Ever wonder how much that coin bouncing around in your pocket is worth? Do you collect coins engaging in an activity known as numismatics? The library has many sources of information on coins for your use.

Some of the sources in your library are Standard Catalog of World Coins, Official Blackbook Price Guide to United States Coins, The Official Bluebook Handbook for United States Coins, and The United States Early Silver Dollars, 1794-1803. For those interested in the history of coins see David Tripp, Illegal Tender: Gold, Greed and the Mystery of the Lost 1933 Double Eagle and Ted Schwarz, A History of United States Coinage.

Bring those bags of coins into the library and see if you have struck gold! For more information on library sources call 610-543-2113 to talk to a librarian! Sorry ... librarians cannot assist in valuing coins.
