The Complete Guide To Collecting Composer Coins
By R. Kevin Paul
List Price: $29.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
I am always excited to find a new work that combines two of my passions, classical music and numismatics. R. Kevin Paul (with Alan
Glasser) has produced a comprehensive guide to music related world coins, featuring 122 composers from 62 different countries.
The book is organized in four categories, sorted by composer last name, country, year, and metal type. The composer section also
includes an image of the composer, as well as a brief summary of their compositions by genre. This guide is a clear, definitive book on
this often overlooked collecting area which interests many in our hobby today. It also comes at a time when collecting these coins in most
metal types is still affordable, and an attractive introduction to numismatics for classical music lovers everywhere. I heartily recommend
There is also an interactive website that gives current updates on the collecting of composer coins. The book is available online at
