Massive in scope and encyclopedic in detail, The Standard Catalog of World Coins, 1901-2000
, provides the most comprehensive reference to 20th century coins on the market.
The 45th edition of this tradition-rich catalog is vetted by experts
worldwide, providing a global view of the most passionately collected
and popular segment of numismatics. Based on the early work of
numismatic giants Chester L. Krause and Clifford Mishler, the Standard
Catalog is the reference of choice for beginning or serious collectors,
researchers and coin dealers.
In the current market, with
precious metals prices stable, collectible coin values have settled in
to reasonable levels, driving careful collectors to seek out the highest
grade coins available. This continuing interest in high-grade,
exceptional coins is reflected in the catalog, which now offers more and
better-defined values for many countries.
Inside you'll find
new MS66, PF67 and PF69 values for coins from the Peoples Republic of
China, as well as many redefined PF67 and PF69 values for modern gold
coins world wide.
- Extensive yet easily managed, the catalog is organized by country with each listing providing:
- Current values for coins listed by date, mintmark, and grade
- Universally used KM reference numbers
- Clear descriptions and invaluable detail
In addition, listings for coins minted in silver, gold, platinum an palladium offer key information, including:
