Reading material for you to find out more about coins.

I Have read or used the following books about coins and found them to be of great benefit in the pursuit of the coin, be it origin, date, mintage figures, varieties or just how it came to be here.

>>Coin and Banknote Magazine:<<

A monthly publication from Australia which deals with most aspects of coins and banknotes, as well as some very informative articles on coin fairs and overseas coins as well as retail outlets for the purchase of coins and associated materials.

>>Krause Mishler catalogue of world coins:<<

In my opinion definitely the last word in coin identification and valuation, all types of coins are represented here with illustrations and descriptions.

Mint symbols and marks from all over the world are mentioned, also standard international numerical systems and many retail outlets for the purchase of coins mostly in the United States of America.
