Those who collect world coins from the twentieth century will find this catalog an invaluable resource. Whether it is coins that an ancestor brought home from a war or the left over money from a trip overseas, this catalog will help you quickly identify where it is from, the metal composition of the coin and a general price guide to its current value as a collectible item. There are helpful pictures that show the actual coin you are researching. If you collect 20th century world coins this book is for you. If you have only a few coins to identify you might be better off consulting a friend or a coin dealer who may loan you a copy or let you look through theirs.
OK. I know the purpose of this book is to show values and mintage of coins all over the world for a certain time period. And it does that well. Frankly, there's not a lot of information of this type freely available over the net. So, a book of this type is much needed. I find it well organized and, since it's made from lightweight paper, easy to handle for such a large book.So, how did it save me from getting scammed on ebay? I bought what was described as 1 oz ASW of silver in foreign coins. Got a good deal too. (Oh, so I thought.) Well, when the coins came, I looked up each one in this book. Guess what? They weighed less than one ounce. No doubt, this guy had taken many people who didn't know to look into this book or didn't have access to it. People often are far too trusting. He had 100% until I read the book.It's fairly easy to find information about United States coins online. And, if one searches enough, you can find foreign coins too. But it's awfully time consuming. A book like this is a powerful tool in buying and selling coins and I highly recommend it to you.- Susanna K. Hutcheson
Book is fine though large(thick), with rathar thin paper pages. Some coins don't show the value of coins in different grades ba fairly good guide as to the value. Also since there are so many countries listed "tabs" would help a lot,even if a set of blank tabs came with the book.
Probably the best on world coins, and rather comprehensive. However, it takes some getting used to the cataloging system, and not all coins are listed per country, especially some commemorative coins are missing.
The book is an excellent buy as the pages for years prior to the current year never changes. Great detail on every page. The book store supplier was an excellent source for the book.
The 2008 Standard Catalog of World Coins has everything that any coin dealer or collector could want. This edition covers the era from 1901 - 2000 and includes all legal tender regular and commemorative issues of almost all countries and territories.An invaluable resource for anyone interested in selling, buying or collecting coins from any country in the world. I utilize my copy almost each and every day.
