To save space and make it affordable, the book focuses on pricing rather than lengthy historical descriptions, and as such will be understandable to most with a basic knowledge of world numismatics. The scoring is based on the Scandinavian system where 1 is good, 1+ is very good, 01 is extremely good and 0 is uncirculated.

This is the first time in Swedish numismatic history that there is a manual on the market that includes all of the above coins and banknotes with reference numbering and provenance. The author says he “[hopes] it will be a significant contribution to the numismatic field. What I also aim for is to make my books easily accessible and affordable to broaden interest in numismatics.
