Inside you will find a numismatic travel guide, listing over 175 places in 75 countries open to the public, with almost 100 of these described in detail with pictures that are spread over North, Central, and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Oceania-Pacific. The foreword is written by Karen M. Lee, Curator, National Numismatic Collection, National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution.
    "Howard Berlin's book is a delightful guide to numismatic displays the world over, from royal cabinets to Madrid's numismatic flea markets. Even armchair travelers can learn a lot about money from this volume, as I did, from the parrot coin of Suriname to the executioner's penny. For the sake of the traveling public, I hope to see it on sale in airport shops everywhere." -Wayne K. Homren "No matter where you travel, numismatics is there. It connects people from all over the world. And It�s a great idea to give traveling numismatists a guide book into their hands. I hope a lot of numismatists will feel enriched by coordinating their vacation according to Dr. Howard Berlin's numismatic guide book." -Dr. Ursula Kampmann
