This is an excellent book for the novice/beginner coin collector. Am sure it will also be beneficial to the more knowledgeable collectors, but i can only review it as a newbie.

As there is no 'Look Inside' feature the contents are as follows
Foreward
60 Glorious Years
Museum archive
Monarchs of England
View of the Bay .....................................(about buying off Ebay)
Dates on coins
Glossary of coin terms .............................(very useful
Mintmarks of the World
Coin inscriptions
Glossary of abbreviations of metallic composition
Care of coins .....................................(very useful)
Cleaning of years ..................................(very useful)
Celtic coinage of Britain
Collecting Ancient coins
Introducing hammered coinage
Coin grading
Price Guide .........(the main part)...(colour coded pages for ease of use)
Directory
Treasure and the Law
Index to Advertisers

There is some adverts in the book (and some plugging), but this was also useful as i learnt where and when some local coin fairs were to be held.

Am pleased with this book and can recommend it.

This is a great book for those who collect coins. It has all British coins, even the Olympic 50ps and tells you the value of the coins and is very detailed aswell.

I haven't been into collecting coins for long and was undecided to what book I should purchase to look up the coins I have and to look for the new ones. I picked this one because all the reviews were good. It is a very helpful book, I do find it hard to find some coins and it would be more helpful if all the coins they mention have pictures so I can check I am looking at the correct one. I would definitely buy this again.

This book is excellent for the valuation of individual, standard issue coins. However, I have found that the section dealing with collections and special editions/collections seems to have some gaps. Not sure if that is because some of these may have been released by other than The Royal Mint. I think that i was probably expecting a more comprehensive list.

I found the book a good source of info I have the 2011, 2012 and now 2013
There are some inaccuracy’s regarding coins valuations some precious
Metal coins are listed the same in all 3 volumes despite the increase in
That metals value over the years it is good to have one of these but I see
Little point in buying one every year.

The book is easy to read, everything is in a logical order and appears to give representative valuations. Anyone must bear in mind,say, gold and silver prices, but it is a great resource and I consult it several times a day.
