Gold Catalog in Progress
August 25, 2009

Swamped in Gold

Having returned from a short family vacation in South Dakota where we visited the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, a Minuteman Missle silo, Custer State Park and Wall Drug, plus drove the Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road - I am now back to working on a 6th edition of the Standard Catalog of World Gold Coins. A little over half of the price changes have been made already. These can be seen on our NumisMaster website. The rest should be entered over the next few weeks, so by mid-fall all gold coinage in NumisMaster will have been revised and the new book should be on sale before Christmas.

At the same time we are working on a 6th edition for the Standard Catalog of World Coins 19th Century. Most of the price changes have already been entered for this book and are currently available on NumisMaster. The books will be printed later this fall and should also be on sale in time for the Holidays.

New on the market right now is the 19th edition 2010 North American Coins & Prices, which covers the United States, Canada and Mexico. Get your copy at
