Hookmoor Website Closure

After many years, I have decided to close down this website. Since retiring from active online sales, exacerbated by Brexit and COVID, the costs of maintaining the website relative to income from sales means it is no longer viable. So when the current webspace contract expires, it will be no more!

So please, download and store any of the resources you frequently consult. I will be keeping electronic documents so a simple email request will work but the Contact Us button will not be available!

I have set up a dedicated Facebook Group (The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine) to help stimulate discussion in the build up to the publication of our second edition. It is a private group so you will need to send me an email address or DM me on Facebook if you want me to send you an invitation to join.

I anticipate the website will disappear at the end of June 2023. In the meantime I will investigate the possibility of setting up a more basic free version but that is by no means a “done deal”.

Best wishes to you all and thanks for your support,

Lee Toone

The DiMarzio Collection

The most important London mint collection for over a decade is about to come to market. Not since the Vogelaar collection was offered by Spink and CNG in 2008 and 2009 will so much material come onto the market. The collection has been built up over twenty years and consists of over 500 pieces that will be offered by CNG over several sales starting with CNG 120. There will be further offerings in e-auction 516, CNG 121, and e-auction 525. Paul DiMarzio kept impeccable records of these coins and provenance is recorded for each item.

The collection includes many LMCC plate coins and some coins that have yet to feature in LMCC. That will have to wait until the second edition. I have taken great pleasure in helping Paul build up this collection and hope that it can be published in its entirety in some form in the future. CNG have allowed Paul the space to include a bio about him and his collection and this is included in the first lot here – CNG 120

It’s disappointing to lose a collector of this series but it does give others the opportunity to acquire some rare and interesting coins, as well as fill in a few gaps with more common pieces. I think it is fair to say that there will be something for everyone!


Numismatic Books for Sale


I am currently having to slim down my personal numismatic library. So, over the next few months I will be listing a number of books for sale. Images are available on request.


I can only ship within the UK and all prices include shipping by Royal Mail. There would also be the option of collecting from the York Coin Fair next January if that goes ahead.


See the listing on the Books for Sale page.
