A very scarce bibliography of Medina’s later works, covering 1923 until Medina’s death in 1930, and continuing where Feliú Cruz’s updated edition of Chiappa’s earlier bibliography of Medina left off. The eminent historian and numismatist José Toribio Medina was born in Santiago de Chile in 1852 and died there in 1930. Though numismatics was only a hobby, Medina published twenty works on the topic, many of which remain standard works. This body of work is but a fraction of his total output, with over 350 titles to his name.
