The nature of the Van Loon books is iconic. We can't think of any other book in the field of

Numismatics, or any other discipline or science, where the leading reference works are nearly 300 years old and still in active current use. This is not only unprecedented, but astonishing. These
volumes are so remarkable and important to numismatists and historians alike that the original
print from the 1720s is indeed still used regularly, but a complete series of these can cost up to €8,000!

This new issue is from last year (2021), released in a one-time limited edition and sold out now at most dealers.
