As usual, we spent all of our time in the first quarter of 2015 updating the Standard Catalog of World Coins1901-2000 43rd edition and Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001-Date 10th edition. Also completed in the first quarter was the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money Modern Issues 1961-Present 21st edition. The SCWPM 21st edition was the last KP book longtime editor George Cuhaj worked on for us. Coordinating paper money projects going forward will be new editor Maggie Judkins. Some of you may remember Maggie from her days editing World Coin News.
Other projects completed this spring include: Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money 34th edition, 2016 U.S. Coin Digest 14th edition and 2016 North American Coins & Prices 25th edition. This last catalog had some really nice value revisions and expansions for Canada from contributor Paul Montz. The NAC&P is available for pre-order in July and we are offering a special promotion with an added digital selection of Mexico or Canada. Look for this on our web-sales site, ShopNumismaster.com, in coming weeks.
At the moment we are working on an update to the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1801-1900. This 8th edition will be my primary task during July and into August. Many of you sent in your digital files, and I have been reviewing them, cleaning up and getting data entered and imported. This is the first book we are attempting with nearly exclusive digital updating, and so far it has flowed very nicely. Great work! Congratulations to all who participated!
Coming up this fall, I will be sending out Excel files by email for all those who work on the two annual catalogs, the SCWC 1901-2000 and SCWC 2001-Date. I expect these files to be available for me to run and email during October. In August and September we hope to be adding in many new issues for the expansion of the SCWC 2001-Date, so if you have complete information on new types or comments in general for new issues, please address them to both Maggie and me.
Looking way into 2016, the normal rotation will call for a 7th edition of the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1701-1800. This project too will be completed using Excel spreadsheets for updates and changes. If you have special interest in any specific countries for the 1701-1800 time period, drop me an email and we can discuss plans.
