Gallery of Coins and Tokens

These are just a few examples of the types of coins, tokens and medallions that can be found and collected. Many people like to specialise in certain categories, such as ancient (e.g Greek, Roman, Celtic); Anglo-Saxon, or medieval; local token coinage; medallions and commemoratives, and many others. Where dates are given for ancient coins, archaeologists are using BCE (Before Common Era) for B.C and CE (Common Era) for A.D
