New Black Book
A Guide Book of United States Coins (Red Book), by R. S. Yeoman, is a pricing guide for United States coin collectors, and is considered one of the most authoritative coin price sources.

The book is the longest running coin price guide.

The first edition, dated 1947, went on sale November 1946. After the first three editions (dated 1947, 1948, 1949), the Guide Book was not published in 1949; annual publication resumed in 1950 with the 4th edition (dated 19511952) and has continued to this day. The book's all-time peak print run for a single year was 1.2 million copies in 1965. The 70th edition, cover-dated 2017, was published in 2016.

The Red Book lists the retail value of all United States coins from Colonial and pre-federal State Issues to all circulating issues, as well as commemorative and modern-day bullion coins, as well as other significant U.S. patterns, private and territorial gold, Hard-times tokens, Confederate issues, Hawaiian tokens and coins, Philippine issues and Alaskan tokens. It also shows Issue Prices and Current Values of mint sets and proof sets.

The values are divided by main coin grades.
