Checklist of Islamic Coins
Album, S. Checklist of Islamic Coins. Third Edition. Quarto, pp. 324 pages, 6000 listings, rarity guide and bibliography. No plates. Card covers. Collectors of Islamic Coins have long bemoaned the lack of general literature on the subject. In particular, there has never been a general listing of Islamic coin types that could serve as a convenient guide to what exists, what is readily collectible, and what is rare. This is now the third edition of Steve Album’s standard reference work featuring a numbered list of coin-issuing Islamic rulers from c.652 to c.1890 by denomination and often by type, a brief introduction to Islamic coin collecting & short notes on coinage and standard references throughout. A highly useful bibliography with much background information as well as a six-level rarity guide. Includes information on coins minted in North Africa, the Middle East, Anatolia & the Caucasus, and Central Asia.
