About Us

 

Hookmoor Ancient Coins is the online store of Lee Toone Ancient Coins. Lee has been involved in numismatics for over forty years. For the last thirty of these he has concentrated on Roman numismatics and numismatic books. He divides his time between numismatic research and dealing. He has maintained a presence at major Yorkshire coin shows for several years and this website is a natural extension to these activities.

He specialises in the coinage of Roman Britain and is currently working on a definitive catalogue of the issues of the Roman mint of London from AD 296 to 326. He is also working on a collectors’ guide to Romano-British coinage that will be a much needed update to Gilbert Askew’s “The Coinage of Roman Britain”. He would be grateful for any contributions of new material towards these projects.

He also gives talks on Romano-British coinage to local numismatic societies. Please get in touch if you are interested.
