Here the novice will find the knowledge required to enter the world of Proof gold coins. The knowledgeable collector will appreciate the information specific to Proof gold coins gathered in a single volume. Seven chapters illustrated in color with detailed captions describe type and variety for each denomination of Proof gold coin. Additional chapters define Proof Gold, explain how it is manufactured, how to purchase it, and how to research appropriate pricing information. The importance of grading and the rarity of these coins are discussed and several sample collection sets are suggested. The information within is practical for the collector and investor alike and includes a thorough glossary and index. The bibliography lists many important references for further study.
