In this beautifully illustrated book, distinguished numismatists Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett take you on a personal guided tour of the most significant U.S. coins of the modern era. From humble Lincoln cents to costly platinum bullion coins, each of the ranking coins was voted into place following rigorous research to determine which coins were worthy of becoming contenders for the 100 Greatest. This revised and updated third edition features new additions to the list and dramatic, even surprising, changes in ranking. A new appendix shows how coins changed position on the list and explains the reasoning for the most extreme changes. You’ll learn the behind-the-scenes stories that illuminate how these particular coins became desirable—and why they illustrate, better than any others, the high point of our nation’s coinage.
