The first volume covering gold coins from 1257 -1603 was published in 1996, followed by the second volume covering English gold coins from 1603 – 20th century, published in 2002. It is the finest collection in private hands and is outranked only by that of the British Museum.
The Herbert Schneider Collection, Volume 3 – Anglo-Gallic, Flemish, and Brabantine Gold Coins 1330 – 1794
This third volume cataloguing the Herbert Schneider collection is concerned with Continental gold coins, albeit with a strong English connection. It consists of 348 Anglo-Gallic, Flemish and Brabantine gold coins all meticulously catalogued giving full transcriptions of the legends and details of the classification and die-linking of each coin. The introduction discusses the historical background of the subject territories which, when read in conjunction with the catalogue, will help to understand the coins. A major index catalogues every substantial later medieval European hoard containing gold coins from Britain and its neighbours.
Every piece is illustrated on the 37 plates making the sylloge a valuable tool for identification and further study. An additional 2 plates illustrate the 13 English gold coins which have been added to the collection since the publication of volume two.
