Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.

What is money? We use it every day without giving it a thought. But money isn't limited to coins and paper. It includes a wide range of so-called primitive or traditional currency, surrogates for cash, and even things that are quite invisible.

In Curious Currency, author Robert D. Leonard Jr. takes you around the world as he explores the development of money from the Stone Age to the Internet Age. You'll find a treasure trove inside this colorful, entertaining, and authoritative book: gold, silver, and blocks of salt . . . massive Yap stones and little cocoa beans . . . elephant tails, iron nails, whale teeth, human skulls, and hundreds of other examples of odd and curious money. Each has a fascinating story. Each holds a valuable lesson for anyone who earns, spends, or collects money today.

The updated second edition of this award-winning book includes new information on e-gold and PayPal, proximity payments, cellphone payments, and cryptocurrencies.

"A fresh approach to understanding the nature of money . . . an entertaining overview . . . a provocative study." -- Kenneth E. Bressett, editor emeritus of the best-selling Guide Book of United States Coins

"Strange and wondrous. This is money like you've never seen it before!" -- Q. David Bowers, past president, American Numismatic Association Winner, "Best Specialized Book on World Coins," Numismatic Literary Guild. 160 pages, full color, hardcover.
