IOLA, Wis. (August 2, 2010) --North American Coins & Prices, the leading three-in-one coin collecting reference, is now available from Krause Publications.
Now in its 20th edition, the popular reference features more than 45,000 individual coin listings organized by country, denomination and date of issue.
"Canada, Mexico and the U.S. always have active coin collecting markets," said KP numismatics editorial director Debbie Bradley. "This year is no exception. With new issues and volatile precious metals prices, there is plenty of new material to consume with this edition of our North American book."
The U.S. section begins with early Colonial issues of the 17th and 18th centuries. Mexico's listings begin with 1701, and Canada's with 1858.
Collector values are given for each coin listed in up to 11 grades of conditions, reflecting both collector market demand and current precious metal prices. More than 3,000 photos, including obverse and reverse images, aid in coin identification. In addition to pricing and identification, the book contains helpful how-to stories with expert coin collecting advice.
