Here's another vote for The Magic Book. Learn what's in there and you will be ready for Bobo. Or beyond.

Yes, The Magic Book is a great place to start. 

There is also Karl Fulves' Self-Working Coin Magic.

Henry Hay's The Amateur Magician's Handbook also has a section on basic coin magic.

Later (because they are more advanced) you can check out: Richard Kaufman's CoinMagic and David Roth's Expert Coin Magic.

If you want to use something other than books, you can try: 

Modern Coin Magic DVDs (Magic Makers)

David Roth's Expert Coin Magic... Made Easy (L&L Publishing)

David Roth's Ultimate Coin Magic Collection

Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Coin Miracles

Michael Rubinstein also has some DVDs but their name escapes me at the moment.

I think this is enough for a long time...

No one mentioned Bobos? Bobo's is classic and full of ideas to spark some interest.  https://www.amazon.com/Modern-Coin-Magic-Sleights-Tricks/dp/0486242587

I did not mention that book because the original poster already mentioned it, so I'm pretty sure he knows about it... I talked about things he may not know about...

For me personally, Bobo's book is not an easy read for a beginner and should not be treated lightly
the information in this book can be overwhelmed to the beginner, I saw many magicians start up with Bobo and eventually giving up because of the content and the writing 
it's important to see the action, for the benefit of knowing what the effect is to the audience
that's why I suggest watching David Roth in DVD form, understand what coin magic can do, and then it will be easier for you to study from printed source

Some great books have been mentioned. I would like to add, Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. 

There is a great cut and restored bills effect in there that I still use, as well as a bill to orange trick that served as the basis for the routine that I currently perform.

Every once in a while I'll come across a copy at Goodwill and buy it. It makes a great gift for an aspiring young magician.

This is funny. I just pulled my copy of Mark Wilson's Complete Course off my shelf last evening. In my case I was heading for the Cups & Balls section.

I've never heard of that one.

Looks like you can get it pretty cheap on Amazon:

The Futagawa book is an introduction to coins and not comprehensive, but it does provide a nice collection of introductory and basic moves coupled with a good selection of effects to go along with those moves. All in all, it's a good place to START with coins if you want to start with a book and not video.
