Author: Richard Plant

Review: Mr Dimitrov says: "An interesting approach to look at the history timeline when talking about coins. To book goes from Old Testament to Acts and St Paul with lots of pictures and price quotes. It was a really interesting journey!"

Also available to purchase as an eBook:

A new handsome hardback by Rev. Richard Plant. Contemporary Biblical coins are covered, as are examples of coins from Biblical Lands and newer coins showing Biblical themed images.


  • Traditionally stitched and very well produced hardback.
  • Price data for the coins featured.
  • Over 200 pages.
  • Nearly 600 different biblical related coins are illustrated.
  • Indexed by person and place name.
  • Huge appeal, not just to Christians or people interested in bible study - this is a neutral book for all and contains no bias or strong religious views.

The book illustrates coins contemporary to the new testament as well as coins depicting images of old testament events and those linked to biblical lands or cities in some way. It practically re-tells the story of the bible using illustrations of coins to provide the pictures of the alleged events.

Well written in the usual Richard Plant style. It will even appeal to people that aren't Christian and just have an interest in history. For those of you that are Christian, the book will help the stories and people of the bible seem more real.

A good idea is to quote the last paragraph of the author's Preface:
"My aim has been partly to make the Ancient World of Biblical times more real to those who read this book: often showing a number of coins from a particular city to give the "feel" of a particular place. My hope is that as the Ancient World becomes more alive for you, then the stories of the Bible will become more meaningful too, and Jesus and Peter and St. Paul and the others will, to a certain extent, come alive. Perhaps this book does happen to be a catalogue as well – I hope it is, but in a way, that is incidental!"

Each coin is well drawn by the Reverend and each coin also has an approximate price associated with it. So not only is this a good read, but it's also a Biblical coin price-guide.
