The worlds first coin colouring book.
Historically coins have always been very lacking in colour, being made of a single piece of metal. The things they depict though; the faces, plants, heraldry, swords, ships, crowns, horses etc, are all actually very colourful in real life. Coins are therefore the ideal candidate to add colour to. Use this book to create realistic life-like coloured works of art, or go wild with them and colour them in your own fantastic style. Most of them have been waiting for centuries just for you to add a bit of colour!
Containing some basic coin images, some intermediate and also some very intricate ones. Each coin is accompanied by a short paragraph of information.
