The William Conte Collection

An online resource exploring one of the finest collections ever formed of Norman and Angevin coins dating from 1066 to 1279. It was assembled by Dr William Conte, an American geneticist and a leading authority on Norman coinage. Dr Conte’s aim was to create a representative reference collection of coins in the best possible condition, in order to illustrate the great variety of portraits and other designs and the mints at which they were struck. The 750 coins include many that are unique or great rarities.
