The Authoritative, Comprehensive Gold Guide for the Novice and the Professional. Simple Format, “What’s It Worth” formula, Systematic, Quick Navigation, Reader Friendly, optimized for eReaders.
This detailed, illustrated guide to gold coins and bars serves those interested in these objects for their trading rather than their numismatic value. It provides a range of information for more than 80 gold coins issued by 20 countries and approximately 20 bullion bars. A brief introduction gives some useful background information about buying and selling such items and discusses other factors that may influence their value. The main section of the book is a country-by-country listing that illustrates and describes each of the coins. This is followed by a short list of bars arranged by commercial firm of issuance. A series of appendixes provides additional listings by characteristics that are of particular interest to traders, such as diameter, thickness, gold content, purity, total weight, and fineness. A short glossary, a list of weights and measures, gold prices from 1972 to 1991, conversion tables, a bibliography, and an index round the book out. Almost all the information of interest on these (and many more) gold coins can be found in the wide assortment of standard coin books that appears in most library collections.
