I don't think there is a good one-way-book where you get everything, but there are lots of free online resources like wildwind and OCRE. I use them all the time.
Thanks for giving me such good advice
Greek Coin Types by Richard Plant is the only single-volume book about Greek coins that I can think of, but I find it difficult to use, and it doesn't provide much background information. David Sear's Greek Coins and Their Values, vol I and vol II is more helpful, and you can probably pick up both volumes for close to the same price and the Plant book.
For Romans, the Handbook of Roman Coins by David van Meter is, in my opinion, the best single-volume book to start out with.
