4.0 out of 5 stars Coin Collecting Primer! 29 Jan 2014
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Craig Cooper's HOBBY OF KINGS, COIN COLLECTING is an informative, nicely-illustrated guide to numismatics. Written by an acknowledged expert, it will be especially useful for those just starting coin collections.

After an introductory chapter on US/UK/Canadian/Australian coins, Cooper takes the reader through the mechanics of coin collecting with chapters on starting a collection, condition, mint marks, gold coins, care/cleaning of coins, buying/selling coins, proof/uncirculated mint sets, etc. I especially enjoyed the 'Starting a Coin Collection' chapter. The largest section in the book, it provides interesting details on various coins that might end up in one's collection such as the Flying Eagle Cent, 1943 Copper Cent, Liberty Head Nickel, Seated Liberty Silver Dollar, Presidential Dollars, etc.

The text is illustrated with many b&w and color photographs. The book lacks an index, which accounts for my 4-star rating.

Whether you're a beginning coin collector or experienced numismatist, HOBBY OF KINGS, COIN COLLECTING will have something of interest for you. Recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Color Coin book. 26 Dec 2012

Verified Purchase
I am not a new coin collector, I have always collected a wheat cents and had a few silver dollars but wanted to get into it more, the Hobby of Kings book is a huge help. It has color pictures of nearly every coin made, the part I like the best if the grade pictures, starting with grade 1 it goes up to grade MS69 showing you the difference so you can grade coins I find this section handy when I buy coins on line or go to a coin show. The book is smaller than I thought but handy to put in a pocket.
