The Book Department has been supplying and publishing numismatic reference works for collectors for over 100 years. The acquisition of the Seaby imprint in 1996 further strengthened our reputation as the worldwide leader in this field.

When browsing Spink's stock you will find titles which have become definitive reference works in their fields. Our annual Coins of England catalogue, Roman Coins & Their Values and other classics by David R. Sear, British Commemorative Medals and Their Values by Christopher Eimer, British Battles & Medals and many other important works are used by collectors, dealers and auctioneers worldwide.

Spink has also published many specially commissioned works on behalf of governments, major institutions and private collectors. Money in the Bank for HSBC, Currency in the State of Bahrain for the Bahrain Monetary Authority and Banknotes of British Malaya for Mr Frank Goon, were all produced, published and marketed by Spink.

We are proud to be distributors for a range of publications, on behalf of many learned societies and authors, such as:

Royal Numismatic Society

British Numismatic Society

Hawkins Publications (Michael Mitchiner)

In addition to our new and second-hand book service, we are also pleased to offer a range of coin accessories, including envelopes, tickets and the high quality Abafil coin storage cases.
