47th Edition Standard cat. Of World Coins 1901-2000 KP Book
The Standard Catalog of World Coins, 1901-2000 provides an impressively detailed and exhaustive reference to 20th century coins. During its nearly five-decade run, it has been heralded as the standard bearer in the numismatics community.
Vetted by experts from around the world, the 47th edition of this tradition-rich catalog offers a remarkably thorough view of the most passionately collected and popular segment of numismatics. Based on the pioneering work of numismatic giants Chester L. Krause, Clifford Mishler and Colin R. Bruce II, the Standard Catalog is the reference of choice for beginning or serious collectors, researchers and coin dealers.
The catalog continues to evolve with the World Coin market. For example, values for PF67 and PF69 have been added to many countries for modern gold coins, which are selling for premium prices at auction. In contrast, coins in lower grades of preservation are seeing value declines in many areas, providing buying opportunities for budget conscious collectors.
Extensive yet easily managed, the catalog is organized by country and denomination 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 and palladium offer key information, including:
- Total coin weight
- Actual precious metal weight
