Description of this Book

Hamish MacMaster's 2009 Commemorative Medals catalog, covering the period from 1941, has been revised and updated as a new second edition by Hamish and Martin Purdy as joint compilers, and was launched at the International Numismatic Conference in Wellington on July 3 this year.

It is now printed on gloss paper, with larger images (50mm rather than 35mm), with many new discoveries and additions since publication of the 1st edition in 2009. Almost totally reworked following the first edition, this new book covers over 500 individual commemorative medals, in addition to various modern "collector series" listed in a separate appendix.

An innovation this time is a full index of legends, so if your medal is undated or you can't find it for some reason, the index can be used to find the right reference number. Soft cover, 314 pages, A4 format, semi-gloss paper, black-and-white images, all enlarged, sharpened and cleared of background matter for clarity.

The catalog is not intended as a price guide, though some selling prices observed by the authors have been recorded. The companion price guide to the 1st edition by Anthony Grant is recommended for this purpose.

This is the third in a projected short series of specialized catalogs of NZ exonumia published by the Royal Numismatic Society of New Zealand.
