Only Q. David Bowers, the “Dean of American Numismatics,” could have produced a book as comprehensive and authoritative as the first edition of the Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins. Now, in the second edition, Bowers and his panel of specialists in the field add newly discovered coins, bring fresh historical research to the text, and update hundreds of listings with new information, rarity figures, pricing, and images. This fully revised and updated edition remains the definitive reference on colonial and early American coins, tokens, and related issues.
