Respected Australian Numismatist, Peter Lane, is to launch his new book, The Coin Cabinet: A cultural history of the numismatic collection in the Art Gallery of South Australia at the forthcoming NAAC2017 in Melbourne. Peter is Honorary Numismatist at the AGSA in Adelaide and has been working on this book for many years. Edited by Walter Bloom, Honorary Numismatist at the WA Museum in Perth, it’s great to see this work finally published. It’s a hardcover 215 page publication of A4 size, with over 200 colour illustrations. As the title suggests it is a publication on numismatic cultural history and not a catalogue. The book will be available for viewing at the NAAC2017 Reception, to be held at the RACV Club on the evening of Friday 20 October. Registration for NAAC2017 is open until the 30th September.
