Yesterday, the coin-collecting hobby got an update for the next generation: Lookzee. The app takes advantage of an iPhone’s camera to take an image of a collector’s coin, which is then cross-referenced against a database built from thousands of coins sorted by Tim Rathjen’s revolutionary “Machine.” After analyzing the collector’s coin, Lookzee provides its denomination, type, and year of issue. The app also provides a broad estimate of the coin’s worth as well. A video of the app in action is available on Lookzee’s official Facebook page, and while the only version available at the moment is for… Full article at the source>

Newport Beach, California) – Thanks to a brand-new app from Professional Coin Grading Service (, collectors can manage their coin collections from their smartphones. The company just added the PCGS Set Registry companion app to its growing list of mobile apps.

This app, compatible with iOS and Android, comes on the heels of an update to the Set Registry desktop site, which allowed for enhanced mobile compatibility. Both the app and recent update were steps in providing convenience and a renewed experience to users.

“Making the site mobile was a must. It is simply more convenient to manage your set on the go. In addition to the added convenience, we’ve included new features, such as image uploading and the “What If” feature, which we believe will be a hit among set owners,” stated PCGS President Don Willis.

Collectors can now easily upload images directly from their mobile device to their collection. Scanning the coin’s cert number automatically adds the image to the set if a PCGS TrueView™ image is available for the coin. Or, users can take a picture of a coin and instantly upload the image to their inventory.

The “What If” feature shows collectors how a PCGS-graded coin would impact their set by simply scanning or entering the coin’s cert number. Once the coin info is entered, a before and after comparison of their set’s rank, rating and grade is shown.

“Released as a companion app, collectors are encouraged to use both the app and desktop site in tandem for the complete experience,” said Set Registry Director BJ Searls.

Considering the enhanced, mobile experience, the company anticipates the app to be a popular download among collectors.

“With this app, you can update and access your set from anywhere, as long as you can connect to the internet. The interface is streamlined, and it launches and performs functions quickly. There are many reasons collectors will want to download it,” said Willis.

The PCGS Set Registry companion app is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play. Visit to learn more.

Developed in 2001, the PCGS Set Registry was the hobby’s first free online tool for organizing and analyzing coin collections. For more information on the PCGS Set Registry, and to start your online collection, visit

This year’s Christmas release is a coin with a difference.

Struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver, it depicts snow covered roofs set against a backdrop of snowflakes falling from the night sky. A silhouette of Santa Claus and his sleigh drawn by reindeer is reflected across the full moon.

Out of the ordinary

But its out of the ordinary aspect is a multimedia portrayal of Santa that can be seen via a smartphone or tablet.

To experience the delightful imagery and music, a collector must first download the free DAQRI application from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. Then by holding their device’s camera over the reverse of the coin (or the picture of the coin provided in the packaging), Santa can be seen delivering the Christmas coin on Christmas Eve!
