The publisher and editor of and Mint Error News Magazine

The United States Mint produces billions of coins each year. But, on occasion, a coin escapes the Mint that was never intended for general circulation. These most unusual coins, called mint errors, can fetch tens of thousands of dollars from dealers or collectors in the numismatic market.

For anyone interested in learning more about these uncanny mint-made mistakes, World's Greatest Mint Errors is an enjoyable resource packed full of some of the most dramatic, rare and extraordinary mint errors and die trials ever assembled in one publication.

Hundreds of spectacular mint errors are pictured. Each error coin photo is presented in full color, and enlarged to enhance the smallest details. Some of the error coins featured in this book have never been seen by the public before, and each is described in great detail as to the type of error, the assigned grade, rarity and estimated value.

Also included at the end of most chapters are extensive price charts. This pricing was compiled by leading mint error dealers from within the professional numismatic community and will serve the reader well as a useful guide to mint errors and die trial values.

The information found within these pages will bring anyone interested in mint errors up to date with the latest information on new discoveries, new types of errors and a collection of some of the most dramatic, unique and spectacular mint errors and die trials from the United States and around the world.

    Informative and Well Presented

    The photos and layout of this book are supperb. I purchased it as a gift for a avid coin collector. He was impressed. The quality of the photos is better than any I've seen among other coin books. The price was a bit high.
