"Coins of Canada 2004" book. Canadian Prices?
I have the 2004 edition of "Coins of Canada" by J.A. Haby and R.C. Willey. Now, this may seem like a silly question, but are the prices listed in this book in US or Canadian dollars? I assume that they must be in Canadian dollars, since they are much higher than my 2004 (1801-1900 Version) Standard Catalogue of World Coins (Krause/Mishler). But, I cannot find this point made anywhere in the book.
However, currency differences alone do not account for the higher prices in this book, so is it what is the deal with these two books? For instance, a VG 1900 Newfoundland 50 cent piece in Krause/Mishler is listed as $5 while it is $15 in the "Coins of Canada" book. There are other less extreme examples, but they coins all seem higher then what currency values would create.
The reason for the large gap in trend price, there was a jump in the trends for most Canadian coins in 2003 in which the Coins of Canada has included in their book. The prices in the book are in Canadian funds. I hope this info has helped you Hal.
There are even more up to date prices published in the trends section of the Canadian Coin News newspaper. These take into account prices realized at recent major shows and auctions. CCN comes out every 2 weeks. If you have any specific price questions I would be glad to help you.
Thanks for the replies. Yes, that helps a lot. Is the Canadian Coin News newspaper like the Greysheet, or are they retail prices instead of wholesale prices?
I'm not familiar with the Greysheet but I have always assumed that CCN trends reflected retail prices.
