The Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes 16th edition, by Greg McDonald

December 19, 2008

Collectors have been waiting anxiously for the newly released sixteenth edition of the 2009 pocket guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes. It's author Greg McDonald has been working tirelessly to have the new edition out to it's readers before Christmas 2008. It is avaliable now from your nearest numismatic supplier or bookshop in paperback for $29.95. The "bible" of Australian numismatics or "Macca's" as it is affectionately termed has been lovingly updated annually by Greg since 1993.

The Macca's guide contains updated pricing information for Proclamation and Colonial coins, Gold coins, Australian pre-decimal and decimal coins, Royal Australian Mint and The Perth Mint issues, Internment camp tokens and pre-decimal and decimal banknotes. It contains information on grading, advice on buying and selling and an index of numismatic terms. There are also many advertisements from dealers which is a valuable asset when looking to sell coins or finding who to contact to obtain your next purchase.

The new book is smaller than the previous issue, around 40 pages lighter. This is difficult to fathom though as the new book contains many new issues, extra information and items previously overlooked from the pocketbook.

The 2009 Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes by Greg McDonald -sixteenth edition is a must have for the serious collector so get out there and hassle your dealer or bookshop for a copy today!
