While there are many book options available for experienced and specialty collectors, COINS FOR KIDS is an introduction to U.S. Coinage for kids and young adults - or for anyone jumping into the big world of coin collecting. It includes real pictures of coins you can find with a little effort, and a little history and specifications for each coin to get you started. It estimates you chances of finding certain coins in circulation, and introduces coins you might find at the bank, and others you have to order.

The second edition includes expanded information on the new America The Beautiful Quarters, Native American Dollar, Innovation Dollar, and Commemorative issues.
