With the advent of online coin sales and the flood of counterfeit coins from China, coin collectors are increasingly wary about the authenticity of coins. The best way to know whether or not a coin is genuine is to understand what a genuine coin looks like. And a picture is worth a thousand words, which is what makes this book a must-have. This visual guide to U.S. coins shows collectors what sets a genuine coin apart from a fake, so they can have confidence when they buy coins. It includes: hundreds of impressive images highlighting key areas of genuine coins; details of coin varieties; explanations of what sets a genuine coin apart from a fake; details about coin engravers and artists; meanings behind the images on the coins; and, glossary of numismatic terms.
