Dykes, D. W. Coinage and Currency in Eighteenth Century Britain. The Provincial Coinage. London, 2011. This book, written by an expert in the field and drawing on recent research, aims to put Britains eighteenth-century provincial token coinage into the context of the currency problems of the time. On the basis of a wide range of both documentary and secondary sources it examines its major manufacturers and their intentions, and through profiles of many of the issuers involved it sets out to give a living dimension to a bygone monetary phenomenon.
