Krause Publications has introduced a comprehensive multimedia coin collecting package designed to appeal to collectors of all ages: Foundations of Coin Collecting.
Available exclusively at www.barnesandnoble.com and www.shopnumismaster.com, Foundations of Coin Collecting incorporates a variety of products from KP’s numismatic line, including a book, e-book, coin folder, magazine subscription and online subscription. Included in the package are:
Warman’s U.S. Coin Collecting. This book from expert Alan Herbert provides a solid foundation for any collector, with topics ranging from “Where to Start” and “Handling Your Coins” to “Your Collection and the Law” and “Sellers Beware.” It covers all U.S. coin denominations.
Strike It Rich With Pocket Change. The U.S. Mint’s mistakes could mean big money. This e-book from noted error coin experts Ken Potter and Brian Allen helps collectors find and determine the value of error and variety coins.
Foundations of Coin Collecting Folder. The U.S. Mint has released many noteworthy coins over the past 100 years, and many can still be found in circulation. This folder offers collectors spaces to collect and store some of the most popular coins released in recent years, as well as other more difficult-to-find coins from decades ago.
Coins magazine. Since its launch in 1955, Coins has been a hobby leader in providing collectors with important and timely information key to making wise decisions on what to collect and how to collect. Edited by award-winning author Bob Van Ryzin, this monthly publication provides readers with in-depth features on interesting coins, market analysis and up-to-date pricing on U.S. coins.
NumisMaster. Located at www.numismaster.com, NumisMaster opens Krause Publications’ massive coin and paper money database to collectors and allows them to select and sort the information to fit their individual collecting interests.
The database comprises the coin images, descriptions and pricing information for every book Krause Publications has published in the Standard Catalog line for nearly 40 years, and encompasses nearly 1.2 million coin values. A portfolio feature allows collectors to track their collections’ value in real time, as prices are updated daily.
