Astrid Mitchell, publisher of the new directory of circulating world coins, said:

“This Directory is an indispensable guide to circulating coins, providing all the key information in one place.

“It has often been said that coins don’t change that much, particularly compared with banknotes. But that is no longer the case and, since the last edition was published three years ago, there have been a number of changes – new issues, coins withdrawn, different compositions and designs.

“This Directory is the best way of keeping up with those changes, enabling coins issuers and mints to access all the necessary information in one handy source.”

As an invaluable guide and research tool, the directory is widely used by those involved in the design, production, issue, and management of coins, including central banks and treasury departments worldwide.

The latest edition of circulating world coins, comprising over 200 pages in an A4 format, will be published in October at the Coin Conference and will be available in both printed and downloadable PDF formats.
