If you collect world coins, you need to purchase the Standard Catalog series from Krause Publications. The 20th Century book that I purchased came with a DVD. I kinda look at this as a "2 for 1" deal as the DVD has the same contents as the book. I noticed that the prices on some coins went up while others went down. With the DVD, I can look up countries almost as fast as the book (there will be some of you who will experience either fast finds or slow ones depending on your computer processing speed). Overall, I only hope that Krause will include DVD's in future editions.

This is a book a coin collector simply cannot live without. Over 2000 pages packed with information on coins. Obviously, there are better catalogues for specific periods or territories but none so comprehensive. At some point your collection will reach the level when other catalogues are necessary but when you decide to go beyond your local coinage there is no better start. If you really concentrate on some period or country, you will soon outgrow it. If you begin to broaden your numismatic horizons, this is your guide and you may need no other.
This is a book like an old friend. You know his shortcomings (not all were corrected from previous editions, some chapters were made even worse - if you collect Belgian coins don't buy this issue - some coins are missing!), you know he is not really up-to-date (whatever he may claim), you know that he gets more and more forgetful every year, you know he can be terribly obstinate and stick to his mistakes for years. But you reach for him in need because, well, you haven't got a better friend.

A very useful referance book for every coin collector. Every collector MUST have this catalog
Also the CD at the inner page of the back cover was a very nice surprise.
Now I will carry a 25 grams of catalog instead of a 2˝ kilos during my trips.
regards

Very useful catalog. Used, but in very good shape; however, the DVD included was cracked completely into two pieces. In my case that didn't matter, as I wouldn't have used it anyway. Quite happy with the catalog!

Regardless that this is not the most current edition of the Standard Catalog of World Coins - 1901-2000, it was an excellent gift for our grandson, who is getting interested in coin collecting. Good buy!
