Krause Standard Catalog 1901-2000 is simply the world standard of coin catalogs for the period. Unless your collection is highly specialized within a very small region or you collect coins which Krause does not list as such (such as German notgeld or tokens) this is a catalog you must have in your private library. 2010 edition includes also CD version so you don't have to carry around this rather bulky volume if you travel with your laptop.
The countries are organized in alphabetical order and within countries coins are listed by denominations with most coins presented in black and white pictures. Every coins is priced in at least three grades (except for parts of the US listing where commemorative coins are apparently worthless below AU grade while other coins are priced in eleven grades) with prices basically reflecting current market trends.
In short - if you collect world coins and you don't have a copy, you simply should stop reading at this point and order one immediately. However, if you do have a fairly recent copy you should think twice before doing anything. The prices have been updated here and there. Russia, Belarus and Ukraine (if you collect Eastern Europe except Poland, you are in for a nice surprise!) were, Germany and France not necessarily while some markets have changed greatly over last few years. Let's then take a look at Poland which has not been seriously updated for a decade. The key issue for post-1990 coins #306 King Sigismundus (still listed at $10 for Unc) will actually cost you at least $200 (unless you know a dealer who can't use ebay). Any 2 zlote commemorative coin from 1995 will cost at least $30 - Krause offers $3,50 for most.

I bought this book primarily to get more information about coinage of the United Arab Emirates. The authors obviously knows less about the coinage than I do after living here for 9 months. Their mintages were hideously incorrect and their values were totally wrong. If they ever bothered to look at some Ebay sales prices they would at least have a clue. Add to that the fact that they even failed to list some of the issues. If you are going to write a book please take the time to do some actual research so that you are at least partially correct. If you don't know say so and quit printing a guess as a fact. Most disappointed in the low standards that allowed this to be published with so much incorrect information.

The latest 37th edition of 2010 Standard Catalog of World Coins 1901-2000 is a 'must' for any serious coin collector's library: it provides updated and comprehensive details on up to five grades of preservation, the latest market values, and detailed descriptions for nearly every world coin minted in the 20th century. With maps, small black and white coin images, and a searchable CD featuring the ability to magnify images to 400%, this is a 'must' for any serious coin collector.

I have found the information compiled in this book to be invaluable in helping me identify coins from all over the world. Without it it would of taken me much longer to put together my world coin collection. Images of all coins are actual size which is also very helpful in confirming the coins country of origin. Great buy for the info and low cost.

This book is an indispensible reference for World Coin collectors. This book contains tens of thousands of pictures of coins for reference and has information on the size and composition of all the coins referenced. The book is organized by country and then by denomination of the coins with furthur breakdown by periods of rule if necessary. There is a good section in the front dealing with all of the various numeral systems in use throughout the world.

You might also want to buy the companion books for the 1800's and 21st century. The catalog of the 19th century also has a great section with pictures of the various coats of arms to help quickly identify which country a coin is from.

There is also a CD included with a PDF copy of the book. The digital has hyper-links to aid in searching.

Needed visual examples of Chinese and Japanese coins and this resource has them. Also has tutorial on numbers, mint marks and numbers which were very helpful in determining coin age and origin.
