Special Publications

In 1991, the Society established a Special Publication series to publish monographs on numismatic topics. This was funded by a generous bequest from Roy Osbourne. The purpose of the series is to support the publication of monographs for works too extensive for the British Numismatic Journal.

The Society welcomes applications for publication for the Special Publication series. If you are interested in publishing within the series then please contact the Society's  in the first instance.

To date the Society has published the volums listed below. These can be purchased (with a discount for members) from Spink.
