Overview

Between these covers lie the most significant U.S. coins of the modern era-from one-of-a-kind rarities to coins you can find in pocket change, presented as you've never seen them before! In this beautifully illustrated volume, distinguished numismatists Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett take you on a personal guided tour of the most significant U.S. coins of the modern era. From humble Lincoln cents to costly platinum bullion coins, each issue was ranked based on rigorous research to determine which were worthy of becoming one of the 100 Greatest.

This revised and updated second edition features new additions to the list and dramatic, even surprising, changes in ranking. A new appendix shows how coins changed position on the list and explains the reasoning for the most extreme changes. You'll learn the behind-the-scenes stories that illuminate how these particular coins became desirable-and why they illustrate, better than any others, the high point of our nation's coinage. An engaging book for collectors of all levels.
