I started on my study over 6 years ago. Initially my intention was to list all the different varieties of the 30 Tari coins. By 2013 I had finish the 30 Tari study and had catalogued over 230 different varieties. This was over 100 varieties more than had previously been listed.
I then decided to expand my study to include every coin minted by the Knight during their stay in Malta 1530 to 1798, In 2013 I visited many of the major museum in Europe and Photographed about 3000 coins.
I have recently completed the basic work on the coins for the Grand Masters Adrien Wignacourt to Hompesch 1692 -1798 and am about to re visit the major museums in Europe to photograph more coins. I’m sure I’ll be finding many more new varieties.
