4.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Good price. One of the best I've seen Feb. 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my husband. He loves it. Very informative. Also the price was great. These books are sometimes hard to find in book stores. Most are by special order only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Feb. 10 2013
By Franck
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Même s'il existe déjà quelques références en la matières pour les pièces canadiennes, je dois avouer que j'ai particulièrement apprécié la présentation offerte dans ce livre. Ça facilité d'emploi pour identifier certains jetons est formidable. Pas du tout en reste par rapport aux différents livres de Charlton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Equivalent to the RED BOOK, but needs some tweaking to be five stars. Feb. 10 2013
By P. Eisenman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Finally, an equivalent to the The Official Red Book: A Guide Book of U.S. Coins 2013 (Guide Book of United States Coins) for Canadian coins.

While it does NOT have all the nit-picky disection of all the variants you'll find the in Canadian Coins, Vol 1 - Numismatic Issues, 67th Ed (Charlton's Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins), the prices/valuations are much more realistic in THIS Whitman book. I found the valuations in the Charlton book, which are based on slabbed, graded coins, simply ridiculous (nothing is worth LESS than $5!). So, for a general idea of what your coins are worth retail (not what you can sell them for), this book is superior. Yes, your George V, 1920 VG small cent is really only worth 25c today and not the $10 in the Charlton book!

Super high quality paper and excellent, life size photography. Lots of useful information about Canadian coins in general and, of course, grading standards provided. Includes New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland issues as well as PROVINCE OF CANADA and colonial issues.

Flaws??? There are a few. THIS BOOK DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY INFORMATION ON COLLECTOR COINAGE from the RCM. There is a section on bullion coins and collector editions of the bullion Maple Leafs. Commemoratives which were released into circulation are included. The Montreal Olympic silver commemoratives from the early 70s are present, but NO OTHER COLLECTOR COINS. Given the myriad produced by the RCM, perhaps a second volume would be in order as opposed to enlarging this book. But, if you are looking for current values on such coins, you'll need to get either the 2013 Standard Catalog of World Coins - 1901-2000 or 2013 Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001 to Date (Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001-Date) or both.

Also, the listing of Uncirculated, Proof and Speciman type sets seems to be incomplete as there are some that, quite simply, aren't here! You can find them listed in the Standard Catalogs, but not in this volume.

In short, it's a good FOUR STAR effort for the First Edition. With a few bits of tweaking, I'm sure the Second Edition will rise to the standards marked by Whitman's RED BOOK for United States Coins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief Review of Canadian Coinage Oct. 1 2012
By Wallace McClymont - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book not only contains all of the coins of Canada, but also tokens and pre coinage items. There is also brief information about each of Britain's monarchs which is most enlightning. I purchased this book and the Red and Blue books of American Coinage through Amazon.
Regards,
Wallace McClymont

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure trove of information.....one of the best coin books I've ever seen May 19 2012
By WoodyWW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was unsure of whether to buy this, but the depth, & thoroughness of this book is stunning. The sections on Colonial & Provincial coinage, coins of all the different provinces, & tokens--those chapters alone make this book well worth it. The level of detail, both in the descriptions, & the beautiful full-color pics is almost mind boggling. For instance, p.78-80 are devoted to one particular shipping token, with probably 2 dozen pics. of minute variations.

20th century coins are covered equally thoroughly, including for instance mintages for gold & silver Maple Leaf bullion coins. Also, melt values are listed for various 20th century silver coins made for circulation, at different silver prices from $25 to $80. (The authors may be a bit optimistic about silver prices perhaps?).

From the most serious collector of colonial coins--to someone just putting away some silver Maple Leafs--& everything in between, this book is terrific. And I've only mentioned a tiny fraction of what this book covers....
