New Books, New DVD References

New Catalogs and DVDs From Krause Publications

Two new KP catalogs arrived back from the printers recently. The Standard Catalog of World Paper Money - Modern Issues - 1961-Present, 14th edition, edited by friend and fellow blogger George Cuhaj hit my desk earlier this week. It features fully updated pricing, better quality images, a nice color section, some simplification in arrangement, ie. South Korea is now under "S", and for the first time ever the book includes a full DVD version of this product! Throw this disc in the DVD drive of your computer and you can have the complete contents of this catalog on your screen. The catalog with DVD included runs $55.00 and is currently available at, while a separate DVD only version will be released June 8th for $44.95.

Also back from the printers this week is the 7th edition of the U.S. Coin Digest. This catalog covers most everything in U.S. coinage, with chapters on history, manufacture, grading, varieties and errors, Territorial Gold, Hawaii, Philippines and Puerto Rico, and more. This catalog offers color images of most U.S. coin types in a lay flat, hard cover, spiral binding. In addition, this book too includes a DVD of the full contents, which you can run on a PC or Mac which has a DVD drive, using Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later version. At a cover price of $16.99 this presents an extremely good value for collectors of U.S. coinage, or those considering entering the hobby at any level. The DVD for U.S. Coin Digest is also available through our magazine division at a price of $9.99. For details check Numismatic News.
