An illustrated guide to the known Irish hammered pennies minted under the English kings Edward IV, Edward V, Richard III, and Henry VII.  This book includes a quick index to coin markings, a detailed chronology, and over 100 illustrations.

The Fifth Edition presents new design types and mint issues - including a possible new type for Richard III - and summarizes a chronology for the series proposed by Oisin MacConamhna.

Jasper Burns is the author of many articles about ancient coins as well as more than thirty books, including Coin Stories (Pietas), Great Women of Imperial Rome (Routledge), Bulla Felix: The Roman Robin Hood (Pietas), and Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States (Johns Hopkins University Press).

"I consider that you have individually tackled a task that most collectors of Irish coins have avoided or been unable to tackle.  And the key to this was your identifying that many of these coins were languishing misidentified as English coins, and this combined with the development of the internet coin market...has meant that you have been able to assemble a lot of examples and have been able to start identifying them by the portraits and styles so that pieces with virtually no legends can now be properly identified as Irish."
