IOLA, Wis. (July 29, 2010) -- The fifth edition of the Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001-Date is now available from Krause Publications.
Valuable coin data, gathered by a panel of more than 200 coin experts worldwide, fill the pages of this new edition, which contains nearly 100 more pages than the previous edition.
"In putting together this book we scoured mint websites, live auction sites, and special new issue sales sites," said market analyst Tom Michael. "That's why this edition is 20 percent larger than the last one!"
Hundreds of new world mint issues, including the ultra-popular area of bullion coins, are represented in authoritative Standard Catalog fashion, complete with key coin specifications, background about each country's monetary history, and 6,000 actual-size coin illustrations. The reference includes coverage of collector coins, sets, trial strikes, pieforts and patterns.
