Established earlier this year, the John Casey Fund provides grants for research by individuals into coins, medals, tokens, jetons and paper money of the British Isles, the British Commonwealth and the territories that have been subject to British rule.
Financed from a generous bequest to the Society by the late John Casey (†2016), it is envisaged that two or three awards will be made annually. The first such award has now been granted to Richard Brickstock, for the analysis and publication of the Roman coin moulds from Fulford, York.
Applications are particularly welcomed from younger scholars enrolled with higher-education institutions, although applications from independent scholars and from other researchers will also be considered favourably.
St Edmund Memorial coinage, Penny.
