Overview

Cash In Your Coins is for anyone who's inherited a collection (or hoard) of old coins. How rare are they? What are they worth? Should you sell? Where do you even begin?

Your guide on this journey is Beth Deisher, an award-winning journalist and retired editor of Coin World, the hobby's premier news weekly. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience helping people understand and collect coins and paper currency, Deisher shows you how to identify what you own, how to create and inventory, how to pick out extra-valuable coins, how to value a large estate, "talking the talk" when you go to sell, the effect of the "fiscal cliff" and recent estate- and tax-related legislation, and other important and valuable lessons.

Every coin collector should keep a copy of this book with their collection, to help their loved ones make smart decisions when the time comes to sell.


"With Beth Deisher's guidance you'll avoid costly mistakes and make decisions about your coins with more confidence." -Q. David Bowers, the "Dean of American Numismatics"

Instead of risking your future fortune by blindly accepting the offers of strangers, it's wise to make a less than ten dollar investment in this instant education. In its 228 pages, specialist Beth Deisher (Coin World Almanac; Making the Grade) delineates what you need to know about the coins that you have inherited. Trustworthy and cheap.
