I have a 2001 Red Book that I received as a free giveaway at a coin show I attended while younger, and I will concur with thedeadpoint in saying that it will become your bible if you are halfway serious about collecting US coins.


I also received a 2010 Black Book for my birthday last year, which I found to be roughly comparable to the Red Book. It does not have territorial coins, but I like that it has a brief (.5-1 page) history of each coin/design, and also features BU rolls and mint sets.


You will not be dissatisfied with your purchase, but the unstable situation regarding low 2009 mintages will probably make your book outdated soon. Usually, the books supply numbers and prices for coins made about 3+ years before their publishing.
