Our Favorite Coin Collecting Apps for Researching & Organizing Coin Collections
PCGS Coin Facts App – Android & iOS
The first place to start for any collector of course is to check out the numismatics apps provided by PCGS. PCGS is the industry standard for grading and valuing coins, so you can be confident their information is accurate!
CoinFacts is one of their most popular ones and a nice app in the fact that you can be sure of accurate and up-to-date information on the pricing and value of different coins.
PCGS offers an entire line up of different coin apps, so even if Coinfacts isn’t exactly the one you want, you are sure to find others! They provide a nice variety of different coin collecting apps for both iOS and Android phones.
Here is a list of all the apps for numismatics offered by PCGS:
- PCGS Price Guide: An app for looking up prices

NGC Coin Collecting App – Android & iOS
The NGC coin collecting app is available both in the iTunes store and on Google Play. This app is created by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and offers the ability to look up and verify different coins they have graded.
The NGC census is also helpful because it gives you a rough estimate for how rare a coin you have may be. Rare coins generally are more valuable, so it’s helpful to know whether your coin is common or whether it is highly sought after by other collectors.
This app is free, so it’s definitely one worth checking out to see if it is useful for you. It is also available in English, Chinese and German.
Coin Book Pro by Pocket Soft
Coin Book Pro is an app available for iOS that offers pricing and photos for different coins. Unfortunately I could not find an Android version of this app.
This is a paid app, but it offers a user-friendly interface and is highly reviewed. Being able to look up different U.S. coins and images is always nice!
US Coin by SaintSoft LLC – Mac & iOS
If you are an “Apple Person”, finding apps for Mac that are also compatible with iPhone and iPad can sometimes be tricky. Fortunately US Coin by SaintSoft is one of those choices!
This was the first app I found for Mac, and it’s available as an app for your Macbook. There are also companion app to use on the go with your iPhone or iPad.
This app is helpful not just for research, but also for tracking and managing your own coin collection. This is very useful if you’re looking for a digital option to use along with a coin collection spreadsheet!
The SaintSoft blog written by the developer has a lot of tips for using both the desktop Mac and iPhone iOS apps, so if you are considering the software this is a good way to research it to see if it meets your needs.
If you are an Apple person looking for a way to catalogue and research coins in one place it is definitely a good coin collection app to consider.
Coin Manage by Liberty Street
Coin Manage is an app by the software company Liberty Street. The app is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
If you are looking for a way to keep a database of all of your coins along with the PCGS values, Coin Manage might be a good budget friendly option to consider.
They offer a free trial on their website, so give it a try and if you like it you can always upgrade to the paid version of the software!
One of the features I like about this app is the ability to generate reports. Reports can be a great thing to include in your coin collecting binders!
Collector’s Assistant by Carlisle Development
Carlisle development offers a variety of coin collecting software both for Windows and Mac systems. They offer Collector’s Assistant for managing your inventory of coins, as well as a Lite Version for seniors which offers a simpler interface with the most popular features.
In addition to Collector’s Assistant for coins, they also offer Currency Collector’s Assistant, which is software useful for managing and tracking currency beyond just coins, such as dollars and other notes.
OpenNumismat – Windows, Mac & Linux
If you love open source software, you’ll love OpenNumismat. This is a free software program developed to help you manage and organize your coin collection.
This software allows you to organize features of different coins, as well as upload up to 8 different pictures of a coin. You can also create a wishlist and batch edit different coins in your collection.
When it comes to researching and organizing your coin collection, there are plenty of great coin collecting apps to choose from. With options for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux, you are sure to find the perfect coin collecting software that works for you.

What are your thoughts on Cointracking.com?
Hi Charles, I haven’t used that specific website myself but I will definitely check it out!
I have tried 4 apps and couldn’t find a way to work the apps.
That includes CoinManage, Coins, PCGS Coin Facts, and PCGS Set Registry.
I emailed the listed developer of coins but he did not respond.
It is disappoiniting..
There may be a few you like a little bit better. These apps are meant for phones. Let me know if there are any you find we can add to this list!
My 82-year old Dad died in March 2020 and he didn’t use computers, but we needed to start selling the coins to settle his estate and had no idea how we were going to estimate what we had. I researched for a solid two weeks looking through numismatist forums, asking dealers, etc. to find what most people recommend since we needed something as complete as possible, preferably with photos for cross-reference, and as USER-FRIENDLY as possible. My siblings and I have been using Exact Change (WildMan software) and there is NO WAY anything could be better than this with over 75,000 images and the ONLY one that includes Krause catalog numbers, plus customizable fields and reports, and much more. Check out the comparison of the major software at the link below. Exact Change beats everything out there, hands-down. PLUS, FREE updates, and best of all FREE tech support answered quickly by a REAL expert, one of the owners who is also a coin dealer himself. HIGHLY recommended. It has been a Godsend to us. https://www.exactchange.info/compare.htm
Oops! Exact Change doesn’t have an app yet. But it’s still the best around!
Hopefully they will create an app soon!
How did you end up selling to get the best price? In person shops/dealser, ebay?
We are going through something similar and I am completely lost!
It is overwhelming!
Same here. I have a lot and I am completely lost in where to begin or what to do. I have trying to figure out the best way to price out and inventory the coins.
Do you have an app that lists all us coins with headings for grade for each coin? Example. 1910P us cent_g, vg, f, vf, ef au, unc, etc . so you track quantities of each coin in each grade.
Thanks for looking into this.
I will definitely look into it Bill!
I have been looking for an app that tells the value of coins. I found a couple apps that say they do this but once I’m on the app, it only shows what the coin is and just coins that are for sale. Very frustrating.
What is the best single app (if one exists) that can scan both PCGS and NGC barcodes and other companies (if they exist) to catalog a vast collection??
It seems like US Coin has been pulled from Apple App Store and the publisher may have gone dark so to speak. I have used for 6 years and like it but not sure what’s going on. No reply yet to an email to developer
That’s a shame Will, let us know if you hear anything on it!
Is there an app for grading and appraisals on mint error coins anywhere?
Hi Kace! I haven’t found an app yet but I highly recommend the book Strike it Rich With Pocket Change by Brian Allen – it’s recently just been updated too! Lots of great pictures + estimated values in it. Maybe we could persuade him to make an app?
