GREEK COINS AND THEIR VALUES, a new edition In 1959 the first edition of Greek Coins and Their Values (GCV) by H.A. Seaby and Liut.-Col. Kozolubski, was published and republished in 1966 by H.A. Seaby alone. The second edition proved to be a very popular introduction to Greek coinage with their values based on the collection of the eminent scholar Prof. A. B. Cook and the coin stock of the then popular numismatic firm of B. A. Seaby Ltd. In 1978 David Sear completely revised and expanded GCV with a third edition in two volumes, which has been an unrivalled standard handbook on Greek numismatics for many collectors and dealers alike around the world. Over the last 40 years there have been many new finds, publication of newly identified whole series and types and hundreds of specialist monographs, general studies, auction catalogues and as well as the expansion of the internet, now an indispensable research tool for research. All these developments have vastly expanded our knowledge of ancient numismatics in general and Greek coinage in particular which necessitates a new GCV. The latest and fourth edition of Greek Coins and their Values by Italo Vecchi will follow the style of David Sear's 1978 edition, but will be greatly expanded in the format of Barklay Vincent Head's Historia numorum: A manual of Greek numismatics, 2nd edition, Oxford 1911 (= HN2). This synopsis of Greek numismatic research dedicated to the father of modern numismatic research, Joseph Eckhel, author of Doctrina numorum veterum, in 8 vols (1792- 1798), covers most known types and series known up to the early 20th century. After more than 100 years it is still the most popular and useful general Greek reference catalogue (without their values), covering the inception of coinage in the 7th century BC to its final merge with the coinage of the Roman Republic from the 2nd century BC to the 1st century AD. The scope of the fourth edition of GCV is to summarise the whole range of Greek coinage from West to East with the latest up-to-date references and current valuations in three volumes, beginning in 2018 with volume I, covering Spain, Gaul, Italy, Sicily, the Island off Italy and Sicily and North Africa. This will be followed by volume II, covering Thrace, Macedon, Northern and Central Greece, Peloponnesus, the Aegean Islands and Crete and III, Asia Minor, Syria, the Persian Empire, Baktria, Egypt and Cyrenaica.
