Author: Michael A. Marsh
Publisher: Cambridge (Publications)

Since the appearance of its First Edition in 1980, this book has been an important resource for collectors and dealers interested in British gold sovereigns. After a brief chapter about the first sovereign, that of Henry VII in 1489, it catalogues every type, date, variety and mintmark of modern sovereign, from 1817 to date. Every coin is given a catalogue reference number (M.A.M. xxx), although many dealers abbereviate this to "MM" numbers. There is also a rarity scale in line with existing practice from C (Common) to R7 (Highest Rarity Possible).
This book is an excellent definitive work on the gold sovereign, and should be regarded as an informative reference work. It is not intended to be a current price guide. This is perfectly sensible and understandable, in most specialist subjects there are books which are considered a classic reference guide long after their publication, whereas annual price guide catalogues become less valuable as they age.
A number of the illustrations are now in colour.

The book is organised firstly by reign, then by major design type, followed by mints, dates, and varieties.
The chapter headings give a clear guide as to the contents:
