Euro Coin Collection – with 2Euro Commemoratives – for Mac OS X

Euro Coin Collection

Euro Coin Collection is the Mac application designed for Euro coins fans.

View all the coins at a glance in an interactive album and easily manage your Own, Want and Swap lists.

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 23 countries using the Euro as currency, the last being Lithuania (2015), 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 their change.

Professionals will take care of the finest details, from grading to mint marks and special variants, such as Vatican’s “Sede Vacante” series issued in 2005 and in 2013.

All the news and updates!
