A new edition of the Charleton catalog of Canadian Coins (Volume 2) by W. K. Cross has been published.
The fourth edition of Canadian Coins, Volume 2, Collector and Maple Leaf Issues will be released May 31st, 2013, at the Toronto Coin Expo which will be held at the Toronto Reference Library. The new 464-page fourth edition is current to March 2013, with all new Mint issues. This 4-colour catalogue tracks all Mint and maple leaf issues from 1954 to the current releases.
A 16% increase in the page count from 400 in the third edition to 464 in the fourth was necessary to keep up with the more than 150 new issue (2012 and 2013) coins released by the Royal Canadian Mint. In keeping with the new issues over 150 full colour images have been added in the fourth edition.
All prices, specifications, designers’ and engravers’ information has been updated, affording the collector the opportunity to keep fully abreast of the current trend in NCLT and maple leaf issues.
Pricing tables have been established for the 5-cent through 50-cent proof sterling silver coins. Previously, they were listed in Volume One pricing tables, but due to their different composition (neither nickel nor multiply plated steel) they are distinct varieties in their own right and should not be grouped with CLT coinage.
A new section has been introduced on the Commemorative Canadian Coin, Token, or Medal Sets sold at the major coins shows held in Germany, Canada, the USA, and China. These sets are interesting from the standpoint that they contain a special medallion domiciled to the coin show at which they were introduced.
The fourth edition is a definite must for the collector tracking mint and bullion issues. Canadian Coins, Volume Two, Collector and Maple Leaf Issues can be purchased at the Toronto Coin Expo prior to its worldwide release on May 31 and June 1.
