Coin Collecting Software for The Mobile Collector
If you are like most collectors you wish that there was a convenient, easy to use, and most importantly portable way to inventory your collection. I am here to say that I have also been looking for that one great software or app to get the job done and I think I have found a couple of options that you might like. Now I know I will get some backlash for this but neither of my choices are Collector's Assistant. This might be a wonderful software but for me price was a little to much $100 out of the box compared to $50 for CD of what I have, even cheaper if you download the digital version or go with the app.The first software I am going to talk about is Liberty Street Software's CoinManage. This coin software is very flexible and configurable. It's key features are a large database of U.S. coins, PCGS slabbed coins can be automatically entered with just the scan of the bar-code, comes with built in reports or make your own custom reports, and can be loaded on any windows laptop. This software runs on window vista, 7, 8 & 10. You can find it on Amazon, Liberty Streets website, or eBay. It cost around $50 for the CD, $70 if you want U.S., Canada, U.K. database, or $90 if you want CoinManage Deluxe and CurrancyManage.The Second one I am going talk about is an Apple & Mac app called US Coin Plus. This app is also very flexible and configurable. It's key features are a large database of U.S. coin that is ever expanding with frequent updates, auto updates to the bullion value, comes with built in reports or make your own custom reports, can be backed up to the cloud and restored to any other Apple device, and can be loaded to any Apple iPad, iPhone, or Mac. You can find it in the App Store for $6.99 and in the future there may be some in app purchases for upgrades. This is currently what I use since I always have my iPhone with me and can check my want list and coins I already have.
