If anyone knows of a copy of:

Heads I Win: The True Story of David Gee, Australia's Most Audacious Coin Forger (ISBN-13: 9780207152467 and ISBN-10: 0207152462), written by author Jeffrey Watson; Don Thomas; Jack Bennett, was published by Angus & Robertson in 1986.

That is for sale, please advise. Thank you.


  • I am surprised with how seemingly scarce this book has become in recent years.
    There was a David Gee enthusiast who posted prolifically on the subject in an Australian subforum of Coin Community. This seems to be the link.
    I recall there being speculation as to whether such enthusiasm was driving demand for the books.
    Hopefully you are able to track down a copy at a reasonable price.

    This book is in demand among Australian numismatists; I have seen several copies offered for sale at coin club auctions here in Brisbane in recent years, and they have always sold well above estimate.

    It’s definitely a hard to find book recently.
