Collector publishes updated error guide

Québec numismatist Christian Houle has published his second book in a series on Canadian Elizabeth II error coins.

The latest book, which highlights errors on 1953-81 five-cent coins, follows an earlier guide focusing on the country’s Elizabethan cents, which were issued from 1953-2012, when the denomination was withdrawn. Both books, which are bilingual in French and English, feature the author’s classification system plus pricing tables with market estimates for 1,500 listings of each denomination.

Printed in full colour on spiral-bound glossy paper and featuring about 1,800 images each, the books are also available in a digital format via a thumb drive (only compatible with PC systems).

Coin & Stamp Supplies (CSS), a division of Trajan Publishing, offers each print edition for $64.95 and the digital thumb drive for $35.
