The best value and most informative modern UK coin price guide
on 21 December 2013
This is the latest edition of the guide that has been published annually for many years, and grew out of the Check Your Change booklets prevalent in the 1960s. It has had more and more added to it over time, in the form of varieties, good basic information, and realistic values that reflect the ACTUAL prices currently being realised for UK coins.
I've given it 4-stars purely because of the guide's limited scope : it deals with only coins produced in the machine age, i.e. copper from 1797 and silver from 1816. Well illustrated and packed with statistics and information (and now with digital versions), it must rank as the best value guide around. I'd love to see a companion volume going back to Charles II.
