    I believe the red book they're referring to is the current coin book with price, condition, errors, etc all included.

    One good source of keeping updated on coins would be "Coins" magazine. They use to include the # of each coin minted, but for some reason stopped, I saved a copy from 2015 for that reason. Really a good mag. to have, buttons? Casper-2 pointed one out, which I myself will check.
