iCoin$ is a powerful application that evaluates the current value of almost all coins issued for circulation by the United States Mint, in denominations ranging from the copper half-cent minted in 1793 to the $20 gold piece last issued in 1932, as well as current coinage. Eighteen different denominations are described and illustrated, including the U.S. State quarters and Presidential dollars. Additionally, the program allows you to inventory your personal coin collection, with annual price updates to keep your records current.
This powerful, interactive program for the iPhone and iPod Touch provides you with an extensive and comprehensive database of United States coins. Whether you are a serious collector wanting a portable method of managing your collection, or someone who is merely curious about the value of an old or new coin, this program offers a wide-range of unique features. Every coin record in our extensive built-in database displays its market value after you select the appropriate grade of your coin. A built-in image library, licensed by the American Numismatic Association, provides a powerful tool for determining the condition of your coin, thus assisting in the overall evaluation of your collection while eliminating any guesswork. The ability to save your coin records maintains an ongoing inventory of items you own, as well as coins you wish to add to your collection.
iCoin$ does NOT require an Internet connection - all the data is in the program. No special books, tools, or prior experience is needed in order to start enjoying this easy-to-use program.
From the opening screen, select the denomination of the coin (cent, nickel, dime, quarter, etc.) and then use the keypad to type in the date of the coin. After selecting the name of the issuing mint (the program guides you where to look on your coin for this information), our program takes you to a screen with an enlarged image of that coin. Tap on the coin image to see the reverse of the coin. A selection bar lets you view the coin in a number of different grades to see which one matches the condition of your coin. You can also switch easily to a text-based grading guide to help in determining your coin's proper grade.
Note: Coin values in iCoin$ are derived from a number of industry sources (dealers, auctions, catalogs, etc.) and represent the retail market value. The prices do not necessarily reflect what you might be offered when selling your collection to a dealer or individual. Use our program to assist in estate planning, insuring your collection and to find out if you have a valuable coin that needs appraisal by a reputable dealer. Our program provides a link to a website providing the names of authorized coin appraisers and dealers.
