Whitman Publishing Releases New Bowers Book on Modern Dollar Coins

Whitman Publishing announces the release of A Guide Book of Modern United States Dollar Coins, by Q. David Bowers. The 320-page book (number 22 in the popular Bowers Series) debuts July 26 and will be available from booksellers and hobby shops nationwide, and online (including at www.Whitman.com), for $19.95.

The Bowers Series is a popular Whitman Publishing library of numismatic books, each covering a different segment of the hobby. Volume 22 explores the full range of modern U.S. dollar coins: Eisenhower, Susan B. Anthony, Sacagawea, Native American and Presidential. These coins, the successors to the silver Morgan and Peace dollars of yesteryear, have been minted from 1971 to the present day in various sizes, alloys, and themes.

“When I started writing this book, I thought it would be straightforward and simple,” says award-winning author Q. David Bowers, the most prolific numismatic writer in American history. “Instead I found these coinage series to be as complex and nuanced as any of the classics--a delight for collectors. All of them are fun to collect, with historic designs to engage the beginner and some interesting challenges for the specialist.”

Research assistance from longtime coin dealers and collectors, U.S. Mint officials, and hobby organizations such as the Ike Group rounds out Bowers’s own active study of these coins. His detailed coverage includes history, mintages, die varieties, grading standards, keys to assembling high-quality collections, and market analysis. More than 800 full-color images, including close-ups of Eisenhower dollar reverse design variations, illustrate the book. Historical photographs provide rare behind-the-scenes insight into the creation of the 200-plus coins cataloged.

“There are many highways and byways to explore in the world of modern U.S. dollar coins,” said Edmund Moy, 38th director of the United States Mint (2006–2011). “This book is the essential guide to the subject. It is comprehensive, written for the new and seasoned collector alike, and authoritative, as one would expect from numismatic legend Q. David Bowers.”

Appendices include a reflection on the Eisenhower dollar by CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan; a richly-illustrated, 11-page study of modern dollar error coins; and a “what might have been” gallery of proposed Native American dollar designs from 2009 to 2016.

Because Whitman Publishing is the Official Supplier of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), ANA members receive 10% off the book when purchasing directly from the publisher. It can also be borrowed for free as a benefit of ANA membership, through the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library.
