Product Description

About the Author

Chester L. Krause started Krause Publications in 1952 with the first issue of Numismatic News. In 1972, he and Clifford Mishler coauthored Standard Catalog of[registered] World Coins. This hobby standard launched the beginning of book publishing at Krause Publications, sparking the flame that would help create the world's largest hobby and collectibles publisher. Since 1952, Chet has been a steadfast figure in the numismatic world. Clifford Mishler joined the company as a member of the numismatic editorial staff in 1962. He has served on the U.S. government's annual Assay Commission and on the Coins and Medals Advisory Panel of the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission. In 1984, the American Numismatic Association recognized his lifelong dedication to numismatics and presented its highest honor to him, the Farran Zerbe Memorial Award. Employed at Krause Publications since 1975, Colin R. Bruce II oversees production of all numismatic catalogue titles that relate to foreign coins and paper money. He has earned 16 awards from the Numismatic Literary Guild for his work. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Krause & Mishler catalogs of world coins provide a superb wealth of information for coin collectors and the catalog which provides listings for the period 1701 - 1800 is no exception. The 18th century was a period when coins circulated around the world during an era of European expansion and the book reads as a history lesson in how the globe was being explored at the time. The book tells of countries and regions whos names have passed into history, or who no longer issue coins or who tell of kingdoms and princely states.
If you are a coin collector this is an essential piece of work. This reference book contains nearly 18,000 actual size photos of coins and an incredible amount of information on the coinage of every country issued during the 18th century. The coins issued are listed, the mintage for each year and a valuation of the coin according to its condition. If only I had a Guatemalan 8 Escudos coin from 1785 in extra fine condition (worth $25,000!)
This is a magnificent database of information organised in a very easy to use format which means that it takes very little time to look up a particular coin. To have one book that contains pretty much every officially issued coin in the period is a great aid to collectors.

This animal is good for pointing out many coins that may be missed in the smaller magazines and at trade shows. However it is a catalog, about the size of a phone book and with so few advertisers that they are negligible. There are no fancy color pictures just coins and lots of them divided into countries; so many coins that it can make your head spin if you are not searching for a particular theme. The shallow part of the book is the depth of time.
When I write reviews I look for a stumper or two. Well this book passed. I looked up the “Wailbligen 100”. Sure as shoot'n there it was with an explanation and references to Porcelain coins.

As ever the Krause family of standard coin catalogues continue to be essential reading for any even slightly serious coin collector. Their content is quite unparralelled in its fullness, along with their sensible pricing guide. Well worth the investment.

I need a guide so I just do not blindly pay big bucks for cute pictures. There are a lot of good guides and some more specific on particular eras and locations such as Westphalia. But as you do a coin search you are bound to run across something you are not familiar with and need a guide. This guide is a great place to start; it is easy to navigate and gives cursory information on particular locations and times surrounding the coin's production.
Keeping in mind that this is just a guide, there are holes and the coins are not displayed in color. On the other hand the coins shown are in actual size; size is hard to translate form internet pictures.
With all the electronic references today it is nice to have something tactile, static and transportable. This book meet al those needs.

Format: Paperback
This is the standard reference catalogue for world coins and for this edition the listings have been reordered so that they are more intuitively alphabetical. What a challenge it must be to edit such a book... especially with the multitude of modern commemorative coins issued each year. It is inevitable that some mistakes will occur, but I was a little disappointed to find whole series missing or misplaced within some country listings. I have had to refer back to an older edition just to find some coins... it has put me off buying a newer version for a while. For a reference work I think accuracy is important and I hope it has improved in subsequent editions.
