2011, 46th Edition
This book is illustrated superbly with very clear colour pictures on
good quality paper. It is made well and looks like it will stand up to
the wear and tear of regular reference well.
This years addition has a couple of changes. The most notable
being, that coins are now listed by denomination in sequence,
starting with the lowest value and processing through to the highest.
Other changes are the addition of adverts from coin dealers and
auction houses, also a major re-write of the Decimal section.
