Whitman Publishing announces the release of the new Check List and Record Book of United States and Canadian Coins, a resource to help collectors keep track of their coins. The 272-page perfectbound book debuts June 30, 2015, and will be available from booksellers and hobby shops nationwide. In the meantime it can be preordered online, including at www.Whitman.com, for $9.95.
The Check List and Record Book of United States and Canadian Coins is a convenient way to keep track of a coin collection. Its 6 x 9–inch size packs a large amount information into a handy resource that can be carried in a pocket or bag, or stored in a safe deposit box. Collectors take the book to coin shows and shops while they’re on the hunt for new numismatic acquisitions, checking each box as they add a coin to their collections or upgrade to a better specimen. The book also has room to write notes on when and where various coins were bought, their grades,
pricing, and any other information the collector wants to record.
The Check List and Record Book features actual-size illustrations of each coin type, complete mintage records for circulation-strike and Proof coins, and coin-by-coin listings of every date and mint. The coins covered include U.S. half cents through gold double eagles, 1790s to date; classic and modern commemorative coins; government-issued commemorative sets; Proof sets and Mint sets; Canadian coins from the 1850s to date; and silver, gold, and platinum bullion coins. There are sections to keep track of collections of Hard Times tokens; Civil War tokens; other tokens and medals; Hawaiian coins; Puerto Rican coins; coins struck for the Philippines under U.S. sovereignty; misstrikes and error coins; and American Arts gold medallions. The Canadian chapters cover large cents; small cents; five-cent pieces; silver and modern coins; commemorative issues; dollar coins; and bullion pieces.
“Keeping an accurate inventory of your coins is one of the most important things you can do as a collector,” says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “Not only does it help you organize and build a better collection, it can also be useful for tax and insurance purposes, and as a valuable record for your children and grandchildren to learn about your collection.”
The new Check List and Record Book covers coins and coin sets up through 2015, with extra space to keep track of later coins.
