Granted, with today's technology, the Krause catalog could have better images for many coins. It could also have at least five basic gradings and prices for each coin instead of three or four. But all in all, it is still the best and the most complete catalog in the market. It is the reference of choice for every numismatic afficionado and every profesional. I even did see it used by European dealers who were not fluent in English. I am just an amateur, and I cannot do without it.

Actually I've just seen the 97 edition & usu buy these every few years or so. Well, if you are interested in World Coins then buy a Krause WC book. They do it differently every couple of years. For example my 1985 ed. comes boxed in 2 volumes vol1=A-F, vol2 =G-Z, from about 1800 to present in ea volume. Before then they used to have one massive volume covering from about 1760 to present. Please realize you'll have to buy both the 1801-1900 and then the 1900 to present volumes and it's a real pain to start following a listing in a country & then have to dig out the other volume when you pass 1899. Also you'll probably need the 1701-1800 and the 1600-1700. There's a really nasty tendency for Krause to only show part of the back of a coin design. However the book has good points: e.g. nothing else lists all world coins by date & grade & mm & you can see what's been made & what you want. Also prices usually don't change rapidly, even for rarer 1800's crowns in mint state so you can get away with an older (& MUCH cheaper) volume.

I ordered this item thinking it was the paperback book that came with a dvd of the same book free like the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1900 to present I had ordered just weeks before. Even though it was not what I though I had ordered I am happy with the product and it works very well. The features are easy to understand and use and it takes up very little space how ever I find I am using a bit of my time looking for it becouse it has gotten in with music CD's or movies. I will be ordering the Book as soon as it comes up for sale as it is a lot less bother to take the book when I price coins away from home then it is to take my laptop or find a PC to use the DVD.

The Standard Catalog of World Coins: 1801-1900 is the most useful and convenient reference available today. To have all coin types of all countries in one volume is amazing and eliminates hours of internet searches looking for specialist sites for obscure countries. This is the standard and all dealer prices make reference to this volume. A 'must have'!!

Format: Paperback
I need a guide so I just do not blindly pay big bucks for cute pictures. There are a lot of good guides and some more specific on particular eras and locations such as Westphalia. But as you do a coin search you are bound to run across something you are not familiar with and need a guide. This guide is a great place to start; it is easy to navigate and gives cursory information on particular locations and times surrounding the coin's production.

Keeping in mind that this is just a guide, there are holes and the coins are not displayed in color. On the other hand the coins shown are in actual size; size is hard to translate form internet pictures.

With all the electronic references today it is nice to have something tactile, static and transportable. This book meet al those needs.

This is a book that every collector whose interests exceed his backyard and go beyond his birthdate must have at home. There is no better help to start expanding your collection beyond 1901.
There is no better does not mean that there cannot be a better one. Some remarks must be taken into consideration
- this is an American catalog so prices in your country (if you're not American that is) are most certainly different and there is no point to waste your time to prove Krause wrong. E.g. prices of German states' coins in Germany are 50 to 100% higher than in Krause. They are which means that if you are looking for them you move to eBay and look for them elsewhere but not in Germany. Foreign dealers treat Krause prices of foreign coins seriously.
- this is an American catalog which has a soft spot for American coins. Most foreign readers will be mildly amused by eighteen pages of remarkably uninspired designs of the US patterns (fortunately most of them are not shown) or twelve pages of "territorial gold".
- this is an American catalog so you may find some of coins from your country missing completely or missing a picture.
If you can accept all this, you will be happy with your purchase. If you can't, you should think if you won't be much happier with a more specific coin catalog but be sure that no other can give the kind of general view you find in this one.

Format: Paperback
This is a publication of note. Highly informative for the beginner or seasoned collector there is a certain lure for these magnificent looking coins and abundant information on them. I will have to admit that I was certainly intrigued by this publication and spent several hours rummaging through the information contain herein. I have collected coins on and off for years and this was a good place to start and jump back in to that rewarding and enriching hobby.
