This third edition of Gunmoney by Philip Timmins is a scholarly publication written for collectors, dealers and students of Irish numismatics. The book is extensively illustrated and lists every denomination that was struck and their major variants. Some varieties in the book have never been published before.

The book is set out month by month, each of which begins with an account of that month’s history of the campaign. It includes the coins mintage figures and details of the coins issued that month. The war diary is followed with a table and images of the variants which fully describe and illustrate all of the denominations struck in that month. The table of varieties sets out   diameter, weight, orientation, edge type with reference number, rarity and an estimate of current prices. The table also includes remarks where necessary and the known off-metal coins associated with that month.

Edition III incorporates many updates to each month, revised pricing and new chapters not included in the first or second editions of the book, including  new chapters on the manufacturing practices of the Mints and on Gunmoney coin metallurgy.
