Please note that we have rendered the inscriptions as they are visible on the coin, not what the inscription type should read. We will be adding this in addition to the visible inscription at a later date.

While we do our best to provide you with the most accurate information we can, such a huge undertaking will invariably include mistakes. If you spot any inaccuracies or problems with the record, please contact m.c.vrij@bham.ac.uk with the subject line ‘Mimsy error’ and we will endeavour to correct it.
