iCoin$ HD is a powerful application that evaluates the current value of nearly every coin issued for circulation by the US Mint, in denominations ranging from the copper half-cent minted in 1793 to the $20 gold piece last issued in 1932, as well as current coinage. Gold and Silver bullion coins are evaluated as well. Nineteen different denominations are described and illustrated, including the State quarters and Presidential dollars. The program allows you to inventory your personal collection.
Whether you are a serious collector wanting a portable method of managing your collection, or someone who is merely curious about the value of an old or new coin, this program offers a wide-range of unique features. Every coin record in our extensive built-in database displays its current market value after you select the appropriate grade of your coin. A built-in image library, licensed by the American Numismatic Association, provides a powerful tool for determining the condition of your coin. You can save your coin records, maintain an ongoing inventory of items you own, as well as coins you wish to add to your collection.
iCoin$ HD does NOT require an Internet connection — all of the data is in the program.
From the opening screen, choose the denomination and then use the calendar picker to select the issuance date of the coin. After selecting the name of the issuing mint (the program guides you where to look on your coin for this information), our program presents images of both sides of that coin. A multi-segment tap bar lets you view the coin in a number of different grades to see which one most closely matches the condition of your coin. You will also see a text-based grading guide to help determine your coin's proper grade. Mintage figures, which are invaluable in determining the rarity of a coin, are also prominently displayed.
Note: Values in iCoin$ HD are derived from a number of industry sources (dealers, auctions, catalogs, etc.) and represent the current retail market value. The prices do not necessarily reflect what you might be offered when selling your collection to a dealer or individual. Use our program to assist in estate planning, insuring your collection and to determine if you have a valuable coin that needs appraisal by a reputable dealer. Our program provides a link to a website providing the names of authorized coin appraisers and dealers.

What's New in Version 5.1
Support for iOS 7 and 2014 coins
this app doesn't point out any rare coins. I also compared some prices it listed, with some I found on the internet, that had HUGE differences. Don't waste your money on this, I wish I had my money back.
