The Numismatist Rolls Out Retail Price Guide

6/6/2017

The official publication of the ANA, The Numismatist, and The Coin Dealer Newsletter (CDN), have teamed up to provide ANA members a retail pricing tool for collectable U.S. and Early American coinage. Look for the “Collector’s Price Guide” (CPG) in this month’s issue of the magazine (pp 125-32). Moving forward, each monthly supplement offers up-to-date values for a variety of U.S. coin types and denominations on a regular rotation, with early coppers, cents and nickels in June, silver in July, and gold in August.

The “Collector’s Price Guide” is intended as a hobby resource only and should be used in combination with other numismatic references as part of a practical, informed purchasing plan. CDN Publishing is solely responsible for the content of the guide.
