At the same time in the late s and early s, Cross continued operating the Red Cent Coin Company, with eventual plans to gradually phase out that aspect of the business.
The Red Cent Coin Company was eventually consolidated with Charlton International Publishing in to become Charlton International, which handled both the publishing and supply end of Cross' business. At the time, Charlton Numismatics was one of the leading coin companies in Canada, as well as buying and selling jewellery and other collectables.
As Cross explains, Charlton Numismatics was the first to offer jewellery gold chains by weight. Cross would import the chains from Italy and sell to the public by the gram.
So popular was his service that during the Christmas season, Charlton Numismatics would often sell a profitable sum in gold chain alone. With Cross at the helm, and Charlton assuming an editorial position with the catalogues, the catalogue increased in size from pages to pages between the years of and In , a decision was made to publish a more reader-friendly format that would split the coin catalogue by removing the token and paper money content to devote to two separate books, lest collectors be faced with an unnecessarily thick publication.
The former publication was published with an impressive pages due to the fact that The Charlton Press incorporated banknotes from over Chartered Banks in Canada as well as a section on Merchant Scrip. As a new feature, The Charlton Press identified every Canadian banknote with an identification number, a system that had been in place for Dominion notes and Bank of Canada notes already. As explained in the catalogue, each banknote was identified with a number in the form of "Ba".
The first series represented the bank number.
The second series represented the issue and sub-issue s with two spaces for the issue number, one space for the sub-issue letter and one space for the sub-issue number. The third series represented the denomination and occurrence of the note. After removing the paper money section from the coin catalogue, the coin catalogue was renamed to Charltons Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins, 27th edition and included information on decimal coins, patterns, trial pieces, and collector's coins.
Between and , there was a run in gold and silver on the market.
With prices rapidly fluctuating, The Charlton Press started issuing semi-annual releases Winter and Summer of the Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins to keep up with the ever fickle market. Thus from to , there were 10 editions released in total Editions 27 to In , The Charlton Press imprint, the broken book  and half maple leaf logo was adopted and came to be the imprint for the standard catalogues. Early in , Lorimer worked on a logo for Charlton International Publishing Inc and suggested that the company consider the half maple leaf and open book logo. When Bill Cross assumed the helm of the publishing business in , Jim Charlton continued in his capacity as editor of the coin catalogue until , the 30th edition, though technically Jim Charlton had ceased his editorial functions by Bill Cross assumed full editorial and authorial responsibilities for the 31st edition of the Standard Catalogue of Canadian coins and onwards, as well as all numismatic catalogues and hobbyist material bearing the Charlton name.temp.cmnv.org/mistress-of-night-and-dawn.php

In , Cross disposed of the coin supply and stamp business, while retaining the numismatic and publishing side of Charlton's, which he renamed Charlton International Inc. In November , the company was relocated once again to Yonge Street. In , a special edition celebrating The Charlton Press' 36th anniversary was published that was limited to serialized copies, each one of which was autographed by Jim Charlton and Bill Cross.

In the 7th edition of Canadian Colonial Tokens published in , The Charlton Press restructured the original layout of the book 5.

The catalogue contained all bank notes produced in Canada since the s, from the Bank of Acadia to the Zimmerman Bank. In the 8th edition released in , the catalogue was updated and reorganized to accommodate more census information, to identify notes which had been donated to institutional collections, and to account for recently discovered notes.
Listings were expanded and extensively revised for some bank notes, and notices were added reminding readers of valuations as being inextricably linked to Charlton grading standards. In November , Charlton's relocated to Yonge Street, with the numismatics store occupying the ground floor, and the publishing portion occupying the upper level.

While both varieties of binding were sold for the 57th edition, by the 58th edition, all Charlton Standard Catalogues of Canadian Coins had adopted the plastic coil bound format due to customer preference.

The 63rd edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue on Canadian Coins was the final edition of the coin catalogue that contained all coins under one cover. Beginning with the 64th edition, The Charlton Press separated the catalogue into two volumes. Volume one, covered numismatic issues whereas volume two focused on collector issues.
This was undertaken because of the limitations of plastic coil binding at approximately pages. Had the press not separated the catalogue, collectors would have been faced with an unwieldy page book.
