This website has a series of pages devoted to the enlightenment of collectors and those interested in the medallic art. There will be reference material added as time permits. They are not intended to further any commercial aspirations but to put together information in a simple and hopefully, useful format, making the website more interesting than a simple list of medals for sale from my collection, although the website will retain that level of importance.
