All images in this collection are exclusive to Alamy. With the exception of current UK currency, the coins are part of private collections with property releases from the owners. The rules on the use of coins for commercial purposes varies from country to country but are usually allowed within limits. Check the local rules in each instance. Constraints are typically applied to prevent forgery - limiting the amount of a banknote reproduced or example. Many countries apply restrictions on the use of the images of living individuals if their image is reproduced on a coin. In many cases the reproduction of images of royalty have strict restrictions.
