Retired Coin World Editor Beth Deisher kindly submitted these notes in response to my question last week about the Worldwide Coins magazine. Thank you!
WorldWide Coins was one of four newsstand magazines published by Amos Press Inc. during the first decade of the 21st century.
The first of the newsstand magazines was Coin Values. Beth Deisher was founding editor and Eric Martin later served as editor. Published monthly, it was launched in December 2003. Coin World subscribers received an edition with a cover different from the newsstand edition, but the interior contents were identical. The magazine featured values of U.S. coins and included feature articles as well as the popular column,
Making the Grade, later published in book form. Coin Values was published monthly as a stand-alone magazine through February 2011 and was then incorporated into the monthly Coin World magazine.
Paper Money Values, offering values of U.S. federal paper money, premiered with a Winter 2005 issue and was issued quarterly during 2006. During 2007, 2008, and 2009 it was issued bimonthly. Three issues were published as a stand-alone magazine during 2010. Edited by Michele Orzano, content included features about U.S. and world paper money as well as new issues. Editorial content was incorporated into the large monthly Coin World magazine beginning with the June 2010 issue.
WorldWide Coins was published by bimonthly. Beth Deisher was founding editor and Andrew Perala was managing editor. Features, columns, new issues, and a world coins auction calendar were included in the editorial content. Trends of Mexican, Canadian, and British coins were published in the magazine on a rotating basis. The first issue was published in November 2007. Six issues each were published in 2008 and 2009. The last stand-alone issue was published in January 2010. Beginning with the April 10, 2010, issue the editorial content transitioned as World Coins to the larger Coin World monthly magazine.
Presidential Dollars, edited by Beth Deisher, premiered in 2007 as the new series of small dollar coins was issued for circulation. Lack of public acceptance led the U.S. Mint to halt circulation production and to begin marketing Presidential dollars as collector coins. Only one issue of Presidential Dollars (Vol. 1, Issue 1) was ever published.
