Winner of the BNS Blunt Prize 2020!

I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded the British Numismatic Society’s Blunt Prize for 2020!

Named after the pioneering Anglo-Saxon numismatist Christopher Evelyn Blunt (1904-1987), the Blunt Prize is awarded to individuals who have made significant contributions to the study of the coins, tokens, banknotes and medals of Britain and the former British Empire. This year, the BNS singled me out for my ‘considerable output, energy and commitment to British numismatics’, and drew attention to my ongoing work on the remarkable collection of Elizabethan coins assembled by the late Chris Comber.

The list of previous recipients is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of numismatics and economic history, and it is a great honour to join their ranks. Many thanks to the Council of the British Numismatic Society for this most generous award!

‘Coin hoarding’ book nominated for international book prize

I am pleased to announce that my latest book, ‘Coin hoarding in medieval England and Wales, c.973-1544. Behaviours, motivations, and mentalités’ (Oxford: BAR, 2019), has been nominated for the International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN) Book Prize!

Founded in 1951, the IAPN is the world’s leading association of numismatic firms, bringing together  more than 114 companies operating across five continents. Since 1982 it has awarded a prize for the best numismatic publication issued each year. Previous winners of the prize have included leading scholars like Philip Grierson, Mark Blackburn, Michael Metcalf, and Catherine Eagleton. It is a great honour to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award!

Why not have a look at the book yourself? You can buy copies direct from the publisher, BAR, via their website.
