Hello everyone!

I just ordered a coin catalogue today and thought I am surely not the only one still getting physical coin books. So I though of asking here which of you can't resist getting some physical paper books like myself (8

Here is my very modest "library"


It's a mix of catalogues and books, very skewed towards what I collect most, which is Portuguese coins. There is one more that isn't there because it doesn't quite fit and it's printed by me so it doesn't look as neat. It's about hispano-islamic coins!

So I ask you, what coins books do you have? How many more would you get if given the chance? :D


P.S.: Don't even get me started on digital books, at the moment I have 200+ books, catalogues and articles on my folder, and it keeps increasing. I basically hoard those lol
I have the Krause books for 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. They are technically my libraries, but I have been renewing them every two weeks for a couple of years now and nobody has asked for them back (8

the pictures maybe half year olds, now I have a little bit more :)
Nice books "bennycunha67" & "krezga"

I'm sorry that I don't have any photos but I do have two of Krause's SCWPM which though trashed by a lot of collectors & the banknote book/Greysheet has been indispensable for me. IMO: the SCWPM has been attacked for economic gain by the folks at the banknote book & Greysheet (who want collectors to subscribe).

The other catalogue (a must) for me is my 2019 Charlton (below).

I'm sorry, these are not coin books per se but they're related to the numismatic hobby so I'd thought I'd just add this b/c the info from this book (& other hard copied reference books) is far more in depth than anything I've seen online. I'm sure the coin books are similar.

While it is true that in this past year alone the info has been dated the moment that these catalogues were published, the fact is the hobby typically moves at a snail's pace. The only reason this past year was a bit different was due to the pandemic. When the dust settles I'm sure that the diehard collectors will get back into the books (if they're still in the hobby).

this must be most of my Numismatic related books.
recently there are some I am after but waiting to find them in decent quality and price.
Numismatic books are always great to have.

2 good cheap ones for my British coins. Both by Coin Publications

This one, which is a British photograde and one about the basic types of British coins.

I also have a Greg McDonald 2009 Guidebook for Australian coins
NZ Bertrand catalogues - 2021 and 2018
Several Historic ones from NZ and issues of Coin and Medal Magazine from 1965 to 2021
1980 Seaby Catalogue
Some catalogues
NZ Tradesmen's tokens catalogue.

My only catalogue, which I bought in 2018. Not much information exists out there regarding Hong Kong's currency so it's a nice one to have. It also lists all dates, varieties and market values of all coins and banknotes. Although it says "Latest Edition" on the cover it's actually as of 2013. But since my cutoff is generally 2002 for banknotes and 1992 for coins I need not worry too much about it. It's perfect for the purpose it serves.

I regularly write, jot down prices or make annotations on the pages for reference when I go shopping.
"Life is all about being too wrapped up in the now to care about the future. When the future becomes the past, you start to regret what you've done."
The books I have are mainly cheaper old editions which are just as good with information.

Spink 2009
Seaby Coins of Scotland & Ireland (green edition)
Scottish Coins - Nicholas Holmes
Scottish Coins - Donald Bateson
Glasgow Market Tallies - Andrew MacMillan et al
Scottish Transport Tokens - Ronnie Breingan
Atwood-Coffee Catalogue - 6th edition

Mainly about stuff I'm interested in. Always better to have a hard copy than a website.
Some of my books, I would like some arab coin catalog, but unfortunelly just in PDF until now.


Hello forum,

I have about 10 or so coin and banknote "books" remaining and dozens of Auction catalogs (most of them I received free for bidding in the respective auction).

A few of the books are actually from the 50s from my father.

I gave most of my agglomeration to a friend, who is actually re-assembling a numismatic library which he had been working on for decades until it was stolen.

Concerning books I am searching for; Sears 1st and 2nd volume of ancient coins.

It is remotely expensive if you ask me, for a book.

Some more of my books


Reference books and catalogues, the Australian, British collectors and 2018 NZ catalogue are check lists, the 1980 Seaby I brought 2nd hand in my childhood collecting phase in early 90s. It is well loved.


Better books, Tokens and NZ Predecimal Historical volume, other 2 are more general.


Historical and Modern catalogues


These date from my childhood and early adulthood, the 1997 I brought new when I was 21 (I collected between 1993 and 2001). The 1987 was a gift as a child when I got my 1st halfcrown. This company was part of the whole 1980s collector bubble and went belly up, although the authors and catalogue detail survived over different names to evolve into the Bertrands in the top picture.

Basically my books reflect my interest mostly in Kiwi, British and Australian coins.

​If you or anyone else wants access to my pdfs just shoot me a DM! They're a bit too many to share at once but maybe I can compile a list and organise it neatly and show the list so people know if anything is of interest! I won't give it out publicly tho but DMs are always open!

​That is one of the few that is missing! I've found some spanish sellers selling it but the shipping is more than the book so it's on hold for now :°

​Great collection
One of my friends gave me a great book for free, right up my alley

"British coin designers from Offa to Elizabeth", by Howard Linecar, its from 1977 but has everything I need. I can learn about Pistrucci, Kruger Grey, the Wyon family, the Roettiers, Eloi Mestrel and many more (If you collect British coins, you will know who those people are!).

Nice. I love the designs by the Wyon family.
I own all these (and others), and created the pages for them >

I adore this design. I'm just starting to collect books for coins and for me this process is incredibly interesting and useful. In addition, I am studying in college and plan to go to university. At https://writix.co.uk/personal-statement-help I plan to get help writing a personal statement to help me with my entry.
