"Have you ever knowingly spent $100 on a candy bar or $50 on a soft drink? As ludicrous as the concept sounds, there is no doubt that you have unintentionally done this numerous times without ever knowing it," states the introduction of Strike It Rich With Pocket Change. "The fact is, billions of coins pass through the public’s hands every day and of these coins, a small but significant percentage contain variations in design or errors that make them different than the rest."

U.S. Mint error coin discoveries can range from a couple bucks to several thousand. No computers or coin dealers are necessary with this book, just a fist full of coins.

Unlike rare and obsolete coins, hidden coin treasures are laying around in cash drawers and piggy banks, waiting for the common eye to spot them. This book is a clear and simple guide to prepare any collector or treasure hunter to spot rare coins the average consumer normally would never notice.

With the potential to uncover valuable rarities, this book will bring out the treasure hunter in anyone. It’s perfect for both novice and expert collectors, as well as providing an indispensable tool for U.S. coin dealers and researchers.

Strike It Rich With Pocket Change provides hundreds of impressive, detailed images for accurate identification and a comprehensive grading guide in plain English. There is no need for previous knowledge to get started. Each page has a detailed description with diagramed photos to help identify each coin and to clarify the type and degree of error.
