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.

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.
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.
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.
