Hard Cover Edition - Modern Dime Size Silver Coins of the World with Footnotes to History. This book, a many year project to study small coins as miniature engravings of Art and History, was first finished in 1997. Several years later a CD-rom was produced. The author won the Numismatic Literary Guild Best Software Award. Now printed as a 600 page book with over a thousand enlarged scans of the coins from the mid 1800’s to 1970 show coins from around the world - Afghanistan to Yemen. These coins were the money of the people at the time; one would represent a days work, purchase a meal or a night’s entertainment. Kings, Queens and Statesmen are portrayed on dozens of coins, with little biographies of many. More than a numismatic book, this anthology is a fine way to develop a better understanding of money in use during the previous two centuries. This Edition will be a referance you will look at every time you need information on small silver coins of the world.
