Standard Catalog of Wolrd Coins 37th edition
After months of work from hundreds of contributors and staff we are finally nearing the end of our updating of the 1901-2000 Standard Catalog of World Coins listings. The book will be completely in the hands of our designer Sandi Morrison, within a few weeks and should be sent to the printer by the end of March. Copies of the new 37th edition should be available in the market by June 2009. When I have a review copy in hand, I'll post the news! In the meantime however, I can show you this sneak-peak of the cover design, which sports a color I don't recall having ever seen on an SCWC series book before now.
On another subject entirely, if you are looking for bargains you may want to take a look at all the new DVD'sKP has produced. There are currently about 9 titles available for purchase. You won't find these on the KP Books website, as they are only being offered through our Numismatic News websiteon the F+W Magazine Store at present. Prices are pretty good on the DVDs, for instance, the 1601-1700 Standard Catalog of World Coins DVDretails for $44.99 and is currently on sale for $34.99. The printed book for 1601-1700 SCWC, which is large and heavy, carries a suggested retail of $80.00, so the DVD offers a substantial savings, if you have a DVD drive and can work off your laptop or desktop PC or Mac. The same is true of the 1901-2000 Standard Catalog of World Coins 37th editon DVD, which retails for $44.99, but currently on sale for $34.99. The printed copy of the SCWC 37th carries a suggested retail price of $60.00, so a cheaper DVD is a good option if you like working on a computer screen.
