 Coin Collecting Publications

If you like keeping up with Coin Collecting news and would rather do it the old fashion way, in real print, you are not alone.  Despite the world going digital, many of us still prefer the old fashion magazine that we can stick in our brief case (or laptop bag) and carry it with us and read at our leisure.  If this is what you like to do, then there are several options for you.  There are weekly newspaper type publications as well as monthly magazines.  Here is a list of some of these publications


 Weekly Publications Dedicated to Coin Collecting

Numismatic News 

Numismatic News was started by Chet Krause in 1952.  That company now known as F&W Publications, has grown to a major player in the collectibles publications space and are the owners of many coin/money collecting publications.  This one, called Numismatic News is a weekly publication that typically will have recent coin news such as major auction results, coin legislation and articles about various types of coins. There is also a large “Letter to the Editor” section that gets quite a bit of attention.  Here is more information about subscription rates.  For current reviews, check out coin magazine reviews    

Coin World

There are really two major weekly publications for coin collecting, Numismatic News and Coin World.  Coin World is published by AMOS Publishing.  Much like Numismatic News, each week will bring you news about major auction, events and coin legislation.  Both publications have a fair amount of advertising by many major dealers.  Each one also has a classified ad sections for smaller items.  More information on rates can be found here.  If you would like to see what others are saying, you can check out reviews at Coin World Magazine reviews.

Monthly Publications  

Coins Magazine

If a weekly publication is too much, then maybe a monthly publication will work for you.  These will be different as they typically do not carry news like a weekly publication.  Coins is another publication from F&W Publications.  Each month Coins will have a section related to coin values, as well as several articles related to coin collecting.  It also has a price guide.  Subscription info is here.

Coinage Magazine

 Coinage is another monthly publication.  Coinage magazine began in 1964.  According to their website, they offer a fresh perspective of numismatics for the experienced coin collector and an introduction to key concepts for the novice. Their goal is to provide informative and entertaining articles for these audiences and to attract new people to the hobby.  There are regular columns and a monthly price guide.  Subscription rates can be found here
