Since the introduction of the Euro in 2002, many people started collecting coins because each country has a different design for the national side.
With now 20 countries using the Euro as currency, the last being Estonia (2011), collecting all the coins became a real challenge!
The app has been designed both for amateur collectors and numismatic professionals.
Amateurs will have a new and easy way to discover and collect coins, even by just checking change.
Professionals will take care of the finest details, from grading to mint marks and special variants, such as the Vatican’s “Sede Vacante” series issued in 2005 and in 2013.
