Christopher Wren’s invaluable trio of guides to Medieval pennies, including The Short-Cross Coinage 1180-1247, were first published in the 1990s and are intended as an introduction to assist new collectors and detectorists alike in classifying the coins.

The book gives a brief historical context of the short cross coinage and the development of the classification system in used today.  Information from the original written records has been invaluable in establishing a chronology, and in placing coins of the different types in sequence.

The Hammered Corner has recently released a short video, Short Cross Coins Made Easy, which features extracts from the book and aims to simplify the short cross coinage for beginners.  Spink Books are delighted to share it herewith:

Wren’s Royal Numismatic Society Lhotka Prize-winning title is packed full of practical information on this extensive series, including tables and many drawings, together with a detailed bibliography and notes on such subjects as legend errors, continental imitations and the related issues from Scotland and Ireland.
