I have always liked coins. I have always regarded them as little pieces of art. However, I usually just put the ones I decided to collect in a bag or a drawer. I purchased The Whitman Guide to Coin Collecting because I wanted to start getting serious about coin collecting.As someone looking for good basic information, I found this book a jewel. It contains the basic information any coin collector needs, particularly information about how to find and properly store coins, the history of coins, and how coins are graded or valued. In fact, although I was already starting to get serious about my coin collection (minor as it is), the book was so interesting, particularly when it discusses how coins themselves are truly history, that it really intensified my interest. I have spent a fair amount now on buying proper equipment and materials to store the coins I already had and have even begun visiting a local coin shop to purchase more coins.I highly recommend this book to anyone with any interest at all in coins. Because of the historical significance of coins, it would also be interesting for anyone with an interest in history.

I have just started buying my nephews and neices coins as gifts, not sure they will turn into collectors but wanted to get them a good starter book. My husband is a collector and he thumbed through the book and gave his stamp of approval, he said it looks like it covers everything beginning coin collectors would want to know.

This guide is easy to read and understand, and has a lot of helpful information for new coin collectors like myself. The pictures are large enough to see clearly.

Interesting and informative book for the beginning collector.

I think this guide is proving useful.
