    It is fairly difficult to welcome a new edition of World Coins Catalog 1901-2000 with great expectations. One can assume that by 2010 the editors made sure that their work is complete (actually, it isn’t – one 1 pound coin from Cyprus issued in 2000 is still missing although two other 1 pound coins from the same year were added, copper 3000 bolivares from 1999 from Venezuela is missing still although silver 6000 bolivares coin issued also to commemorate the Maracay Mint is included etc etc) so the new volume becomes interesting only for those who are interested in recent changes of prices i.e. dealers and investors. They will find in the volume some changes and revaluations (Poland is going up – not much of a surprise as a coin boom in this country has continued for over a decade now, Great Britain is going down – the changes are caused rather by the decreasing value of the pound rather then by a general loss of interest in British coins) but not really that much to justify the purchase of another issue.
    For those who already have the 2010 issue there is an additional reason why they should reconsider replacing it with the 2011 issue – there is no CD with the text of the catalog in .pdf files. In other words – if you have 2010 issue, think twice before buying the new one. If you don’t have the catalog at all (if you collect coins, you really should) or you old copy is falling apart with age, look around first – maybe you can find the 2010 issue – it will be much cheaper now and the CD really does come handy if you travel with your laptop.

    I was amazed to note that the coin weights and actual silver weights for coins from many countries were incorrect in this catalog. I have no idea what happened, but it needs to be fixed. In some cases, they appear to have truncated the coin weight in grams and calculated the silver weight based on the incorrect coin weight. In other cases, it looks like simply wrong information. As an example, KM-309, 311 and 318 all had actual silver weights of .0289 oz in the 2009 edition and now they are .0289, .0289 and .0278. On the nezt page, the weights of KM-310, 312 and 319 were all .0736 in 2009 and they are now .0736, .0718 and .0766. You may not care about the Netherlands East Indies, but check out Canada where there are also multiple errors. I haven’t looked the gold coins, but I wonder if errors might also exist there.
