Recommended and Standard Reference Works for Coins

Buy the book before you buy the coin. This saying has been in use for a long time now and refers to the fact that collectors should be knowledgeable about the pieces they acquire. The knowledge encompasses not only how much a coin could be worth but also the history of it, the circumstances of it's minting, etc. These factors give the collector a much broader appreciation for the pieces in a collection.

The following is a list of books that are excellent references. I have a majority of these and use them quite frequently when cataloging or looking for pieces to buy. Several of them are the standard reference for the particular area of interest, and others are simply very good to have in addition.

  United States of America

  Coins of England, Great Britain, United Kingdom   World Coins   Ancient Coins (General)   Ancient Coins (Roman)   Byzantine Coins   Coins of the Crusader States   Chinese Coins   German Coins   Mexican Coins   Coins of Russia and the Soviet Union
