Book Department

Welcome to the Book Department. These are some of my favorite books on coins, medals, tokens, ancients, errors, paper money, auction catalogues and odd and curious money. Unfortunately, most of them are now out of print.

These books are necessary reading for the library of every serious collector. Consider them your guide to more fully understand and enjoy your collection.

All prices are in Canadian Dollars.
