey (Pietas), and Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States (Johns Hopkins University Press). "I consider that you have individually tackled a task that most collectors of Irish coins have avoided or been unable to tackle. And the key to this was your identifying that many of these coins were languishing misidentified as English coins, and this combined with the development of the internet coin market ... has meant that you have been able to assemble a lot of examples and have been able to start identifying them by the portraits and styles so that pieces with virtually no legends can now be properly identified as Irish." - John Stafford-Langan
