This book is a primer for those interested in buying or selling gold coins and bars. It lists the total weight, gold content, diameter, fineness, purity and mintage period of most of the U.S. gold coins, including the current mint offerings, as well as a number of popular international gold coins. Knowing the precise weight of a coin, and weighing it, is a good check against counterfeit ones.
Included are specifics on a number of U.S-issued gold commemorative coins, and gold bars and coins of notable private purveyors such as Credit Suisse, Engelhard and Johnson Matthey.
This book is a 1992 edition, and as such may be of interest to collectors of period numismatic books.
