Coins of England and the United Kingdom, published by Spink,
remains the main reference work in its field, featuring every major
coin type from Celtic to the present day with market values for every
coin type listed.
The two-volume set totals 792 pages with color illustrations
throughout. Many hobbyists consider it an essential guide for
beginners, serious numismatists and anyone interested in British coinage.
Another botched release from the United States
Mint: Inside Coin World:
The release of the Congratulations set adds to the narrative that
the U.S. Mint needs to overhaul its approach to limited-edition releases.
As with every new edition, all sections of the catalog were checked
by specialists at Spink and the prices of the coins were updated to
reflect current market conditions, offering valuations for up to three
grades in British pounds.
The catalog’s reference numbers are recognized worldwide and used by
leading auction houses and dealers.
The Coin and Currency Institute has the books available for $48.50
per set, with $5.75 postage and handling per set. To order the books,
