Numismatic Book Review-Whitman Guide to Coin Collecting

Coins | Big Nub Numismatics

The Whitman Guide to Coin Collecting is sometimes referred to as the Golden book, for its golden cover. This book has been updated several times in order to keep up with modern numismatic trends and prices. The author, esteemed Kenneth Bresset gives a broad run down, and overview of this great hobby, and I would recommend strongly for the beginner. It gives you a small taste for each coin book published by Whitman including the red book, blue book, and ANA grading standards. This book also gives information on where to learn more about the hobby, and history of numismatics. Like the Money Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian Museum of American History. It provides stimulating images of coin shows, and stresses the importance of keeping your coins clean, and cared for as well as attending numismatic lectures and doing clubs. Another fast read, and great book from Whitman.

I never met a coin book that I didn't like. Unfortunately I am way behind in my reading.

The Red Book is my favorite plush the books on the separate coins themselves never enjoyed Whitman my opinion.
