world coin values at a glance with this great bookWorld coin values is something that changes on such a regular basis that it’s hard to keep up with the latest coin values. As a metal detectorist and coin collector, I am always interested in the value of coins in general and the metal detecting coin finds made with my Minelab Explorer XS. I don’t normally sell any of my finds but it’s good to know the possible value and any information about the coins I find while metal detecting and the coins I collect.

I am sure there are many places that you could research the value of world coins and coins in general for that matter. For me, I find the Standard Catalog of World Coins a great resource, both for general information and world coin values. A book for coin collectors, dealers and metal detectorists.
