Contrary to what is stated in the editorial review, this catalog does not include Philippine coins during the spanish colonial period. In fairness to the authors it is stated in the foreword that this catalog deals with Ibero-American coinage. Aside from that omission, this book is worth buying in the sense that if all you collect is Spanish/Portugese Colonial Coins you won't have to buy the Other Standard Catalogs that are divided into centuries as this catalog spans the entire timeline.
647 pages of dated information. The book is formatted much like the Red Book. Published in 2002, it's pricing would be as valuable as a 2002 Red Book, i.e. not very useful in a 2013/14 market. The quality of print is significantly substandard and many of the photographs are of poor quality. This may be due to limited availability of high quality photographs, but is an area that needs work. I am a neophyte researcher in this arena, but it does appear that a significant amount of the information is inaccurate, particular mintage numbers. If Krause could update the book to reflect the current market, improve the photography and find a decent printer the tome would be of much greater value.
I've always been a fan of the Krause Standard Coin Catalogs over the past 40 years,so thus have a lot of them around. In recent years I've suddenly been getting a lot of Spanish and South America cob coins etc., and needed this specific publication.....which was very hard to find when I wanted it. Took me ages to find a copy. Glad to see it might be more easily available again.....sure beats having to dig through a dozen different assorted catalogs.
If you are interested in Spanish-Colonial coins and cobs, this book is essential. The book was published in 2002, which means prices are not current. However, it's the detailed descriptions, photos, and history of the coins that makes it so valuable. Even Krauses most recent coin books don't have current prices. And unlike Krauses other guides, this one covers all dates for all coins, up until approximately the date each country gained it's independence from Spain.
As a new coin collector I have found this reference book as one you can't do without.
A must have reference book. True that the pricing is out of date; however, that takes little away from the importance of the identification material. I agree whole heartily with D. Sedwick, in that this book is a great complement to his catalogs.
This is a very comprehensive book, and one of the few that go all the way back to colonial times. The descriptions, pictures, and valuations are very useful to any serious coin collector.
The best catalog for mexican coins collectors. Realy a great book. It is the most complete catalog on mexicans coins that I see never before.
