This extensive catalogue is an annually updated, illustrated, serial publication focusing on coin collecting, from an established firm that deals with coins, banknotes and antiquities. It is aimed at the coin trade and collectors and intends to be more of an encylopaedia than a catalogue. The material is split into hammered and milled sections and presented in denomination order; within each denomination, coins are listed by monarch. "Collecting hints" on the availability of grades and conditions are offered for all series, and a new numbering system is used, enabling instant identification of the issuing monarch and the denomination of the coin. With over 50,000 prices, the 1999 edition incorporates a range of features to help make the material easier to locate. Also included are a "Numismatic Glossary", a detailed, illustrated listing of mintmarks of hammered coins, mintage figures, an index of designers and engravers for milled coins, and a section of "Numismatic Documents and Paraphernalia". All the coin prices have been reviewed, and changes made in the light of market alterations. The work is enhanced with maps, indexes, a bibliography, photographs, and line drawings.
