Krisadaolarn, Ronachai and Vasilijs Mihailovs, Siamese Coins from Funan to the Fifth Reign, River Books, Bangkok, Thailand, 2012, 271 pages, hardcoverk with slipcase and CD of addtiional coin images, a beautifully produced volume on Siamese coinage from the earliest times through the 20th Century. Introductory material gives an overview of the numismatic history of the pre-Siamese states of Funan, Kra Isthmus, Sri Dvaravati, Haripunjaya, the Maritime Empires and Angkor, then the beginnings of Siamese history with the Yonok, Sukhothai, Pattani, Lan Na, La Chang and Ayutthaya, then the later periods beginning with the Rattanakosin Period of 1782-1932. There follows a chapter on emblems on Siamese coins, legends on Siamese flat coins, and finally the catalogue with plates and descriptions of coins. There is a good selection of Rising Sun coinage and variants and other Burmese-related coinage and a great selection of ingot coinage (Tok, Pig mouth, flower, leaf, Tiger tongue, Chiang ingots, and bullet money). There are brass and porcelain gambling tokens, bi- and tri-lingual round coins, many with holed centers, gold coinage and modern flat coinage. The book concludes with historical documents referencing coinage. One of those books you could leaf through for hours, ex James Farr Numismatic Library.
