Great, exhaustive book of work coins. Bought this as a gift for my 9-year-old cousin who loves coins. But my goodness I didn't realize just how MASSIVE this book is. I'm a bit worried it's overwhelmingly large, but at least it has a lot of information.
To the reviewer who gave this a bad review because it doesn't contain newer coins: how hard is it to read? The title is self explanatory. Or at least it should be. This contains virtually every coin produced in the 20th century. There are separate volumes for modern coinage as well as 19th century coinage. Some people really should learn how to use their brains before they go on raging about something rather obvious.
This year's edition of the Standard Catalog has more failings than I can describe in this limited space, but I'll try:1. Values in general are absurdly low and do not square with this collector's experience as to dealer pricing. Dealers who have been relying on the catalog for guidance in their pricing will find this volume useless for that purpose. Likewise, it will be useless as an aide in fairly appraising legacy collections.2 Many. many silver and gold coins are priced in grades as high as XF at less than bullion value, sometimes at a mere fraction of bullion value.3 The very useful "BV" pricing has been completely abandoned in favor of highly inaccurate guesswork4. There often seems to be no rhyme or reason to changing or not changing prices, apart from the general low-balling of prices.
This Book is outdated and is suppose to be a 2017 issue. I have alot of World coins dated 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 that are still not listed in your "New" book. Example Kazakhstan the 50-Tenge series KM256 shows 2011 date, then it skips to KM293 dated 2014. I have 50-Tenge coins from that country dated 2012, 2013 what happened?? Look under Belarus, KM260 10-Roubles it shows a picture of a 1-Rouble? Look under Russia the 2014 10-Roubles series your have 10-listed I have the 10-listed PLUS I have 8 other ones in this series that is NOT LISTED??? Many countries stop with listing coins dated 2011-2012 ?? I know some of the countries have issued coins beyond these dates why are the coins not listed? If this Book is a 2017 Up-to-date Book why are so many coin issues missing???
