[Dennis Tucker forwarded this press release for the latest
numismatic book from Whitman Publishing.  -Editor]

Whitman Publishing announces the release of A Guide Book of
U.S. Commemorative Coins, the tenth entry in its Bowers Series
of numismatic titles, available in early 2008. The book
continues in the tradition of the Guide Book of Morgan Silver
Dollars and other best-selling “Official Red Book” guides.
The 288-page full-color volume will be available in March,
online and in bookstores nationwide.

Every commemorative coin from 1892 to date is illustrated
in full color. Mintages, specifications, market values in
multiple grades, and certified and surviving field populations
add to the book’s reference value.

“Q. David Bowers is a recognized expert on America’s
commemorative coinage,” said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker.
“His new book brings history to life by connecting these
coins to the people, places, and events they honored, and
to the artists, promoters, and politicians who brought them
from raw concept to finished coin.”

The book explains how to build a collection of commemoratives,
determining authenticity, analyzing strike and eye appeal,
being a smart buyer, realities of the marketplace, comparative
rarities, Full Details, certification, establishing fair market
prices, and more.

A Guide Book of U.S. Commemorative Coins will be available
online at whitmanbooks.com, and from hobby retailers,
booksellers, and coin dealers nationwide.
