Just what I have always wanted! Every coin that I could not find the origin of was found in a matter of minutes. Details, pictures, values, and more. I do not own a coin book that has this much information and I have a lot of them. I can not wait for the next edition to come out.

The way this book is layed out is fantastic from the quick reference guide to the photos of every coin listed so there can be no mix up or chance that you might not have the correct coin. One of the best books on modern world coins I have found to date. If you have any interest at all in world coins this is a book you should have in your book case.

Great reference (13th edition, 2011) for those interested in circulating world coins, 1901 - present! With countless photos, prices by conditions for each date and mint mark, and mintage figures where available, this is a must have reference for those interested in coins minted for circulation. Only drawback to the 13th edition, is that it did not come with a DVD like the 12th edition did. The DVD allows the user to view the entire content of the 12th edition in PDF format, which is great as opposed to having to lug the metropolitan like phone book sized book to coin shows, coin stores, etc. Still hoping that the publisher makes an electronic version of this superb reference available soon!

I bought my first world coin book back in 2000. It did not have a wide variety of countries. This book on the other hand has every country of every world coin that I have. It includes good quality pictures and coin prices based on quality of the coin in question. Also, in the front of the book are pictures of common coins with quick references to the coin's county if it is uncertain of where a particular coin is from and the language is unfamiliar. Awesome tool for any coin collector to have.

The condition is new, it is very complete and well written to find U.S. and International coins. Their pictures and a little about them, as well as some estimated value. I found quite a few old coins and this
is very helpful in knowing what I might have before I go to any coin dealer.
I recommend this book, the delivery was slightly before schedule, and information just what I need.
I recommend this book and dealer.

I had several hundred foreign coins and found everyone of them in the World Coinn Book. It saved me a lot of time and I learned a lot about foreign coins. If you are collecting or thinking of starting to collect any foreign coin, this book is a must have.

this book came with front cover damaged also the quality of the printed information was very poor making it to very difficult to read. Also quality of pictures of coins very bad as I am forced to use the internet if i want to see what the coin should look like as the images are blurry and very poorly printed.

I will defiantly not recommend this book to beginners it is aimed for professionals.
