Ken Jacobs' coins of South Africa : a complete reference book on South African coins.


 

 

Preface :

Ken Jacobs was born in Benoni in 1922, and has lived most of his life on the East Rand, where he is a well known businessman and numismatist.

He became fascinated with, and started collecting South African coinage about ten years ago. In the best tradition, the hobby became a passion, and time and money became insignificant in pursuit of missing coins from his collection.

Mr Jacobs felt the need for this book because nowhere could he find a complete or accurate description of South African coins, and he has spend many hours tirelessly examining actual coins as well as dedicated research on all available records, books and catalogues.

The result is this monumental work destined to be regarded as one of the most beautiful coin books in the world.
