My latest copy is a 2016 Standard Edition spiral bound Red Book, don't see myself updating it until maybe 2024/25. For anyone interested in the latest coin releases and market price fluctuations you always have the internet, but 8-10 years between books seems like a reasonable span of time to wait for updating.

Might hold out past 2026 though in case the Mint does something crazy for the US Semiquincentennial

"Semiquincentennial"

Great word!

5 points to Gryffindor for even knowing that's a real word.

My next one will probably be a Mega Red.


Yes, especially as my eyes get older...

The Red Book belongs to another age.
Before the Internet print media was the only source for information about coins. This helps explain the lack of a need to update every year.
As for myself, I like the feel of a hardbound edition
and would not be happy with a spiral bound.
But each to his or her own taste.

I picked up the 2019 edition from Hobby Lobby (with coupon) a couple weeks back. I had skipped 2018. I have the inaugural Mega Red as well as several editions going back to 2010. I don't know why I typically buy the annual edition when one every 5 years would do. On the other hand, the Mega is probably worth picking up annually for the special sections. I mentioned in another thread I probably will when they start focusing on half dollar and dollar coins.

I get a new one about every 5 years.
And I get the small spiral bound type.
