An introductory work of some merit, by virtue of its balanced and detailed content. It should get would-be numismatists off to a good start. Russell has solid credentials; she is a former editor of Coin World and a board member of the American Numismatic Society. She provides a broad-based overview of the history of coinage, production techniques, mints and mintages, art and artistry, rarities and errors, and, especially, preservation. The book will be used by young adults and adults alike, despite its orientation to the former. Public and school libraries not having Scott Travers's The Coin Collector's Survival Manual ( LJ 8/84) should give this favorable consideration. Librarians note: a small packet of foreign coins is attached to the binding.
