Excerpt from Simmon's Essay on Irish Coins, and of the Currency of Foreign Monies in Ireland: With Mr. Snelling's Supplement Also, an Additional Plate, Containing Nineteen Coins, Never Before Coins

The knowledge of antient Coins is not merely a matter of curiosity, but of use; it has a manifest relation to Sciences, such as Chronology, Antiquities and History, and serves to ascertain and illustrate them. For Coins, no less than Medals, "give a great light to History, in confirming such passages as are true, in settling such as are told after different manners, and in recording such as have been omitted." The truth of which will, I conceive, appear from facts in dispute amongst our Historians, which are now settled and confirmed by the evidence of some of the Coins mentioned in the following Essay. This kind of Study is so confessedly interesting, that many treatises on this subject have been published in several of our neighbouring countries; witness those of Bouteroue & Le Blanc, on the French coins, of Thomas Broeder Bircherod, on the Danish, of Elias Brenner, on the Swedish, and of M. Folkes and S. M. Leake, Esqrs. on the English. But we have not as yet any particular treatise on the Monies of this Kingdom. There are indeed two curious but very short chapters on Irish Coins, one in the Antiquities of Ireland, by Sir James Ware, the other in the Irish-Historical Library, by Bishop Nicholson; the conciseness of which induced me to draw up (at first only for my own amusement and instruction) some observations upon what they had written on that subject: And although I have been enabled to make several additions from very curious Coins and Records, which they had not seen, I cannot give my Reader a truer, as I cannot wish to give him a more favourable account of this Essay, than that it is chiefly the work of these two learned Antiquaries; and as such I presume to recommend it to his perusal. If I have at any time ventured to dissent from these great Men, I have given the reasons, sometimes I confess but conjectural, that determined my opinion, which I freely submit to better information.
